Re: Transforming Rail consultation (Hertford North)

That's a massive issue and a further example of how users of the Hertford loop pay the price for improvements to services on the main line.

As someone who regularly drags themselves out of bed in time to catch the 06:24, those few extra minutes seem particularly precious!

Re: Transforming Rail consultation (Hertford North)

I guess it depends when you're travelling. As far as I can see all but one of the existing fastest journeys departing Hertford North between 6am and 8:30am will have increased journey times on the new timetable. This seems to be because Hertford passengers are paying the price of stopping at Harring...

Re: The Key at Herford North

I went to renew my season ticket at Hertford North yesterday. The assistant at the ticket office on this occasion advised me that I'd need to have it as a paper ticket if I wanted to use it to travel Hertford East and London. I wonder whether GTR will ever provide clear and consistent information on...

Re: The End of Pay & Display

What a wasted opportunity. Why couldn't they have introduced a proper ANPR system like in WGC?

Re: GA Season Ticket woes

A couple of years ago I lost a season ticket (for the Hertford North line under FCC), which I'd bought online and had loads of trouble getting a replacement season ticket. In the end it got sorted out only when I emailed the Chief Exec of FCC directly, it then got sorted pretty quickly.

Re: The Key at Herford North

I got a reply from my renewed query today: Thank you for contacting us on 13th April 2016 in regards to the expansion of the Key smartcard travel area. On 3rd March, Abellio Greater Anglia railway launched their own smartcard product, and an reciprocal agreement was reached to make their smartcard a...

I'd certainly welcome somewhere with a decent selection of craft beers.

Re: The Key at Herford North

Has anyone used this from Hertford East? Great Northern responded to my query back in November simply saying that it wasn't possible (and completely ignoring my question about whether they were talking to Abellio about the possibility of enabling this). Yesterday I went to buy a new ticket and the l...
