Ask Sir Topham Hatt the tough questions
Apologies for the lack of updates, I had some time off to finally get my broken collarbone fixed up. I was back for a few days and then I've been off for the school holidays. I've missed the whole new timetable fiasco, the problems caused by people being sick, signals failing, doors being held open, people getting backpacks in others' way, farting, sitting with legs akimbo, and all the other things that can impact on the efficient running of our trains.
But I did notice that there's been a big upsurge in SMS alerts from the Connex systems over the last couple of weeks. And they were notable for almost always being issued after the scheduled departure time! So no improvement there then. Let's add it to the list of questions for Sir Topham, shall we?
