Chaos on East Coast Line...

Given up trying to get to a Newcastle today by train from Peterborough.

"Lines down at Huntingdon" caused total chaos, stopping all trains on the East Coast Main Line this morning.

GNER are now talking about trying to start moving trains out of Kings Cross after lunch.

But my colleague stuck in London tells me there's no trains on any Kings Cross platform, so it doesn't look promising.

He's waiting another few minutes until 12-noon and if there's no sign of a train by then, he'll give up on his trip north.

Must be difficult for the train operators when these things happen, but as usual, lack of adequate information for would-be passengers adds to the frustration.
