This was extracted from the "London Underground" part of the GWR Journeycheck site this afternoon.

Quote
Severe delays between Paddington and Heathrow Airport due to a trespasser on the track in the Hanwell area. GOOD SERVICE between Liverpool Street and Shenfield. London Underground are accepting their tickets.

I'm sure this forum could come up with one correct answer and several humorous versions for the meaning of the final sentence.

If it's any help, the same data feed says we are fixing a signal failure at Aldgate.

I suspect an internal message from which parts were cut and pasted ... ah, the fun of information systems that have to be fed quickly during a developing incident but then can be analysed to the "nth" degree later.    "Us" and "them" perhaps TfL and GWR??  Or even Tfl Rail and TfL underground!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
