Strangers on a train

Share this article

A few weeks ago, I met a very sociable woman on the train going to Brighton – but Worthing was the final destination for Pat.

As for me, I was heading for Eastbourne. I had an instant rapport with Pat and we talked about her holiday in France with her daughter and husband, who were permanent residents in this country.

I told Pat that I had lived in Shoreham for very many years, and our true friends have asked us to go back, but we will have to give this good thought.

I must admit I meet some of the nicest people on Southern Rail. So, hello, Pat, I hope you are keeping well.
