Wizarding rail: three posters.
Again, it amuses me, at least.  I can only imagine that, in a post-War Potterverse, the rail system would be extended beyond the Hogwarts Express, and take over all the railways that were taken out of Muggle service by Dr Beeching.  And I imagine that, at least once or twice, Dean Thomas would be asked to do a poster....
Two up trains to Oxford...

A Dean Thomas classic...

Another iconic Dean Thomas rail poster....

I take it because they're magic, they actually run on time and don't break down randomly in the middle of nowhwre :D

Well, mostly.

Although there are occasional delays: Dementors on the line, you understand.

You mean, if I were a witch I wouldn't have spent the weekend in the gloom that is travelling between Oxford and Cambridge by bus? 'Snot fair!

I must confess to a certain amount of selfishness here.

If, by chance, your excellent fic - particularly your Wimsey-fic - should happen to be written on trains and the bus, I can only hope for increased (and thus productive) delays.

Re: I must confess to a certain amount of selfishness here.

Is this clouds and silver linings :-) Fic does get scribbled on trains (which have tables), but not on buses, which swerve and are less inducive to concentration. A good thing that Easter's journey t't' North will be made by train, which should satisfy me (more comfy) and you (Virgin, delays).

Linings, at least, however cloudless the day.

And I for one at least note - mentally or where possibly actually - dialogue on buses, which is often fascinating.

I can hardly wait for the literary consequences of yr next journey.

Re: Linings, at least, however cloudless the day.

Bus dialogue is indeed usually much better than train dialogue (except for my sister, who tends to end up sitting near Alan Bennett).

You, my dear friend...

... are possessed of a remarkably - nay, enviably - fortunate sister.

Fate does indeed oft smile upon the young woman.

My thought exactly. I hate the X5. Last time I was on it I was ill, and I was only going to Milton Keynes (what do you mean, that's reason in itself?)

I take travel sickness tablets religiously these days, and I was still groaning gently for the first two hours. I'm getting a car the second I have somewhere to park it.
