Brians Odyssey

In which I purchase my tickets for my journey  
In which I proceed to Clapham Junction – some reflections upon the peculiar nature of that station – on to Egham  
In which - having failed to get a taxi and having then found no assistance at a bus stop - I walk in the rain from Egham station to my mother's home  
In which my brother gives me a lift to Egham station – we converse about the future of the Conservative Party  
Egham Station – on the changing nature over the years of platform announcements – one remarkable announcement – a happy Virgin customer – reflections on other businesses at railway stations  
The next station was not Virginia Water  
On the niceness of some London walks and the boringness of other London walks  
Clapham Junction – more queueing angst
