Today at Blackwood Train station, I was interviewed by a Sunday Mail journalist.

Apparently they are running a campaign to encourage more investment in public transport, particularly after the problems the trains had yesterday with the computer system failing completely.

I didn’t make the copy in the final article - oh well.

Looks like I will need to get Owen’s autograph after all (he’s the guy on the left). I was sitting just out of shot behind the guy standing up near the door on the right :-)
