The trains were particularly rubbish this morning. Engineering work at Rugby had over-run so all the trains on the line between there and Birmingham were horribly delayed. As a result the local stopping train to Birmingham was very crowded.
When we got to Birmingham International it was announced that the express train on the other platform would be leaving before us and so everyone who was going direct to Birmingham (myself included) moved over to that train.
After a couple of minutes where neither train moved, the train manager came onto the tannoy to explain that the driver refused to move because the train was over crowded. He wanted around 100 people to get off the train. I joined a few other people in moving back to the local train, which thankfully was still there. Some people decided to stay on the express.
We had the last laugh - our train moved first while the express was still at the platform.
