New excuse for cancelling train services

So this made me chuckle.

There were delays tonight on the Greenwich line as power had to be cut in the area around London Bridge and Cannon Street.

I went online to see what the cause was and saw this:

I’ve seen plenty of excuses over the years. This one is new to me.

By the way, power has now been restored and services on the move.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

    My favourite ecuse was when a mate’s train was cancelled from Tunbridge Wells “because the driver has forgotten his sunglasses.”
