People waiting for a train knowing that when it arrives it will be rammed full like every other peak time train on the Sheffield to Manchester line. This mainly occurs in the Marple/ Romiley areas where there is an inversely proportional relationship of number of passengers to size of train. e.g. 100 passengers / 1 carriage containing 30 seats. This leads to them getting on the train (alighting) and standing up for the whole journey - standalight!!
Romiley station was full of standalights awaiting the 8:20 train from Sheffield. The previous train had been canceled and the thirty year old mini-bus with rolling stock arrived, steamy windowed and fit to bursting. "there's no way we are getting a seat on that baby" "if we wait for the next one I'll be late for work again. The only thing I'll be waiting for then is the sack"
