Still, I'm back at work now, and in the office again from tomorrow, so you'll see a couple more updates before the month is out.
As for what little there is to report on from last week:
- Monday night, I arrived at the Bakerloo Line platform at Paddington at 18:08, but had to wait until 18:15 for a train to depart (no reason given for this, but it appeared to be to do with station crowding). This made me 10 minutes late arriving at Waterloo, so I missed the connecting fast train to Hersham, arriving there four minutes later than the later train was scheduled to (all within Zones 1-6). This made me 30 minutes late home altogether for £75.
- Tuesday morning, the train from Hersham into Waterloo arrived a whole four minutes early, though at that time it didn't let me take an earlier connecting tube than planned. The tube did, however, run perfectly to time
- Coming home Tuesday night, I went from Custom House (DLR) to Waterloo, which involved changing to the Jubilee Line at Canning Town. According to journey planner, I was 14 minutes late on this journey. Amazingly, this didn't cause me to miss a connecting train. I'm not quite sure how that happened. The train arrived back at Hersham one minute early, but that minute was gained outside of TfL's sphere of influence, so no refund
