Hornby railways strikes again...

Chaos to start the week at Peterborough Rail Station. I've been here nearly an hour and no sign of any mainline service south to London "due to over-running engineering works in the Hitchin area".

Doubly annoyed to see professionally printed giant notices at the barrier warning of severe delays znd cancellations this morning.

If they can get notices printed, surely they could get an announcement on BBC Cambridgeshire's news bulletins earlier to warn the thousands who commute from Peterborough to London to make other arrangements and avoid a long cold frustrating wait.

Eventually, a First Capital Connect train arrives which seems to be stoping at every lamp-post between here and Kings Cross. Staff tell me there's a fast East Coast train five minutes later, so stupidly believe them.

Another half an hour has gone by and still no sign of a mainline train.

Hornby was better organised than this!
