New Uniforms in town too!

So what's with the
new uniforms people?

Yes.. the bright blue hats and coats of LU stuff, have now been replaced with, er.. dark blue hats and coats. Can any staff that read this tell us why it's been changed! And if they prefer it, or not? (PS from Annie - check out The Station Master's Blog for piccies like the one below of the old and new uniforms side by side)

Also.. a classic moment at Parson Green this morning, when two giggling teenage girls got on. They were lost in their own world dithering about and had to jump onto the train at the last moment just as the doors were closing.

Against the odds, the 'flip flop' style shoe that one of them was wearing got caught on the bottom of the train as she got in, and it feel down between the train and the platform onto the track below!

Bizarrely, she decided NOT to go back and get it and wrote it off - even though I explained to them that it probably could be retrieved for them, but no. Instead they got off at High St. Ken where I think she decided that she just nip down to the shops there (in her one remaining shoe and sock) and buy a new pair instead.

So if you see a pink shoe on the tracks at Parsons Green today, that's why...
