The distance between Pollokshaws West and Pollokshields West is ...

£5.*

When you show your ticket to the ticket inspector on the gate, specifically ASK him, is this train going to Pollokshaws West, and get on the train in all good faith, would you not think he would TELL you if you'd got it wrong?
There were points failures and delays, go-slows and stops (all this before the first destination).  And then I realised.

Don't breathe a word ...!


* That was the taxi-fare to rectify the situation ...

could it have been that he didn't understand your pronunciation?

Hmmm. Whatever my pronunciation, the pronunciation on the TICKET, which he seemed to LOOK AT, was Pollokshaws West.
