I attend a multicultural church in Swindon, Wilts. I have been in attendance there for three years plus.
One Saturday, last year, on our way to Bath, the train stopped as usual at Chippenham, Wilts. I spotted a church member, who lives in Chippenham, seeking a seat along the train gangway. He never spotted me until I drew attention to myself and my wife.
In the carriage there was only one seat available, an end seat on the other side of the passage opposite me. Both of us were stunned!
The train had EIGHT carriages.
