Re: Local News Pilot

I've added it to my bookmarks and will check regularly. Best of luck with it.

The Mercury's website now seems to be 80% reporting on accidents on the A1 & M1, 10% reporting on stabbings in Enfield and 10% news on Hertfordshire news.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Why aren’t class 717 carriages being used on the loop? They have been advertised, yet in truth we are only getting refurbished 313s. Yours sincerely, Mark Prisk MP Where did this information come from? My understanding is that there are brand new units being manufactured, some of which have already...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

You won't get a reply from Mark Prisk on twitter, it's all one way traffic. And he seems to have claimed some sort of part in the Stevenage to Hertford North line not closing when it was supposed to, despite it having nothing to do with his actions. He's not a big enough cheese to have any influence.

Re: Great Northern-Thameslink Pay As You Go

I don't travel all the way into London so carnet is not an option for me. I'm giving the KeyGo a go tomorrow so I'll report back on how it went. I have asked a question as to what they would charge me if I travelled from Hertford North to Bowes Park in the morning and then from Kings Cross to Hertfo...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

The new timetable actually has one more service between 6.00am and 10.00am than the current timetable.

Great Northern-Thameslink Pay As You Go

Govia have finally got round to adding a pay as you go function to their Key smart card. It's called KeyGo. Very handy if you don't go into London every day.

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

I saw a tweet a week or so ago that showed one of the units being tested so, hopefully, they'll start introducing them soon. This link (pdf) says that they have "modern toilet facilities." Whether or not you'll be able to get to them in the rush hour is another thing! http://www.siemens.co...

Hertford Mercury website

Has the Mercury website gone the same way as it's paper version, i.e. weekly?

The latest story is about a crash on the M25 at Waltham Abbey on 29 November - 6 days ago.

The twitter account is also very quiet as well.
