One Tram

    No Comments

    Three for the Womble Kings under the common
    Seven for the Train Lords in their halls of CrossRail
    Nine for Train Drivers doomed to die
    One for Boris, on his dark throne
    In the land of Morden where the tramlink lies

    One Tram to rule them all
    One Tram to find them
    One Tram to bring them all
    And in South London bind them
    In the land of Morden where the tramlink lies.

    Meanwhile, behind the popup, two approximately half cubes float off the screen in opposite directions, spewing green plasma and debris… On closing the window, a crippled cube spawns where the old one was.  You gotta love scripted fights…

We ate a lunch at the Betjeman Arms and meandered over to the check-in for Eurostar. No sooner had we got through than they announced that the train was boarding. Next stop, Paris Gare du Nord.
