The crossover between LUL and Chiltern (signalling) failed earlier this morning.
Yes but if the tunnel opened early, why are there still no through services at all? I wonder if Bob Crowe had a word.

Gerrards Cross is re-opening tomorrow.

They are resignalling all of it and the track is being replaced, etc., so it was perfectly feasible to operate... but obviously it hadn't passed HSE yet.

Still going to be a Tesco in the town?

Still seems a stupid idea to build a Tesco above the mainline...Would be a good place to spot and take photos, you wouldn't have far to go for supplies!

Well they hope to have the line open tomorrow, at least thats whats they are saying on BBC News. You have to ask the question, would you feel safe travelling under that tunnel again?

I don't think you'd be spotting for long though - there's not much variation on traffic is there now?

There were a group of large blokes from the RMT seen eating a very large breakfast in Morrisons this morning, then afterwards storming up to the Chiltern HQ. They mean business! :P
