TIME – Ailsa’s WTT

Tic… toc, toc… and again toc toc, tic… toc…
There’s a problem with church’s steeple clock
Is it caused by a loose cog or jammed sprock?
OK, I’ll go before in my mouth you shove a sock!

Sorry… I couldn’t resist! This is the comment I posted on Ailsa’s weekly challenge. Time? The Pink Floyd song off Dark Side Of the Moon springs to mind…

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day 
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. 
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town 
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. 

But what should I post? Not an idea came into my head. Until home time! Home time after the obligatory Friday evening sup or two of some red stuff. Home time… at the station platform. The camera popped out of the bag after a mad moment of wind-blown inspiration.

Who should we believe?? Look-see the time’s given for the arrival of the next two trains. No… it’s not the same train calling at two different locations… er, stations. No, it’s not the times for diffident platforms… those two trains will be coming in piggyback if that display is to be believed. If my train is on top how would I get in? If my train is doing the piggybacking how will the folks wanting to get off manage? Will we have to assist and catch them when they jump? Question time? Quandary time!

Where's my train gone to now??Then… look at the display a few minutes later. What’s happened to my Maynooth train? Has it lashed by incognito? It’s all a mystery to me? Time, however, flies when you’re having fun so maybe my train flew by in the secret as well? Who knows? I don’t have the foggiest idea and it seem nor does Irish Rail! New meaning to the concept of time zones? Testing times? Only TIME will tell…

  3. Fun take on the challenge! Hope you got your train…. 😉


  4. So … I need to know … how did you get home? And was it on time?


    • aj vosse says:

      I took the first train to come along as far as Connolly Station (3 stops later.) There I can fortunately get the quick intercity home!

      Most evening I usually walk to Connolly Station, about a 25 minute stroll, look back through the blog and you’ll see many photos that I managed to get while strolling along the River Liffey.

      Only, Friday evenings I usually stay for a glass of wine or two and if I run out of walking time I catch the connecting train… long story but some will say I may be a tad too unsteady to walk that far! 😉

  7. Just wait until you can travel by tardis!

      Forgive my ignorance… I had to drop that into a search engine… so, now I’m a little more enlightened…

      *TARDIS*, or Time and Relative Dimension in Space… charming!! 😉

      PS – Thanks for the enlightenment! Time will tell if it bears any fruit…

    Ah the irish public transport system! You’re lucky anything arrived with the weather 🙂


    • aj vosse says:

      Yep… there were delays and cancellations. I believe some lines were badly affected! We can’t do anything about the weather or the disruption it causes!

      We can hope the folk working for the great transport companies can start getting their act together though! I can share many instances of stupidity at stations but then I’ll be ranting… 😉

  9. I visualised that train on top of the other and people helping each other climb up and down 🙂 Very funny.

    This reminds me of a couple of James Bond movies where ships and space capsules are swallowed by bigger ships and spacecraft. Could this be another where one train is swallowed by another?


    • aj vosse says:

      Indeed!! You have the answer… my problem though? Will the one that swallowed the other go my way or not! Only time will tell!! 😉
