Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

On the train in to work yesterday one of the new trains passed me going North and pulling about eight or ten freight trucks. I don't know how long the passenger part was, as I looked up as it passed so only caught the last carriage, and then all the freight trucks. It was a shorter formation then th...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Friday was awful. Person on the wires at Kings Cross, failed train at Moorgate and so I switched to Liverpool St and then that went down with signal failures. Both lines went down.

Not a fun time had by anyone

Re: Waiting at Hertford North

I looked at website too and couldn't see anything. On the board it said something about waiting places, I forget the exact workind, but it was something like "If there are waiting places, you could use these for 5 minutes". But we couldn't see any, the board could have been a standard board with sta...

Waiting at Hertford North

Every now and then, maybe twice a month, my partner picks me up from Hertford North. He always parked in the car park to avoid the chaos on the forecourt but no he noticed that there are ANPR cameras enforcing payments. Whilst I agree with this in principle, he couldn't find out about waiting times ...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

GTR have said that they will introduce an interim timetable on 15 July. This, allegedly, is one that they say they will be able to run with far fewer issues than the current timetable. Playing devil's advocate, what if this timetable turns out to be something like a weekend timetable where there ar...

Re: Simon Balle All through school Ofsted report

I agree. Whilst my son attended RHS, I have only ever heard good things about Simon Balle. I have never heard bad things about it whilst I have heard some people not liking RHS.

Re: Exiting Hertford North nicely

Apparently they are changing the doors that exit the station which will be good as they are a real bottleneck. They will be sliding doors which should help. I do understand about the phones. I almost always wait on platform til everyone has gone as I hate the crowds, and I get to say hello to Paul, ...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

It would seem that their weeks of tweeting about us planning our journeys in advance fell on their own deaf ears.

To be fair, I worked from home yesterday so didn't get involved in the chaos and it was ok this morning. Left HFN and arrived at MOG as timetabled.
