  • Is it to do with the flooding on lots of the railway lines? Lots of lines closed but not sure if this one is.

    Flooding is affecting a number of routes in Wales, the Midlands and North of England

    Train companies affected: CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway, LNER, London Northwestern Railway, Merseyrail, Northern, TransPennine Express, Transport for Wales, Virgin Trains,

  • Ridiculous scenario. Got shoved on a train to moor Street from the hawthorns. Not allowed to leave Moor Street on arrival. No communication from anyone. Asked a copper what is going on. Was told I had to get on a train to Marylebone. Told him I can't, I'm booked on Virgin train from New Street. He tells me that the train from here goes to London. I said but my train is booked from New Street and it is with Virgin trains. He then sees I'm with 2 kids and so I think decides I can leave via the lift on the quiet. Meanwhile people downstairs left on platform. One bloke lost the plot and then got man handled a bit. No idea why it was happening to be honest, but we seem to luckily have got out of it and now at New Street. Pity the poor buggers still stuck there. 
  • A bit of a shambles really. Not allowing people off at Snow Hill unless they were locals, leading to several minutes of arguments. Then a scrum at Moor Street with all the Charlton fans going one way when the exit at the back was completely empty.

    Cataddick. If you have a sick wife at home you shouldn't have gone to West brom in the first place you muppet 
    I know what you’re saying but she said it was ok to go cos I was on a booked train with a known arrival time.  Absolutely shocking policing
  • What happened at HT with our lot kicking off with the stewards and old bill?

    That's why my son missed the game, got as far as Macclesfield from our local station and no further. He was gutted

  • Little bit of advice @timken the wise approach is never to comment on people’s personal situations unless invited to. 

    Hope me all ok with you and your wife @CatAddick
