There was plenty of time to get to the station to catch the train to London. It had come from Edinburgh, next stop London. A 40 year old diesel that provided an uncomfortable rough ride. It seems amazing that a diesel should be used when there are wires all the way. This is not environmentally friendly transport.

We had plenty of time to have lunch and a drink at the Parcels Yard in Kings Cross before taking the Underground to the Millennium Gloucester hotel close to Gloucester Road. My cell phone is picking up a strong enough signal through the window that we will not need to pay for wi-fi
