Where is Everyone?

I’d like to make it known for the record that in the 18 months I’ve been travelling on SouthWest Trains I’ve never had an eight car train in the morning. No matter how many school children are trying to cram themselves on, no matter how buggered the District line, or how cancelled the previous three trains have been, four cars have been our lot. Until today. For today, when pretty much the entire commuting population of London was either lodged in the bosom of its family eating turkey sandwiches, or out laying waste to Oxford street in the sales, and when the platform this morning held an excited crowd of three, we got an eight car train.

Not that I’m complaining, or anything. I just wanted it said.
