Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

The new timetable actually has one more service between 6.00am and 10.00am than the current timetable.

Great Northern-Thameslink Pay As You Go

Govia have finally got round to adding a pay as you go function to their Key smart card. It's called KeyGo. Very handy if you don't go into London every day.

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

I saw a tweet a week or so ago that showed one of the units being tested so, hopefully, they'll start introducing them soon. This link (pdf) says that they have "modern toilet facilities." Whether or not you'll be able to get to them in the rush hour is another thing! http://www.siemens.co.uk/pool/n...

Hertford Mercury website

Has the Mercury website gone the same way as it's paper version, i.e. weekly?

The latest story is about a crash on the M25 at Waltham Abbey on 29 November - 6 days ago.

The twitter account is also very quiet as well.

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

It just gets worse and worse. They are currently reporting that police have shut off a section of the A10 between Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage.

Re: Three cheers for Mark Prisk

If we're going to bring up Mark Prisk being the commuter's friend, maybe we should look at his voting record in parliament. He CONSISTENTLY voted against slowing the rise in rail fares. https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/11172/mark_prisk/hertford_and_stortford/divisions?policy=6692 And he also voted ...
