It’s all a bit blurry, but what does Cross Country mean?

CROSS COUNTRY is a UK railway company that sort of goes up the middle of England and includes Oxford on its way to wherever it ends up.

Engineering works are always a bit of a problem. But when the trains do run they have a very useful socket into which you can shove your charger for your PC or your mobile phone.
