as our members become less satisfied, our posts increase and as satisfaction increases, so posts decrease.

I work in IT, and that has always been a 'no news is good news' kind of industry.

I saw some muppet at my local station last week who had the back wheel of his bike hanging over the platform edge so he could rest the pedal on the platform edge and straighten his handlebars with his back to the track.

2nd update:

Due to a fault with the signalling system between Slough and London Paddington some lines are blocked.
Impact:
Train services running to and from these stations may be cancelled, delayed by up to 30 minutes or revised. Ealing Broadway will not be served. Disruption is expected until 14:00 17/07.
Customer Advice:
Following repairs to the initial fault with signalling cables, a second unrelated fault has now occurred in the area meaning 2 of the 4 tracks are affected.
Thames Valley stopping services will be revised in both directions.
Passengers wishing to travel from Slough, Reading and stations further west to Ealing Broadway should travel to London Paddington and circulate for stopping services to Ealing Broadway.
London Underground are conveying passengers between Ealing Broadway and London Paddington in both directions until further notice. Arrangements have been made for Great Western Railway rail tickets to be accepted for these journeys.

Following a recent refit of the station floor with some nasty looking lino the through door onto the platform is now boarded over and painted to match the walls. So much for that then.

Basingstoke <-> Reading can barely keep to the current peak timetable as it is, trains are often dropped out because the inbound slips until it's easier to skip one.

Edit: yup 2J53 canned due to inbound 2J50 20 mins late. Now the next service will be overloaded in this heat.
