Oxford Road Station May 2009
I had just seen one of the lad's off on an adventure and with a bit of time to spare I tarried on the platform watching the ebb and flow of passengers in the rush hour.
Here were all you might expect at a busy station in the early evening.
Two were waiting for an airport train, another with that resigned and world weary expression of a seasoned traveller accpeted she had just missed her train and opened a book.
The rest stared expectantly ahead as the Buxton train was announced but steadfastly failed to make an appearance.
