Ages ago I posted about the s1kr1t rail replacement bus from Ealing Broadway to Wandsworth Road that runs every Tuesday. Today, we took it. The man at the ticket office was a bit confused when we asked where to get the bus from, and directed us to the District line platforms, even though I think the tickets he'd sold us don't have Underground validity ("ANY PERMITTED", no maltese cross). [The answer is bus stop F]

It made good time from Ealing Broadway, arriving at Kensington (Olympia) maybe 20 minutes early. We were the only people on the coach, and as such got to sit in the seats by the emergency exit with enough legroom for a someone wearing stilts. It waited at Kensington (Olympia) for the 20 minutes, nobody got on, and then drove to Wandsworth Road station (which is in Clapham, unlike Clapham Junction station which is in Battersea). this is something like the route it took

We didn't stick around for the return journey, two hours later. I wonder what the coach driver does in the meantime...?
