            We have learnt to expect that trains will
            be punctual. After years of pre-con-
            ditioning,most of us have developed an
            unshakable faith in railway time-tables.
            Ships may be delayed by st.mp3s; air
            flights may be cancelled because of bad
            weather; but trains must be on time. Only
            an exceptionally heavy snow fall might
            temporarily dislocate railway services. It
            is all too easy to blame the railway
            authorities when something does go
            wrong. The truth is that when mistakes
            occur, they are more likely to be ours than
            theirs.
            After consulting my railway time-table,
            I noted with satisfaction that there was an
            express train to Westhaven. It went direct from my local station and the journey
            lasted a mere hour and seventeen minutes. When I boarded the train, I could not
            help noticing that a great many local people got on as well. At the time, this did
            not strike me as odd. I reflected that there must be a great many people besides
            myself who wished to take advantage of this excellent service. Neither was I
            surprised when the train stopped at Widley, a tiny station a few miles along the
            line. Even a mighty express train can be held up by signals. But when the train
            dawdled at station after station, I began to wonder. It suddenly dawned on me
            that this express was not roaring down the line at ninety miles an hour, but
            barely chugging along at thirty. One hour and seventeen minutes passed and we
            had not even covered half the distance. I asked a passenger if this was the
            Westhaven Express, but he had not even heard of it. I det.mp3ined to lodge a
            complaint as soon as we arrived. Two hours later, I was talking angrily to the
            station-master at Westhaven. When he denied the train's existence, I borrowed
            his copy of the time-table. There was a note of triumph in my voice when I told
            him that it was there in black and white. Glancing at it briefly, he told me to
            look again. A tiny asterisk conducted me to a footnote at the bottom of the page.
            It said: 'This service has been suspended.'
