Is it a record?

I went to Manchester today on Virgin. The trains were on time in both directions (well, 6 minutes late arriving in Manchester apparently counts as on time...). Is this a record? It feels like seeing snowdrops in November.

Incidentally, revisiting Manchester Piccadilly station for the first time in more than fourteen months reminded me of a post by Norm the other day extolling its virtues in comparison to Leeds' station. Having regularly commuted between the two for about three years, I can see where he's coming from, although I have some pretty horrible memories of the trains coming out of Manchester of an evening to get back to Leeds. But one has to remember the one key point about Manchester Piccadilly Station. It is simply, by definition, on the wrong side of the Pennines.

that amused me too. i should have pointed out, however, that platforms 13 and 14 on piccadilly are as godforsaken as anywhere on leeds station
