    Grrr... Bally Network Rail! :-(
    When would you prefer they did engineering work? 4 p.m. on a Friday afternoon?
    Yes.  That's how we roll.
    Wait... Isn't that literally how things work here in the USA?

    They had said that Hastings trains would be terminating at London Bridge... But there weren't any; at least, none between 09:00 and about 10:00 this morning.
    There were services every 30 minutes from Hastings to London Bridge this morning, starting at 0539. Every single one of them ran and arrived at London Bridge within a few minutes of the advertised time. They kept to what they said they'd do.

    The bit that was probably missed was that they didn't go via Sevenoaks or Orpington - if that's where you were, you'd still be waiting, although I doubt posters at those stations mentioned Hastings services. Whoever's to blame, it's still not Network Rail.
    Gawd...

    Well, I specifically asked at Sevenoaks on Friday night and they specifically told me that, yes, trains would be going to London Bridge... And yes, the electronic signs in the station specifically mentioned that Hastings services would stop at LB as well. They made no mention of the fact that none would stop at Sevenoaks.

    You're very defensive... Do you work for NR? ;-)

    Anyway, does it really matter? It was a light-hearted, throw-away, "Bally Network Rail" comment... I'll give you a "Bally South-Eastern" instead... How's that?

    i miss the old slam door trains that use to run on the line from London to Portsmouth.
    ok so them was OLD, but you could pack in the people.
    the uk train network has been going down hill for some time now.
    and i live close to a line. its not fun to hear line work later at night.
    and they do way more work on said line now next to say 15 years ago.
    now i would love to see a lego model of a network southeast train from 1995.

    ^ When I travelled to school, back in the day, they had those horrible old trains with the "doggie-carriages"... They were un-connected cubicles with bench seats and a slam door on each side. All kinds of dodgy goings-on went on in those, especially in the Sevenoaks - Tonbridge tunnel... How people survived in the 70s / 80s, I have no idea...

    Then you've got good grounds to complain. 'Cos they're not.
    You're very defensive... Do you work for NR? ;-)
    Nope.
    Anyway, does it really matter?
    To me? Not really, although I do get fed up of people targeting just any old bit of the railway empire because it's good fun.

    To you? It darn well ought to - and that's the point. You can carp about Network Rail, and it'll achieve absolutely nothing because what happened had nothing to do with them. If, on the other hand, you carp about the station staff at Sevenoaks giving you duff information, to Southeastern, then hopefully somebody will track down whether the wrong information was given to the staff, or whether the staff weren't actually thinking about what they were saying.

    Either way, next time you're working on a Saturday, you stand a better chance of being told the correct information so that you can make appropriate arrangements to get to a brand store, and the next person who asked the same question might actually make their flight rather than being stranded on the wrong side of London.

    On a good day, you might even get a good-will voucher which you can indirectly spend on your favourite construction toy!
    I'll give you a "Bally South-Eastern" instead... How's that?
    Bingo!

    I didn't get to the Stratford LEGO Store after all... Usual problem at work: We complete 99.9% of our activities in plenty of time and then spend another 5 hours dealing with the remaining 0.1%

    It won't be, by the time I get out of work... It's looking like another midnight or later finish again. Hey-ho.

    I *am* going to take home all the flattened LEGO boxes which are currently stored under my desk.
    When I get LEGO delivered to the office, I generally decant the LEGO itself into my rucksack to take home on the train and leave the boxes until I have the opportunity to catch a cab home. Such as today. :-)

    To Sevenoaks? After 10 p.m? With somebody who's not as nissed as a pewt? You're going to make one cabbie very happy. Perhaps you should ask HIM for a tip?
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,097
    ^Hehe, very true... I'm allowed to get a cab home on the company's account, if I'm still working past 10pm. It's fair enough, given that I've been in the office for nearly 12 hours already, with another 2 or so to go. I'm unlikely to catch the last train home.

    @iso3200 The carousel is just a crappy set. I thought if I strengthened the deck dividers (4L bars inside the 1x1 rounds) and changed out the decorations round the edge of the roof to something that doesn't break when you breath on it, I'd be fine. Instead I spent our show reinserting all those little axles in top. If you come up with any brilliant solutions please share.

    My TV went out on me last night, so after buying the new one today I will be unable to buy the Porsche and Big Ben until next year:(
    ShopJimmy.com! My tv went out a little over a month ago, and after minimal research, had my parts ordered, shipped, and tv repaired within 5 days. Granted, those five days kinda sucked, but we found other stuff to do and I learned something new (seemed a bit daunting at first, but ended up being way easier than I expected).... and I kept most of my fun money where it belonged. :D

    Maybe you can still fix it and have an extra tv for elsewhere?

    lego status time.

    work on my Deli MOC is on hold. i got it 90% finished.
    i like to build some small bit's more. but i got stuck on lack of part/ ideas on how to build it. a small delivery van would work well with the MOC but that it being the hard part. give me a building to MOC up and i can do that. a Van/Car. and i get stuck.

    so that's on hold. until i find a set i can buy and MOC with for the van.

    next up is #75904 that i am going to build and then make a simple display for Halloween. and i will use some other set's i own as well. May also use Ghostbuster set's in the Halloween display. no real MOC work in this just setting out set's so it makes a nice Display piece.

    Thanks for the advice @LEGO_Dad77 . I didn't chuck the old one, it still works but watching football on it was impossible with the monochrome red tint it had and the trails that were created by movement.
    I have thought about researching fixing it. It was a blessing in disguise, my new one is far superior and great for all the sports I watch, especially tennis!!

    Mixed day. Went to a Lego nature photography thing in the local wood with the kids to find no organisers there, just another family. Took some pics anyway.

    received my latest Lego purchase to add to my display. It arrived packaged in a thin layer of bubble wrap, a Lego bag and some brown tape! Not only was the box a bit squashed but the kids spotted the bag straight away when I opened the door and announced 'daddys bought Lego!'. Even when I send a £10 set, if its a boxed set it gets sent in a box ffs.

    Nice LEGO delivery status today. Parcel on my desk when I got home. SW advent calendar for me, a set for my secret Santa at work, each year me and a mate do SS between just the two of us and buy a nice set. Also meant a London Bus and a Spider-Man polybag for me. All good.

    I finally managed to pull together the pieces-- or an approximation of the pieces (I do tend to sub to suit my own tastes)-- to build Cafe Corner. The stupid ski decoration above the corner door is driving me insane because it Won't. Stay. Put. Nicely. I'm about to do the unthinkable and reach for the Kragle.
