W81 THE CONTROLLER'S OFFICE

Friday the 13th would appear to be living up to its reputation, judging by the controller's chalk board with its list of delays etc. Has the railwayman at the door arrived to announce further bad news or has someone found the missing 1.13pm Bradforde Longflap railcar, one wonders?

Not particularly efficient at operating trains, the Portersfoote Bunting Light Railway also has a problem in the paperwork department, although the chief clerk is something of an expert when it comes to the Whimshire Gazette crossword. The fact that only one of the battery of timepieces seems to be functioning need not worry one unduly, however, since the area served by the railway has always ignored GMT preferring local time, as governed by the church clock which is clearly visible from the station platform.
