It's been a while since I've done this.

Busy* commuter service, 7.30am.

I'm on the 225.  So no USB port.  Disgraceful...

The seats on the Azuma are rock solid. No usb is a fair trade off for some comfort IMO.

I did wonder about that, which led me to book the 225 instead.  Same reason why I try to avoid Thameslink trains where possible.  Or just end up standing instead.

Also, do people actually realise they're in a quiet coach?  Bloke behind (a Steven Smith from Grantham) is having a right old job taking out car insurance on the phone.  I wonder if he's on a collection mission too?  Either way just STFU plz.

amuse yourself by writing down all of his personal details as he blabs them to the whole carriage then enjoy the look on his face when you hand him a bit of paper with a scammers delight written on it. or use his details to order him an amusing* gift from a dodgy website !

Well bought sir. I was sorely tempted by that myself. The days of cheap RWD proper Volvos are ending surely

Much too far south.  It needs to be up here in the Lakes, where the SVM can ogle it closely.

Brilliant!

Delighted that it’s made its way closer to me- DIBS!

Seeing that photo makes me immediately want another one. 😢

Excellent to meet the estimable RobT earlier. I hope you have a successful journey home and that this particular slab of Swedish metal brings you great joy.

It's also now too inside the ULEZ, but I can dodge the cameras around here for local trips and just pony up the rest of the time.  I'd forgotten how bloody marvellous these things are, so it's worth every penny I end up coughing up to TfL.

180 miles completed.  The only issue being some trim that wanted its freedom.

That'll be why the traffic rozzer lingered next to me on the M25.  I didn't hear it flapping about though.

Obligatory pez shot to finish.

Put his details into cartakeback so the car he just spent ages insuring has been scrapped by the time he gets off the train.

Hi Rob thanks for sharing your trip. Takes a die hard autoshitter to buy a non ulez compliant car while living in the zone, hats off to you. Looks a good car.

What's it like in the zone? Is there really as much camera damage as we hear?

Rob's also now 'old money' with a old Volvo in the ULEZ. Should start wearing a cravat soon.

Thanks, it's a great car.  Very much as described by @2316cc

Can't say I've paid much attention to the camera situation, but I did see one that'd been cut down and dumped by the road side recently.  Just 300 yards up the road from me.  It's still possible to spot older non-compliant cars in London, but they certainly have got thinner on the ground.  I've also noticed a few more historics when travelling around my manor, which is either just coincidence or some heroes have decided to do exemption properly and go 40+.
