Southern Train Shambles

Postby roy » Tue Jul 05, 2016 10:23 pm

I have to say that this company is not fit for purpose,the latest scam is to reduce the amount of trains in the hope they dont have to pay out as much compo after the way the service has shafted the public,because lets be honest this is what this latest development is all about.
Many of my friends and work colleagues are having a really bad time due to the mess that is southern trains,I truly feel sorry for them and thank my lucky stars I have a car.

Roy - I have to agree!

Signalling disruption today meant delays and staff not available to run the trains anyway as they were caught on other trains, affected by the signalling, adding to the misery.
Southern Trains are being 'pulled' on Tues, Wed this week, by the RMT Unions and our own local, Southern Eastern Trains ( a sister organisation) are probably not going to run either.

I have been doing a lot of 'delay repay' claims online lately and they even manage to botch those, Grrr!!

Yeh Richard its not good at all,there seems to be no end in sight for the poor sods who have to use the service,I believe they have been to acas but to no avail,not sure what the way forward is now.
