I’m sat on a quiet sunny platform at Newton Abbot station: soon my train will arrive to take me on the first leg of a journey to New York.
I was up at 2am this morning NY time, and all being well I should arrive in Queens at about 9pm. But for me it will be 1 in the morning – a long day. I’m off to a bad start: the London train is delayed by about 12 minutes – so far. Scratch that: it’s now 15 minutes late. Will I get to Heathrow on time?
