First day back at work for me after the elections - and a bit of a shock to the system to be up and on a train so early. Yet the recently completed planting has started to transform the area and when established will create a lovely green slope welcoming us to the station.
It reminded me that the Brockley Assemby should be receiving a report from the nely-elected Mayor soon on any proposals for the Coulgate Street area in general. I will look forward to that.
The train driver also helpfully announced that there will be 'serious changes' to the timetable on Sunday because of the East London Line. It's probably just as well that his bosses and others in charge of our railways didn't describe these changes in quite the same way all those years ago. Still the East London Line will be a welcome addition to public transport in Brockley and I'm looking forward to catching one of the new trains next Monday (Brockley - Whitechapel, Whitechapel-Euston Square). Commuters hate changes to schedules - it's just as well that I've only got a week to get used to the current timetable.
