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 are...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

They excelled themselves today. The 0832 Hertford North to Moorgate service wasn't showing at all on their app. Along with at least two other commuters I asked on twitter what had happened to it. The response was that it wasn't running today and the service had been taken off the app to avoid confus...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

If you're on twitter, can thoroughly recommend following @garius who explains why the problems on the trains have come about. He's written a fantastic explanation on the issue of drivers - employing, training, poaching. One route that has been introduced requires FIVE different drivers at the moment!

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

It seems that someone at GN Rail has come up with a cunning plan to reduce the time that their twitter team spend answering questions. They have devised a standard response. This has been tweeted as a reply several times this morning: "We have cancelled the services we know are not able to be run to...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Not for all of us. Going to work via Hertford East would take 40 minutes longer and cost £6 more per day than via Hertford North for me.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Holy Moly! They are anticipating disruption, due to phasing in of services, until 8 June! The Hertford Loop isn't specifically listed but we've seen wholesale disruption today so it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that we will be affected. http://m.nationalrail.co.uk/pj/disruption/details/984...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

First day of the new timetable. 0942 Hertford North to Moorgate running on time ✔ 1012 Hertford North to Moorgate cancelled - oh dear 1042 Hertford North to Moorgate cancelled - uh oh. Still too early for any info on the 1112. Not sure what the cause of the cancellations. Rumour is that some drivers...
