The train now arriving at Platform 1 won't
Train going north stopped abruptly. Guard' Apologies etc..we have stopped outside Dunbar Station (and with great satisfaction) Dunbar Station has only one platform.' I checked timetable (always carried about my person to supplement Guardian) No other train due into Dunbar, north or south for 40 minutes, plus or minus. Train moved into Dunbar Station. Stopped. Passengers got on.
Newly arrived Passenger to veteran passenger (got in at Berwick) 'Why did the train stop outside the station?'
VP 'Because Dunbar has only got one platform.They said'
NAP ''Yes we were on it waiting for the train'
VP. ' What about the other train blocking the platform?'
NAP 'What other train? This is the only one this morning so far'The other train. Blocking the platform?
