Railway news from England. It has always amused me in American movies where a long lingering goodbye kiss was tolerated by the Greyhound bus driver. Once the woman had finally boarded the bus after the lingering kiss and a long and meaningful conversation, the door would shut and off the bus would go.
It is not how public transport works in Melbourne. The tram/train/bus door will be shut in your face if you take the time for a kiss or to try to have your final drag on your ciggie. And so it should be.
I suppose delaying trains was the reason that Warrington Bank Quay Station in England introduced kissing and non kissing zones.
Is this how privatisation of train systems and competition between different train operators works?
Meanwhile at High Wycombe a good old parting pash is welcomed.
Warrington Bank Station is on a train line run by Virgin. Hands up who likes Richard Branson? Ok, none. Hands up for someone who shakes things up? Branson has.
High Wycombe, 'seems' to be run by a more local company known as Chiltern Railways. But wait, no, it is run by Deutsche Bahn AG. We all know about Deutsche Bank. Is it in liquidation yet?
