  • amsterdam81... the broken down train was somewhere South of Ipswich on the mainline ... the chord is North West. *** Considering its a different rail line... why was the non-London services cancelled?!

  • Now there is an alternative via the chord then freight must be forced to use it to prevent this sort of disruption to passenger traffic. I hope the freight company receive a very large penalty but it will not compensate the passengers who have had to suffer today.
