I was recently at a meeting in Bristol. Returning to York, I boarded the Dundee service at Bristol Parkway. As we left the station, there was a slight variation on the standard announcement
This service is the departure for Dundee, calling at ... just about everywhere you can think of.causing much hilarity amongst the passengers.
I sympathise with the announcer. The service was calling at: Cheltenham Spa, Birmingham New Street, Burton-on-Trent, Derby, Chesterfield, Sheffield, Wakefield Westgate, Leeds, York (yay!), Darlington, Durham, Newcastle, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Dunbar, Edinburgh, Haymarket, Inverkeithing, Markinch, Ladybank, Cupar, Leuchars, and Dundee. Phew! We would have been nearly at the next stop before the announcement was over!
