Similarly, signallers go through an intensive and continuous training programme and are continually assessed and performance scrutinised. Yes, mistakes can happen but what appears simple on the ground is much more complex when controlling an entire network and its performance.

That's ok, and I understand your feelings and frustrations. But no one ever tries to intentionally give out false or misleading info. Often incidents are fast paced and delays can have multiple reasons from the same incident so it may appear confusing, but it's never intentional

Ok, thanks for your reply. As i mentioned, I have been a signaller and a signalling manager so if you don't wish to believe my statements there is little more I can do- not sure why I would 'lie'. I can again offer to talk it through with you, but otherwise have a good evening 😊

πŸ“·Here's the southern abutment at railway bridge in 1975 vs how it looks today. Carrying the insignia of the London, Chatham & Dover railway, it was restored in 1990. Blackfriars station itself re-opened after a major redevelopment in 2012

The intricacies of the signalling and safety systems and interlocking and the balance of managing a whole network rather than individual trains mean it is rarely as simple as you state- which is why it is easier to try and explain in person.

As a signaller and ex signaller manager, I can assure you that every delay caused by signallers ('O codes') are thoroughly investigated, and such delays account for a tiny % of overall delays. As I said before, happy to discuss this with you if you want more detail.

As I said, I'm happy to try and explain as no signaller would deliberately hold a train if it's path was available. Depending on where stopped, departures from 4-6 can also impact. I'm not sure if present at CHX, but some signals are also approach controlled so trains must stop

Hello Delayed. There are many reasons as to why a signaller may hold services outside the station- departing services, crossing services in front etc to regulate for the overall benefit of the network. Happy to explain all this in person at the station as an ex signaller!

Hi- we do have free water fountains at the station. We have looked at showers, but sadly there isn't the space available to do so.

The railway is full of hidden dangers. Last night a male crossed over the tracks at He was educated by our officers on the dangers of this behaviour. He was reported to court. Please, never take the risk

Hi. Once past a certain point it's not possible to access all platforms- the decision is made back close to WAE. Also, to switch from one side to the other would block the whole station, so whilst your train may be delayed waiting it is usually best to route into allocated plt
