I hate that. Does it on TheTrainLine too. Get a train at 00:30... Arrive 05:46 in the morning on a 17 minute journey from Selhurst to Sutton.

So I was probably right then, Bridge is poorly serviced after about 10.30pm - even on a Friday.

Not really. There's those trains mentioned and there's 23:30, 00:03 and 00:33 to Norwood Jct. Then there's the 23:36 to Caterham and the 00:08. Quite a few trains I know of without the ones I don't know about.

I've never had a problem from London Bridge at night until recently when they're doing work.

I'm in a fortunate position that the N68 stops at the bottom of my road so I just need to get to Waterloo and I'm ok.

I know it's very upsetting and whoever felt like doing that must have been in an awful state but could really have done without this hassle tonight.

God knows who is training the new Platform staff at London Bridge. Twice yesterday I left late because platform hadn't TRTS'd (train ready to start) the Signaller to let him know I was ready to go. One resulted in my return journey being cancelled completely.

Driver didn't even know about it. He was taken into the depot and told about it. Apparently the guy knelt down on the platform as the train was pulling out and stuck his head between the train and platform.

Jesus christ that's grim

Do you think it would have been better for the driver not to know? There was nothing he could have done and I'm sure the guilt and stress he probably feels will last a long time.

Not having a pop at Southern for once, just keen to hear what people think.

Anyway, I had an interview this morning at London Bridge so got an earlier train expecting delays. Of course it got on time and I was 45 minutes early.

Whilst I agree that ignorance is bliss, a driver would find out, also he may be required to attend a inquest or be interviewed by btp.

I'm aware drivers are given six(?) months off and therapy if something like this happens but what are the details of that? What type of therapy is it, is there a specific organisation which provides it?

They certainly should be allowed some time off and definitely access to support.
