That Javelin train was included with your TravelCard during the Olympics - I can confirm it was fantastic!
And it was SIX minutes Stratford to St Pancras! Fastest train in the UK I believe.
I recall me, my missus, and young lad had tickets for Hockey in the Olympic Park in the morning, and then the Men's Football Final Brazil v Mexico at Wembley the same day in the afternoon. Massive Samba/Sombrero Carnival along Wembley way! The journey took no time at all.
On the way home we ate in a Brazilian Restaurant in Westfield over-looking the Olympic Stadium that evening, they had a huge screen showing Mo Farah win his 2nd Gold.
By the final lap there was a huge crowd outside watching through the restaurant window. Inside everyone was going mental all standing on the tables, cheering, etc. My then 5 year old son was totally bewildered!
A magical end to a truly magical day.. and it all went very smoothly thanks in no small part to that train cutting out the need to spend much time on the tube!
