Train journey from hell!

Just returned tonight from being oop north for work.

What should have taken five hours by train took 10 hours . Apparently overhead power cables had collapsed. So spent an two hours stopped at one station, another half hour at another then an hour and a half on a bus (preceded by queueing for half an hour waiting for buses to turn up) to pick up another train.
A fellow traveller said the same thing had happened the other week.

I had been tempted to fly but resisted , trying to be green. Must admit part of me wished I had done.

Bloody trains.
