January 14th – A grim, mostly wet journey to Telford and an even wetter one coming home that really wasn’t conducive to photography.
One thing I did notice in the morning though was that after about two years of being out of order, the information display on the Birmingham bound platform of Blake Street Station is finally working again.
Excuse upon excuse was made, with vvarious parties blaming each other yet nothing seemed to get fixed. Occasionally someone would clearly have a go, as the garbage the screen displayed would change, or it would throw up network status mesages.
At long last, due to the late arrival of the display, we can now see how late the arrival of the train is.
I suppose this is progress, of a sort…
