Haha, sounds like a normal day with Northern to me.
They're ALWAYS delayed when I get their trains.
I'll wait half an hour at a station to get another TOC rather than Northern.

Typical British Rail, sounds just like the ticketing system on the network as well *grrrr*

Let's be fair to Northern here (not aimed at Ben - I see that you've acknowledged Northern's efforts!) - out of all the 'problems', all but one of them are completely out of their control, and the one remaining one probably wasn't their fault!

Yep, sorry Ben - I realised that! Seemed to be a bit of an anti-Northern rant following though ;).
