Issues with the Hertford Loop debated in Parliament

Mark Prisk was one of a number of MPs that brought to the attention of the transport minister the poor service that we have been experiencing of late.

Re: 16 Jan morning rush hour delays caused by...

And then you get this:

17:18 Moorgate to Stevenage due 18:14
More info
This train will be started from Finsbury Park.
This train will no longer call at Moorgate, Old Street, Essex Road, Highbury & Islington and Drayton Park.
This is due to overhead wire problems

I bet they don't see the irony.

16 Jan morning rush hour delays caused by...

...absolutely no problems on the Hertford Loop.

Overhead line problems at Welwyn Garden City resulted in 4 out of 6 trains between 0750 and 0850 being cancelled on.

The logic behind this has me baffled.

Next thing we need is to have the option to have our online accounts credited rather than have old-fashioned bits of of paper posted to us.

Re: Hertford North Disruption

They compensated me for 23 December but I'm really oeeved that they knocked me back for 12 December as it was the first time I've ever claimed and they made out that I was lying.

Re: Hertford North Disruption

Has anyone successfully claimed delay repay compensation for the 12th? Like bubbaoshea I followed FCC's advice to travel via Hertford East. I had intended to catch the 07:25 from Hertford North and ended up getting the 07:57 from Hertford East. With a longer running time into Liverpool Street this m...

First Capital Connect says you can do it but doesn't explain how.
