Sky News & Metro.
So, don't feel too bad if you get lost whilst driving, it happens to trains too!
Seems to indicate a fault by two differing members of staff, a signaller then later a driver? If so, seems odd it got past two members of staff!Badger wrote: Whoops, wrong route offered and taken.

Remember I work in Northern's Control and the last few weeks have been absolute s***.Redirect Left wrote:In light of the continuing disasterous service, Northern have revised their timetable, cutting about 6% of their daily services until the end of July. These are mostly in the Manchester, Lancashire & Merseyside areas.
I wonder if any other companies will be forced to do the same - are they due a spurt of stock or extra staff at the end of July? as these changes are in effect until 1st August.
I feel for you guys. Hat comes off to all those in the control - with the exception of Three Bridges.Badger wrote:Remember I work in Northern's Control and the last few weeks have been absolute s***.
The timetable change has actually somewhat saved me, as I no longer use Northern trains - its now easier for me to get a bus from Wakefield to Huddersfield, rather than go for the Westgate (now Kirkgate) train, so i've not used Northern since the new timetable anyway. However what I have seen on my volunteering stuff is yeah, both TPE & Northern suffering some quite horrendous muck ups. Northern are facing calls to have an inquiry or even their franchise taken off them by the mayors of <two places I forgot> - although i'm not sure how much of the new timetable and subsequent breasts pointing firmly upwards was Northerns doing, and not DfT wanting X or Y services altered.Badger wrote: Remember I work in Northern's Control and the last few weeks have been absolute s***.
