From Putney to Barnes South West Trains Thu 23 Oct 2008 10:50-11:00

Driver: There are passengers on this train. This is platform 15 to Hounslow via Richmond. The train on platform 19 is leaving now and will get there first. This is the 10.46 to Hounslow via Richmond. The train on platform 19 is leaving now and will get there faster than this one.

Cue me and another passenger rushing to the door, only to find that it’s locked. At which point, the train set off.

Very, very odd.
