The official word: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/service_disruptions/sa65046c076943eb8cbac00412600528/details.html
No London Midland or Virgin Trains services are currently arriving at or leaving from London Euston"
Hopefully the clear up will be done within a couple of hours or maybe some lines re-opened to allow some movement. Always seems to be a Friday!!
Sad to hear :cry:
Also does anyone know how many people this year been struck by a Train? it's just a wonder as this is becomming common, i hear on average that 3 people get hit by train everyday
I know January it worked out to 1 daily, hasnt been as many since then though. I really dont think its on average 3 a day though.
Currently on the delayed 17:04 from stockport to euston. Just crawled through rugby 2 mins ago. Must give credit to the stockport station staff and this train crew. Smiling through the disruption and being very helpful.
Was due to get the 17:23 with the dinner service (I always book first class on a friday!) But have ended up with light bites.. Not complaining though as the TM thinks we will arrive into Euston about 19:30.
Also saw Grand Central 43467 at crewe. What on earth was it doing there??
Something like 220 / 230 a year.
Whatever the reason for each fatality over 200 a year is a huge amount and that is a large number of drivers and train crew affected.
A lot of the drivers can't work again after this sort of horrendous incident i can't begin to imagine how traumatic it must be.
Not sure how true it is, but anecdotally some european railways exclude such events from their performance stats.
