The Chill Out Zone

I am on an early morning Chiltern Railways train into London Marylebone. I am sat towards the front. Every seat is taken, but nobody is standing. It is not cold.

It would appear that nobody knows anyone else. Not a word has been uttered within earshot for over half an hour. The only sound is of someones phone keyboard making the odd clicking noise. Oh, and a newspaper just rustled.

There are no blue 'Quiet Zone' stickers on the windows in this carriage. There's no need. This is the chill out zone. Bonus, it looks as though we are about to to arrive into Marylebone five minutes ahead of the Public Timetable.

Have a good day everyone!
