VT punctuality performance was down to 77.5% for the last month (p8, 16 Oct-12 Nov). NR gives plenty of reasons/excuses worthy of Reginald Perrin, but in all seriousness this must be very worrying for NR and VT. It's three years since the £8b WCRM was completed and the route is still in deep trouble. It was not even a month when they could blame the weather. NR talks about throwing £20m at the problems, mostly at "small renewals to remove some speed restrictions". Anybody know what they are? How will they prevent dewirement/signalling problems? http://www.networkrailmediacentre.c...PERIOD-8-IS-89-3-193a/SearchCategoryID-2.aspx Nothing on the VT web site of course. They are not good at explaining service failures.
