First published in News

Lightning has struck a signal in Billericay, shutting down rail services to and from Southend.

Greater Anglia has currently blocked lines in both directions on the Southend line due to signal failure, with engineers en route.

C2C is unable to take tickets due to flooding hampering their own systems on their line.

The service today was appalling prior to this. Stratford has to be the most un passenger friendly station in the country!

Got to be the first time anyone has used the adjective 'lightning' about the Billericay to Liverpool St trains. Unless it's how lightning fast the fares increase...

I did my 20 years of commuting to that thar Lunnon and I'm glad these days I drive going the other way. Buying and running a small car over several years works out marginally cheaper than annual season tickets. Cept instead of a pile of expired tickets at the end you had the use of a decent car and the total flexibility that brings. Vive le Hybrid!
