After a nice early start, I hopped on the c2c, Jubilee and Overground and made my way to Croydon. There are coffee shops in Croydon - the only good thing about it! Quite a wait there, but there was a train to catch, so I couldn't drink sitting in the coffee shop unfortunately. 377118 and another unit I didn't get the number of took me down to Horsham, where the train divided.
