Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

If you're on twitter, can thoroughly recommend following @garius who explains why the problems on the trains have come about. He's written a fantastic explanation on the issue of drivers - employing, training, poaching. One route that has been introduced requires FIVE different drivers at the moment!

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

It seems that someone at GN Rail has come up with a cunning plan to reduce the time that their twitter team spend answering questions. They have devised a standard response. This has been tweeted as a reply several times this morning: "We have cancelled the services we know are not able to be r...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Not for all of us. Going to work via Hertford East would take 40 minutes longer and cost £6 more per day than via Hertford North for me.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Holy Moly! They are anticipating disruption, due to phasing in of services, until 8 June! The Hertford Loop isn't specifically listed but we've seen wholesale disruption today so it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that we will be affected. http://m.nationalrail.co.uk/pj/disruption/details/984...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

First day of the new timetable. 0942 Hertford North to Moorgate running on time ✔ 1012 Hertford North to Moorgate cancelled - oh dear 1042 Hertford North to Moorgate cancelled - uh oh. Still too early for any info on the 1112. Not sure what the cause of the cancellations. Rumour is that some drivers...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Of course, a "more robust" timetable and shiny new trains will have no effect on days like yesterday when the overhead lines came down (not GN's fault) and you are told to make your own way home. And then this morning you get to Hertford North and no one has a clue what is happening as the...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Why have you cut two of the five peak time morning trains? I don't see where these trains have been cut. I've compared the current and new timetables and found the following for Hertford North to Moorgate services: Between 6am and 7am Current - 5 trains New - 5 trains Between 7am and 8am Current - ...
