    Hi

    I'm currently at Startford Parkway and I'm slightly confused as to why there seem like relatively fewer trains than last time I was around here... I could have sworn that there were 2 trains an hour to Stratford via Whitlocks End. Then, in the previous timetable change the trains from Dorridge were extended. Did I get that totally wrong? Was it actually the trains via Dorridge that were intended to provide 2tph? I'm aware it's Saturday, but the weekday TT looks the same! Or is the signalling around here still running in a longer term degraded mode due to the significant problems with it not so long ago. There have been quite some delays this afternoon.

    Many thanks!

    The Dorridge services were to make the service 2tph, before they were extended it was 1tph via Whitlock's End.

    In a sense you're both correct.
    Coinciding with the opening of Stratford Parkway in May 13, one of the Whitlocks End terminators was extended to Stratford on Saturdays only. Then in December 13, one of the Dorridge terminators was extended to Stratford on Mondays to Saturdays and the extended Whitlocks end train cut back again to Whitlocks End.
