A. Lots of delay minutes.

That is all.

Clog Rail's ambitious plans for PPM

Good to see that Abellio is on top of all this timekeeping stuff.

This screen grab from their Greater Anglia website taken at 12:10 today:

By Eye's reckoning the start of the franchise is now a mere five days away, give or take a couple of hours..

Abolition of Railway Heritage Committee - latest

Those who care about our railway's heritage may be interested in this DfT consultation document, published with little fanfare.
