Cheltenham Festival

The train manager apologised for the lack of newspapers for first class passengers this week, which he ascribed to delivery problems caused by the Cheltenham Festival (the horse-racing one, not the arts).

At Paddington, on account of the same event, barriers have been erected to control the flow of queuing passengers for the Cheltenham trains. A supremely pointless sign demands "If you have a seat reservation please have it".
