Something has gone wrong in the Kings Cross area, nothing seems to be moving anywhere, par for the course unfortunately on Sundays this year.:|

BBC said:

King's Cross trains resume after power supply problems

King's Cross station has reopened after a power supply problem stopped all trains coming in and out of the central London terminal.

East Coast, First Capital Connect, First Hull Trains and Grand Central and now running but are subject to delays.

Network Rail said it would take some time for services to get back to normal and advised passengers to use alternative routes if possible.

London underground services were unaffected.

Routes affected by the delays included the East Coast main line expresses from Edinburgh, Newcastle, York, Sunderland, Leeds, Doncaster and Grantham to London, as well as suburban services from Peterborough via Huntingdon, Hitchin and Stevenage and via the Hertford loop.

The Javelin services to Stratford International for the Olympic Park run from the neighbouring St Pancras station were not affected.

Big problems this afternoon at Kings Cross, with all services in and out suspended due to a power problem (and shown on NRE as a signalling problem so i would assume the signals have lost power).

Ticket acceptance is via Virgin and Cross Country at the moment.

While looking on National Rail Enquiries, under the service disruptions it states:

Grand Central passengers may use:

Grater Anglia between London Liverpool Street / Stratford and Cambridge

...what? :|

did it really say "Grater" Anglia? Crikey. I'd assume though the intended route would be Liverpool Street-Cambridge-Ely-Peterborough-York (on "any permitted" London-North tickets this is a permitted route anyway)

Hull Trains & GC have diverted to start/terminate at Cambridge (or at Peterborough) in the past when there was a blockage/engineering works south of Peterborough on the ECML - did this happen yesterday?

oh, thinking about it, it might have been in the wrong section, and that it was meant to say "FCC passengers may use:"
