“Control to train 732.”

“732 receiving, over.”

“How many passengers do you have, over?”

(WTF? Do you think I count them on and off with a clicker or something?)
“Er….not many Controller, over.”

“OK, you are going to be short-tripped and sent into the depot since we’re all in a bit of a tizzy up here*.”


“Did you receive that, Driver?”


“Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen. This train will now be terminating early so if you want to go anyplace then hop over to that one there”.

Several hundred people got off. Oh well. It’s all relative isn’t it. It was definitely not many compared to, say, Glastonbury.
