Cambridge Station


A long favourite of this blog I know. However, this is the latest sign on the platform:

What they haven’t quite added in terms of improvements is “knocking the whole thing down and rebuilding it”. Cambridge Station is a real joke. Okay, it’s better than it used to be, but still pretty poor. I love the emphasis on planting schemes, yeh to busy commuters paying ~£25 a day to get in/out of London I’m sure they really would like to see some plants ! Maybe a decent coffee place with more than 1 person working in it (making and serving) might be start. Maybe removing the barriers that have to have 2 people standing beside them to constantly override maybe another.

The picture isn’t so good because as I was taking the picture a rail worker on the platform asked me what I was doing in a Cambridge-esque way (hint of superiority about him). I guess someone who’s job it is to shout “please stand back from the yellow line” likes the idea of exerting some degree of authority. I didn’t give him any cheek back as I realise it must be bad enough to wake up every morning and know that you’re doing a job that could be replaced by a tannoy !!
