Dealing With Late Trains

Last night after the Yeovil match, there was a spot of bother on the trains at Ipswich. A freight train had broken down and the knock on meant that all of the other trains were delayed and cancelled.

I’d just missed the 21:43 back to London and the next one, which was the 22:23 had been cancelled. So I had to wait nearly an hour until the 22:43 arrived.  Thankfully on time! It was on time at Liverpool Street, despite having to make two extra stops.

GreaterAnglia dealt well with the problem and there were staff everywhere.  The only place I didn’t see any staff was on the train, but that didn’t of course matter.

Because of the delays getting to Sudbury from Ipswich was difficult and GreaterAnglia were providing extra transport from Colchester to get people home.

So their response was excellent and totally at the other end of the spectrum to what I got from Deutsche Nahn at Osnabruck.
