Bizarre lack of communication at LB. Nearly missed the 9.04 to Uckfield because the sign said Expt 9.08. So I went to M&S to get a beer. As I walk to the front 4 at 9.03, they are frantically blowing whistles and telling people to run. I said to the bloke it's leaving at 9.08 and he yelled back at me "it's the 9.04". Before I could suggest he was a silly fool, I just avoided getting caught in the closing doors. I bet at someone had to wait another hour to get the other side of Hurst Green. With all the problems, surely this is something relatively easy to sort out.

I didn't mean to upset anyone!, more drivers are needed. I just posted an observation that in my experience the service has improved since the strike/ot ban days. Obviously not a shared opinion. I'll go back under my rock

(On recenttraintimes.com it's hitting 95% for 10 week period. I guess I've just been lucky)

Apparently no LOROL today as they have pulled their 378s in due to a fault yesterday.

Nope, train made extra stops due to this. Can't see London Overground returning the favour

On a positive note, on-board communications seem to have vastly improved in the last 6-9 months. Keep it up drivers

From ABC:

"The full story of what happened behind the scenes after our court case can be found in yesterday's NAO report, pages 37-38. The DfT's decision on force majeure was not 'imminent' as they claimed in court. In fact, the deal was pulled together hastily and mostly **verbally** (no supporting docs as evidence). It involved GTR BUYING OUT their liability for performance for TWO YEARS *****il Sep 2018).

This means they not only have no revenue risk - they don't even have any performance obligations they have to keep to."

What's up with them? Are they voiced by a Geordie, or something?

I'm sure I heard high level and low level announcements being played simultaneously at LBG the other day.

DfT have been enabling Southern to break unions. They’ve taken away all risk so they can go to war with their staff.

ABC do a fantastic job... I threw a few £ their way to cover legal costs.

Is it just a coincidence that the 7.43 from Upper Warlingham to LBG has been 9 coaches rather than 12 for the last three mornings or is this going to become the new normal?
