Daily Echo: Train passengers facing major rush hour delays Train passengers facing major rush hour delays

TRAIN passengers face delays of up to half an hour this morning due to a signalling problem in Southampton.

The disruption is affecting services between Southampton Central and Brighton, and Southampton Central and Horsham due to the issue at St Denys.

Daily Echo:

National Rail says commuters face delays of up to 30 minutes and cancellations can be expected.

It is affecting First Great Western, Southern, and South West Trains services, but passengers can use each operators' service via any reasonable route.

Daily Echo: Less that half of travellers satisfied with South West Trains

Southern services will terminate either at Chichester or Fareham until further notice.

Train services running between Southampton Central and Fareham will run at a reduced speed on all lines.

Services running from Portsmouth Harbour to Bristol Temple Meads and Cardiff Central will be diverted via Eastleigh.

There is no estimate for when normal service will resume.

Where are all the people on here saying there should be "contingency" and a "second signalling system alongside the first" just in case the first one causes delays? No? But hang on... you all said that about the recent air traffic control story (not because safety was compromised, because it wasn't, but simply because of the delays) so why are the trains different?

Oh, could it be because there is no bandwaggon rolling along on this story for you to all jump on?!
