those stairs

Taking S. to the Crystal Palace station the other day, we arrived on platform 2 with a few minutes to spare. As we got to the bottom of the stairs I noticed two elderly West Indian ladies about to climb them. “The only trouble with this place is the stairs, I tell you”. “Oh yes, the stair problem, phew!” said the other.
Five minutes later, after seeing S. off I reach the top at the same time as the two ladies, all of us out of breath.
