Guess who left his jacket with his wallet and train card at Auntie Didn’t house?  Aye that would be me… Bampot!

ScotRail customer service

At the risk of sounding like a broken record – too late – ScotRail really are beginning to wind me up. Cancel a train with moments notice, then no update on the next train due 25 minutes later. So I drive to nearest station, which is on a different line and get told my ticket…

agile not fragile
