Railway Magazine  |  September 2018  

IT’S been another summer of discontent for rail passengers.

Strikes because of industrial disputes over driver-only operation are still affecting four train operators.

Timetables remain in a mess on several routes, with passengers having to wait up to an hour for a through train to their destination.

Electrification projects still lag behind schedule.

Cancellations because of a lack of train-rostered crews or lack of route knowledge remain all too common.

Passengers are also suffering from late notification of engineering work – sometimes giving less than 24 hours notice that their journey will be diverted or disrupted.

The closure of London Euston for three consecutive weekends had a knock-on effect. With no congestion-busting 15-car ‘Voyager' trains from Birmingham New Street, passengers were forced to walk from New Street to Moor Street station to catch alternative services to London.

A lineside fire closed the Midland Main Line for six hours on August 19, curtailing services to St Pancras - a situation compounded as LNER was at full capacity handling extra passengers as a result of the Euston closure, so could not accept those displaced from East Midlands Trains.

Insular nature

Rustling up replacement coaches is proving more difficult, and other than the occasional diversion via Lincoln and Sleaford or Ely and Cambridge, when there is an incident on the East Coast Main Line, the insular nature of each train operator means drivers' route knowledge over many diversionary routes – such as the Settle-Carlisle, when the West Coast Main Line is closed between Preston and Carlisle – has tended to lapse; but I fully understand why.

Keeping route knowledge up-to-date is a costly, time-consuming process and train operators see rail replacement buses as the cheapest option...

Since 1897, The Railway Magazine has always provided interesting and informative updates on all the new train developments including networks, technology advancements, worldwide news, and engines in production. In every issue, you can look forward to modern and relevant news on relatable issues such as strikes, derailments, passenger service and facility upgrades that are happening across the nation.

More of a history buff? Don't worry we’ve got you covered! The Railway Magazine contains a plethora of articles on all kinds of classic, vintage, and heritage trains.
