As it was raining hard I decided to use the train.
The slow train was on time and due to the Olympic timetable the Javelin was already on platform 6 at Ashford.
As for the duration of the games it doesn't go any further I guess it is easier to have it there.
The front carriage is usually full even at 0913. Today there were 5 of us. One got off at Olympic Park. Sadly, to accommodate the tourists and games visitors the regular commuters have been sold a bum deal.
The last train back to Ashford on this route in 21st Century Britain is 2139. That's 9.39pm in real money. Disgraceful.
