Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

to be completely fair that disruption was apparently due to a fire a Moorgate and not really related to the poorly managed migration to the new timetable.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Just realised that the MOG-HFN trains on the new timetable don’t stop at Bowes Park. There is an HOUR between them. The last one is at 16:40 and then then next one is 17:40. I was advised by station staff to buy a split ticket (and save about £500). This is such a farce. Our train service is awful....

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

So are we to expect that there will be no more failed trains at Drayton Park after these are introduced? Solving that problem should've been at the very top of the train operators requirements for the manufacturer.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

So not addressing the issue at all. Journey times have not increased on the Hertford loop because timetables have changed to reflect reality, they've increased because they've added more stops to the journeys. It's bare faced cheek that they're not even able to admit that they've altered the service...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

It seems like the proposed rail replacement between Watton and Stevenage drew attention away from the fact that they were getting rid of all the fastest journeys on the Hertford Loop.

Re: Great Northern-Thameslink Pay As You Go

If I have a season ticket, say Hertford North to London Terminals, on 'The Key' and then one day I travel on a different route, say Hatfield to Kings Cross, using KeyGo will it apply an appropriate Gold Card discount to that fare do you think?

The journey often feels quite long enough if one has stopped for a pint or two after work!!

I heard that there won't be any toilets and that although there's increased capacity there are actually fewer seats than on the existing trains. I hope that I've been misinformed though.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Are they all slow stopping services now? They all seem 51/52 minutes. I sometimes get the 6.45 and sometimes the 6.57 but the difference between the time it takes is noticeable as the 6.57 stops at every station (and sometimes makes up a few new ones :D ) whereas these are all similar times.
