My train home was 4+4. Then for about the first week of extended trains it was 5+5. Since then it's been 6+4. The trouble is the onboard messages are still set up for 4+4, so a fair amount of people in coaches 5 or 6 think they are going to Tattenham - but they aren't.

Got home to 36 of Delay Repay vouchers for a few delayed trains at the start of the year. Decent.

Might be worth mentioning to Southern. Not sure I have seen that but the older 377s are still probably running an old setting (no idea how long it would take to update a fleet of trains).

Never split a 3+3 train so not sure how it works. They usually run as six cars and if tens can't get split often that's for sure.

Mine was delayed yesterday morning on the Tattenham corner line due to the last driver to park their train at Tattenham blocked all the others in.

Signalling problems at Selhurst, network rail's fault I think? They're just as inept mind you, spent all that money and so many signal failures or 'electrical supply problems' already this year.

Or Notwork Fail as they are often referred to. They are going to be busy in quite a few places for a while now though. The tocs will still bear the brunt of the customers anger, despite none of the infrastructure problems being their fault.

Network Rail have got rid of a lot of P-way staff, it's not going to be a quick fix. Bad times ahead.

Took me an hour to get from Gipsy Hill to Clapham Junction this morning. Glad I only make that journey once every month.
I've been happily getting the 8.01 to Epsom in the mornings recently and its only ever been a few minutes late. Its not a very frequent service and I know that my time is due for it to be massively delayed/cancelled.

I reckon Southern were expecting a snow day or two in January and February and hence gave everyone a load of holiday or something.
