Away day two---Sporz: With King's Cross in London closed for improvements and nee train from Peterborough to London on the 'East Coast line', we were forced to drive to Stockport near Manchester and get a 'West Coast line' train to Euston in London---and dee the same on the retorn jorney!

Away day three---The Liverbirds: We had a direct train to Liverpool--BUT!!!-- the train developed a major fault and we were forced to get off at Manchester and wait for half an hour to catch a 2nd train to Lime Street! (in Liverpool) (wastin' valuable drinkin' time in the process!) 

Away day four---Lestaa:
A train strike on Sunday by 'Cross Country' trains workers, meenz that wor travel plans will be disrupted yet again, az there iz a severely reduced sorvice and we will just have to 'play it by ear' to get there and back!

"ARE WE JINXED---OR WOT!???"
