Delays on rails after train break down

RAIL commuters in Suffolk faced delays of up to an hour this morning after a train broke down on the main line.

COMMUTERS faced more woe today as they arrived at Ipswich station to find London bound trains delayed by up to an hour.

National Express East Anglia apologised for the disruption, caused by a broken down freight train at Marks Tey.

Graeme Potter was among those waiting patiently for a train at around 7am this morning.

The 32-year-old Felixstowe Port worker said: “80 percent of the time the trains are quite good but when it goes foul, it goes really foul.

“As for the services, they are overpriced for what you get and out-of-town trains are expensive and infrequent.

“I don't travel to London as often as other people who always seem to be affected by the trains.”
