Connex Code Broken!

After my experiences this morning I think I can confidently say I’ve broken Connex’s secret code – see what they really mean when their website says:

All services are running normally.

is this:

  • No overhead power working for trains
  • No trackside power for the signalling system
  • Trains replaced by buses
  • Not enough qualified running staff at the station where the buses terminate to drive the train that’s waiting to take people to the city

Silly me, there was I thinking it meant that I could get into work in just one hour, rather than two..
