Well at long last we got the replacement tables and chairs at the station, and very nice they look too. Unlike the old ones these are round and wooden with nice wooden chairs.
The old ones look like poor mens picnic benches made for people around 4ft 6in in height.
We are awaiting the confused faces this weekend because the old tables were oblong and the new ones are round.
Now I must admit the old table and chair units had one big advantage, they were ok to sit at but not comfortable enough for people to loiter long. The new ones don’t have that feature.
The station is going up in the world, if we could just get the straw off the floor and unhook the old oil lamps from the ceiling we would see even more of an improvement,
I did think of posting a picture, but I think it’ going to be better if you came and had a look. Should you do so don’t forget your wallet, so you can christen the new seating with a purchase.
