Not a clue. Perhaps stock not in the right place at the right time but I don't sign EG so have no idea if they ever split or attach anywhere in service.

Is Sutton Station open today? Nothing was running through there last night as it was pitch black.

It appears that 14 hours after last nights problems they're still prevalent now.

Wait until January when the main line is taken away and every train goes up and down Bricklayers Arms Junction. That'll be fun!

Sutton station was a electric cable cut by contractors. I worked at Sutton around 12 years ago and when we had that happened we had loads of emergency lighting on charge for such problems. Given that was so long ago I did think it was bizzare that they don't have that know unless the dreaded "health and safety" means we all are more stupid now and don't understand that it's darker so must be more careful. Yesterday they had signal problems in Selhurst Depot which may explain the short formations this morning but that is just a guess. As for London Bridge its a pigging nightmare. Only another 4 years to go.......................................

I had to ask the signaller to stop at Sutton last night as I had been given three massive emergency lights to drop there and yet was told not to stop there.

London Bridge is a accident waiting to happen. With the delays, particularly in the evening, you have over 1000 people waiting to board each 12 carriage train and a few hundred getting off -the platforms are about 8 foot wide.

Getting off in the morning with an 8 foot gap at one end of the platform and no other exit is a nightmare. Particularly when you need to change at London Bridge to head on to Charing Cross/Canon St.

I've been saying this for a while. How platform 12 is allowed to still be used is unbelievable.

I got stuck walking behind the make up lady on the way off the train. She's even more annoying when she's walking. Swinging her bag about and kept stopping.

Sometimes you have to trust people to be a bit sensible.

London Bridge is horrendous at the moment are we in any danger I them getting rid of the boards soon so can walk normally to the platform and not take 10 minutes getting off them? Also what's the deal with closing the entrance via the underground some nights? Yeah let's close the entrance and make people walk to an escalator outside while its pissing down on a slippery floor... Genius, then to go through that weird queue system like sheep.

Things have started going tits up on the Tulse Hill line too, which generally used to be ok. They have taken to disabling the information signs on the platform at times too, presumably so people don't know/get annoyed at quite how late their train is going to be.

I reckon they do this so that they do not get even worse congestion on the narrow platforms which i suppose is understandable.

i saw two ladies almost get into a fight yesterday one pushed past the other saying she was going to be late only to be then held up by a solid wall of people trying to leave the platform. She swore to hide her embaressment when she ended up side by side with the person she pushed past.

People just need to chill and not rush as it aint going to change any time soon.

they close the underground entrance when the platforms get too full so they can try and control flow through the station better (of course its a matter of opinion if this actually works)

The point is, that we shouldn't have to accept taking 15 minutes to get off a platform in the mornings!

Yes, people need to act sensibly, which they do, but if it's 8:24 and the boards are showing the train is leaving at 8:25 you have people pushing one way to get on the train and everyone trying to get off because the platform because the train is inevitably 10 minutes late.

People who do the commute regularly are fine, it is those who don't do it often who are most likely to be seen trying to push through.
