Train Story. In 1976 a London suburbs boy was fascinated when new electric trains started as he imagined a future of monorails and flying cars. He would collect the numbers such as the 313062 as he crossed the railway by footbridge walking to school.
40 years later. That boy is a man living 20 miles north and today I take the exact same train to work. In 2016 I pay a lot to get into one of the biggest financial capitals of the world. The trains are often delayed, cancelled and frequently break down.
