    Frequent train travellers!

    Hey,

    Everyone I know is saying I'm really not myself latley and I know exactly why, because I'm fucking terrified of traveling so far all alone! I know I should be all excited and jumping off the walls, but think It will only really hit when I know I'm on my way and/or almost there!

    I would be so wound up If I didn't keep looking at the train I'd be getting running to Plymouth but It's now been cancelled twice so getting a bit like...oh shit. In this situation what exactly happens? Do they just put you on a different train? Or provide alternative transport? Does this incurr a fee? I've tried to ring but keep getting foreigners who just completely miss the point I'm trying to make. Sorry never done trains before, usually have Mr Blonds driving me.

    Any info would be great and help me sleep tonight!

    if your train is cancelled your ticket will be accepted on another train or they will provide a replacement coach. dont worry B you will do great. just grab a mag and relax on the train- its never as scary as it first seems- is it this friday you are in london? im up at uni so wave!

    If you've got a direct train from Leeds, when you get to Tamworth & Birmingham give everyone a wave for me!

    If your train is to be cancelled/delayed or just doesn't show up for some reason, as Dizzy said they will put on some kind of alternative travel. Load your iPod, a good book/magazines etc and you'll be well away! It will all be fine! Oh, and make sure you have your phone charger to hand, you may be doing a lot of txting

    Woop! Sounds fun!

    Yeah, the trains have plug sockets, so you should be able to plug your phone in to keep it fully charged! You do not know how much of a god send them plug sockets were when I used to travel from Tamworth to Exeter! The amount of people I used to see on the train with their laptops plugged in and watching DVDs!

    Yeah, get everyone to txt you, before you know it you'll be there

    When my sister come to visit from back home, she ended up going to the wrong place and she still got here okay. Trust me, if she can do it - ANYBODY can do it!

    Haha! I would pay to see you randomly waving as you pass certain areas! Hehe! How funny!

    Sorry, I forgot that MarineGF is on the route! Bristol Parkway or Bristol Temple Meads? Or do you want to wave at both hehe

    Wave as you go through Reading - we're about due south-ish

    Have a fab time down there, and if you dare, have a sausage at Cap'n Jaspers on the Barbican for me!
