The train stops just outside Sheffield at 16:50.
'We are sorry to inform you that we are unable to access the Sheffield station, due to flooding. Umm... We have no further information on how long it will take to resolve this situation, so.. Umm.. We're going to wait.'
Every fifteen minutes for the next two hours we are informed there is no new information. Every new 'we are sorry for the inconvenience' is a nail to my coffin.
Finally, at 19:15, there is a voice from the other end of the carriage: 'I can see a platform, and it's beautiful!!!'
