Sleeper going nowhere
Sleeper going nowhere
I was booked on the sleeper from Fort William to Crewe on 7th July 2005 but events in London on that day resulted in a major change to my journey. There was much disruption to rail transport and the sleeper trains between Scotland and London were cancelled. Intending passengers were accommodated in the sleeper cabins but the train remained stationary in the platform.

I resumed my journey the next day on day service trains and arrived home about 12 hours later than expected. This picture was taken at about 21:15, nearly an hour and a half after the scheduled departure time.
