Great Northern (@GNRailUK) is tweeting that "a couple [of trains] have been diverted into Kings Cross". This follows a series of angry tweets from commuters over the last 30 mins.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/sparegunner">@sparegunner</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/JamesMGray10">@jamesmgray10</a> Originally there wasn't a problem, but alas you're right a couple have been diverted into Kings Cross. ^lloyd</p>&mdash; Great Northern (@GNRailUK) <a href="https://twitter.com/GNRailUK/status/538235961231306752">November 28, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Was it just me who had a chuckle because it was an Arsenal fan who was inconvenienced in that tweet?  >:D

Not a day to attempt travelling by train unless you have no choice.

No trains between Moorgate and Finsbury Park until at least 12:45
http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/service_disruptions/98938.aspx
A broken down train at Drayton Park means that trains are currently unable to run between Moorgate and Finsbury Park. Trains may be diverted to start / terminate at London Kings Cross. There is no firm estimate yet of how long disruption will last but it is likely to continue until at least 12:45.

Apparently, the consumer group Which? wants rail delay refunds to be made easier to claim. According to the BBC, the group says that after questioning 7,000 passengers they found that "only a third of people who may have been entitled to compensation actually bothered to claim it".

I wonder whether it would be worth commuters taking pictures of departure boards when delays/cancellations are announced just to help compile evidence for those who want to make claims in the future? The pictures could be attached to this thread - just click the 'Attachments and other options' link when posting.

Which? files super-complaint on rail delay compensation - BBC News

You may want to look at


http://www.recenttraintimes.co.uk/


for example will show you individual train details for the last 3 months and also summarise train times so you can see which is the most reliable train to catch for your commute.

Wow, thanks for that James. What a great resource. I just tried it out (screen grab below) with a query about the reliability of trains from BPK to FPK between 06:00 and 10:00. I didn't realise that site existed. Excellent. Thanks

The figures for the commute back from FPK to BPK on a weekday evening is also interesting. I set it for 100 days.

Looks like another fun journey home today...
"Emergency services are dealing with an incident near Potters Bar which is causing delays of up to 90 minutes between London Kings Cross / Moorgate and Stevenage. This is expected to continue until 19:00."
