From The BBC

Quote
Trains in Britain missed scheduled stops at stations on average 160 times a day, the BBC has learned.

More than 52,500 services out of a planned six million had one or more "failure to stop" (FTS) events in the financial year up to 23 February.

Govia Thameslink (GTR) - which runs Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern - accounted for 16,000 of those. A spokesman said skipping stops was a "last resort when a train running late would otherwise prolong disruption".

[snip]

The best performing operators were Heathrow Express, Chiltern, and Virgin Trains East Coast, with, on average, less than one in every 1,000 of their trains failing to stop over the same period.


I can't possibly guess why Heathrow Express might have a good record on this  Grin
