    Hi all,

    Anyone know what the problem was this morning between Moorgate and Drayton Park.

    FCC reporting Poor Rail Conditions at Essex Road.

    Departure boards also suggest that poor railhead conditions were the reason for the cancellations.

    The TRUST report suggests an overenthusiastic rail greaser at Essex Road which has subsequently been turned down, with sand applied at Old Street and Essex Road.

    Cheers,

    Barry

    That's reassuring.

    If it had been due to leaves or snow we'd have had real problems... :D
