A bit of people watching this evening.
I joined the queue for a train at around 18:15. At 18:20, twenty minutes before departure, with a queue of no more than 20 people, boarding commenced. Two passengers ran – well sprinted – to Coach E as if their life depended on it. This train has nearly 300 standard class seats and 145 first class seats.
There are only 3 people in my carriage and I guess there are no more than 50 people on the train as it departed.
So what was the hurry?
