Violent train shaking south of Cuffley, heading north

Over the past couple of months I've noticed the train shaking as it goes over a bit of track between Crews Hill and Cuffley, and it's been getting worse. Tonight as we went over the same bit of track, despite being seated, everyone had to brace themselves, and everyone looked around slightly shocked...

Yes, I didn't notice that until a few hours later. Oh well, that on top of everything else made me work from home for the rest of the week :)

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

I'm disgusted at this service. I also think Govia should lose the franchise.

These are the trains currently cancelled from Highbury and Islington to Hertford North, all consecutively:

16:03, 16:18, 16:28, 16:48, 16:58

Good luck getting on a train.

Nobody tried to build Rome in one day though, but that's what Govia tried to do.

Re: Exiting Hertford North nicely

Thanks chalkie911.

It is a minor gripe, one of those that, after a few years, starts to annoy you, particularly when it's not just one person but four or five, holding a lot of people up.

I am real thanks.

Exiting Hertford North nicely

Hello, I'm going to have a moan - about the people that get off the train at Hertford North and decide to get their phones out at that point in their journey, then walk r e a l l y s l o w l y down the myriad steps staring intently at the screen sending messages and holding up everyone behind them. ...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

I've just heard on the radio the timetable has already been scrapped and an emergency replacement put in place due to problems. This doesn't inspire confidence for tomorrow morning.

Re: Rushgreen Roundabout Dangerous Congestion

I didn't know this thread existed, otherwise my last thread on this subject would have been appended to this one :) I have some indirect contact with Herts Police, but I don't think it would make it any easier than getting in touch through an official channel, would it? Something I think could be im...

Rush Green McDonalds chaos

I'm getting so sick of this. The McDonalds causes chaos, I just popped up to the BP garage to get some petrol for a courtesy car, but I had a ten minute wait just to get to a pump because of all the abandoned cars, where people seemed to leave them wherever they liked, to go to McDonalds. Then there...

Re: Sele shops disabled bays

While I completely agree about the misuse of designated parking bays, bear in mind that not all disabilities are obvious to the casual observer. I understand that there are many disabled people who get abuse from the public for parking abuse, when they are entitled to disabled parking. Ultimately, ...
