Festina lente

There now seems to be the prospect that the the rail journey between the cities of Leeds and Manchester may be reduced from about 55 to 30 minutes. That's the good news. The bad news is that this will at the soonest be achieved in 2038.

The distance involved is about 65 kilometres. This compares closely with the rail journey I used to make very often between Munich and Augsburg back in 2002. Then as now the trip took 32 minutes. 

Just sayin'.

Damn, 2038?! That's too far away! This is such a great idea thought. It will cut time by nearly 70%!
