Virgin Trains revisited

We were waiting for the train this morning on platform 2 at Waverley Station and about five minutes after I had cast scorn on my companion’s predictions of a last-minute platform change, and about ten minutes before departure time, the loudspeaker sprang into action for an announcement that our train would depart from platform 8 – at the other side of the station, up an escalator and down some steps. As we boarded the train at last, the announcer informed us that there were no seat reservations in place – coincidentally another of the pessimistic predictions I had cast scorn on earlier.
Oh well, at least there was a train. As our previous experiences show, you can’t always rely on that with VT.
Meanwhile I’ve been collecting more food every time the trolley comes along.
