So far the train has left on time from every station. To the second. Despite a bit of snow lying around, the train hasn't needed any of the extra time built into the timetable.
It is a beautiful day up here in the Potteries. Blue sky. Snow on the ground but a lot less than in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
So far, Chiltern Railways and Cross Country Trains have done well for me.
Only an hour to go - I wonder whether my destination has an aquarium?
