    Seen a few Twitter entries from the last hour about issues at St Pancras. Everything was fine at 22:30, and there's nothing on NRE. Any ideas, anyone?

    Hello all. First post blah blah etc.

    Nothing on nat rail especially would suggest nothing 'major' as far as the industry is concerned. ie. perhaps a couple of cancellations close to each other for entirely unrelated reasons.

    Just a suggestion, mind.

    One of the tweeters seems to think he's at Kings Cross. Perhaps he is, but I can't imagine that there are problems there too!

    The FCC website does say that the 2248 from St Pancras is/was delayed by 10 minutes due to congestion caused by earlier delays. The "Cleared disruptions" section of the National Rail website clears itself at midnight, so if a disruption notice was posted around 2200 (say) and cleared before midnight, there would be no trace of it on Nat Rail now.

    2310 arrival showing as on time until St Pancras, then 155 mins overdue when I checked.

    I know there were some issues at Foxton on the GN last night, which would explain the KX tweet.
    23:10 in to STP would be the 23:18 out, which would time with the tweets but the next one is 23:32 which isn't exactly a long time to wait (although that's a semi-fast, whereas the :18 is a stopper...).
    But seriously, ONE train? They're getting shorter- and shorter-tempered, these FCC types :D
