- "I'm afraid you're going to have to get used to having those portakabins around for a little while longer!"
- ―James' driver
Building Blues! is a magazine story.
James sees some ugly grey buildings that his driver calls portakabins. James is happy as long as he does not have to see the eyesores ever again. But he is in for a shock when he gets to the station and finds out that the waiting room and the Fat Controller's office are being decorated, so they have to use portakabins until the work is complete.
