Help I am a Prisoner of SouthWest Trains

It appears there may be a downside to SWT’s new random train length policy. There was a phone message from a colleague this morning saying she would be late due to ‘being kidnapped by a train.’ When she finally arrived, footsore and weary from the walk from Brentford, we got the full story. The train was one of these unexpectedly long ones, and of course all the Kew Bridge passengers got on at the back because that’s where the exit is from the station. When the train got to Kew Bridge, only the doors on the front four coaches actually opened. It was only as the train pulled away that she and everyone else realised what was going on, and by then it was too late. So – either the extra carriages were just a cunning trap, or the train driver thought he was in Isleworth where only the front doors open. Either is a bit of a scary prospect. I knew it was too good to be true…
