I went into  Aberdeen yesterday with our younger son when he was going to work, we met our elder son and we all had breakfast together before James started work. Then a wander round the shops with Douglas looking for last minute buys before he gets married at the beginning of September. When James finished work Douglas's fianc√©e joined us and we had an early dinner out. They left to go for a walk and James and I headed for the station, James hates the train at 5.26 it's always really busy and it's like a cattle stampede on the platform. Do you mind waiting for the next train at 6.20 mum ? it's not as busy,  ok lets go for a coffee. At 5.21 let's just go for the 5.26 mum, mad dash to the station 5.25 on the clock when we arrived, through the ticket machine and a sprint to the platform,really nice guard shouting encouragement 6 seconds to spare, but we were on the wrong end of the train for where we wanted to go , the last 2 carriages only go part of the away so we had to change carriages at the next stop, next time I'll say no if he suggests a last minute dash like that. Trouble is it's usually 2 hrs between trains apart from at peak times so they are always busy. Driving in and parking for the day is more expensive than going by train unless there are more than 2 folk going you can't win.
