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.
Well that told me. 20 minutes late I got on the train. Disappeared and reappeared twice from the board for about 5 minutes with no explanation or announcements. Nearly got on some other train to try and connect somewhere else. I hate these utter utter bastards

I was late for my train this morning. My train was two minutes later than me! Thank you Southern!

The train before mine was cancelled this morning so when my one arrived it was absolutely rammed, worse than the tube, people couldn't get on and then the usual 5-10 minutes just sat in South Croydon waiting to get into Eastside.

What the hell has happened to the service since October? It can't purely be down to the weather.

Yup, it's really pathetic ATM.

I expect delays due to the weather and flooding - it's a fact of life. It feels like every couple of days trains are breaking down and causing havoc. Hopefully southern will lose their contract due to clearly not keeping their trains in a fit condition to travel in.

Yes because these things are so easy to predict. Ever had an appliance break down at home? Why didn't you get it fixed before it happened?

Domestic appliances are designed and priced to run until they fail and are replaced.

Trains are designed to be monitored and preventatively maintained.

You know, the train companies and staff might get a bit more sympathy from the customers if once in a while, when shit happens, they hold their hands up and admit it's because of bad management and incompetence rather than making excuses and blaming others.

Or maybe people should understand maybe there are circumstances which are beyond their control which cannot be foreseen.

So if your car breaks down is it your fault because you haven't had it fixed before it happens?

I dunno if there is a statistic to back this up, but we run a lot of diesel trains up here, which arent reliant on an electrical supply and so can often run to time, even if an engine cuts out. We have electric trains on other lines as well, but when a train brings the wires down or there is a fault with the supply, the diesels can get people close to where they need to go. Obviously they arent as environmentally friendly though, going through queen street tunnel is like smoking 20 fags in 2 minutes It doesnt take much for the whole thing to grind to a halt down there though, especially due to the sheer volume of services.
