ESE wind of 13mph, and high spring tide.
Just watched the webcam, and a wave went over the passing HST.

Yesterday evening several XC services were very late having been slowed down between Birmingham and Cheltenham.  The 17:17 from Taunton to Penzance was over an hour down and following services late to the point that by 18:15 there was a series of trains indicated as all coming through together for the West within a few minutes of each other and due at the same platform as the terminating (and reversing) Cardiff service.  Less than gruntled pax trekked in the heat from Platform 2 to to 3 and I overheard some pretty angry phone calls about 'typical trains'.  I wondered whether one of the two trains for Penzance shown as being about 5 minutes apart the last time I looked would be terminated early and which one it might be.  Perhaps today's events were the same as the timings look as though they might be the same trains.
