It was really sad to wake up and realise that I had spent my last night aboard my favourite ship.
Leaving is always the hardest.

But it werent all depressing. Nope, it had snowed!

There was loads of the white stuff about.... SNOW BALL FIGHT!!!!!!!!

We didnt stay for lunch since we were not sure if our train was running.

We had the signing off and everyone seemed to like our track chart (I will post a pic as soon as I get it scanned into the computer)

The three of us.... and its snowing.

Pete was kind enough to give the three of us a lift to the train station. Thats were we parted ways from Matt. It was very sad walking away by our selfs. But!!!!! We get to the platfrom and Ellen, Pat and John all waiting for the train. Pat got off at a couple stops before, but the rest of us carried on to Limestreet Station. John rushed off to catch and earlyer train and use 3 went up stairs into Coopers Pub too keep warm. Good thing we did too. Gave me a chance to check our train tickets. I have it in my head that our train was leaving at 2.... actually it was arriving home at two. So we only had to wait 45mins. Ellen left first (after regailing us was us with stories of her new job)

5 mins out of the station, and the train stops... dead. Then all the lights go out and the heating turns off. Scary. Me thinking its possibly a good time to ring my boss and tell here Im not gonna be making it into work on Friday.
But all is well a little while later (unfortunatly) Because of the snow and slush we limp pack at only 104 miles per hour since 3 of the 6 engines were not working.

Changing at Milton Keynes I noticed that there was a new addition to the platform staff
I think some one had gotten bored.

We made it back ok, if a little sad.

But hey, there is always next time!
