I Finally Catch A Train From Meridian Water Station

Around lunchtime today, I finally caught a train from Meridian Water station.

Trains have been running, but unfortunately, the departure and arrivals page on my phone, doesn’t seem to be working if you type in Meridian Water station. Also if you want to get the stops of a train that stops at the station, you get the message.

Sorry, Something Went Wrong!

Looks like finger trouble to me!

Even now as I write this, if I try and find the trains departures at Meridian Water station on my phone, the system crashes. But on my computer, if I look for trains between Meridian Water and Tottenham Hale stations, I find that there ten trains between 23:00 and 00:10.

So it looks like those who leave the Field Day before midnight should be able to get home.

Surely, the two systems should give the same answers.

At around five this evening, with my phone still saying sorry, I went back to Meridian Water station.

  • I first tried to get a train from Tottenham Hale, but none seemed to be running.
  • It was very busy with passengers for Stansted and commuters going home.
  • So in the end I took a train to Stratford and stayed in it until it returned.
  • Everybody was able to get a seat.

Eventually, I got to Meridian Water station with the festival goers.

Note,

  1. The train was showing Angel Road station instead of Meridian Water station.
  2. the numbers of festival goers were not as many as I thought they would be!
  3. The traffic was still as heavy.

But at least it wasn’t raining.

Conclusion

The station is working, the trains are working, but the information could have been setup better!
