Naturally as the snow arrived the underground fell apart. I mean snow! In
winter! Fancy that! Power supply problems? Who the fuck are they kidding.
Perhaps if they were more honest with their excuses people might not hold them
and the various rail companies in contempt.
What do you think the problem was? How would you describe it?
I don't know what the problem was but it was very annoying and poorly
I was doing KX to Southgate at around 10am.
15 minute wait for any train (no problem yet) but first train was to
Arnos Grove so we waited for the next one to Cockfosters.
Got on train - as we set off the automatic announcement '... to Arnos
Every single station to Bounds Green had the platform indicators saying
the train was to Cockfosters. At bounds green platform indicator said
Arnos Grove with a Cockfosters train 6 minutes behind.
Got to Arnos Green, train did terminate, to be immediately presented
with an announcement 'no trains going further than Arnos Grove, buses
stopped running 30 minutes ago, cab conpany says there are no drivers.
You cannot continue your journey from here'
Not a single announcement until the only option was to turn around and
go back. Not even an announcement from the driver that the platform
indicators were wrong.
