Acton Main Line station in snow
Acton Main Line station in snow
On a day of substantial travel disruption because of snow and iced points the train just leaving to Paddington is on time. The man walking down the platform is the only member of staff at the station - the ticket office is closed. Although this train was on time, my Geograph member friends on it were much delayed travelling to Torquay, were diverted through Bristol, held up outside Bristol because points were iced up, then couldn't go beyond Exeter because the line at Dawlish was closed, spent the night in a hotel in Exeter, got home almost 24 hours after leaving Acton.
