COMMUTER Anita Curtis has been pleasantly surprised by the service on the railways so far this week.

Starting her new commuter diary on Monday, Anita emailed to say: “It’s looking good! Train for a Monday morning had all its carriages and the right formation too. Arrived on time and only those from Colchester struggled to find a seat.

“Fingers crossed for this evening. Will this be a good week?”

And the return leg was as successful.

“Again a full train and correct formation.

“The nice catering lady was offering “marked down” sandwiches for £1.50. Can’t see a stampede at the moment. Well, we are home on time- just as well as tummies are beginning to rumble (there’s always those sandwiches!).”

  • Motorcyclists beware! They are going to start charging parking for motorcycles very soon. Parking fee + train fare = I'll just bike to Colchester instead.
