Finally, finally, just over a week ago, the Overground (which cuts my morning commute more or less in half, not to mention bypasses all the tube stress) started running to Crouch Hill again. The thing is, I don't remember it being quite this unreliable last time.
One train every morning, the very appropriately timed 8:24, bypasses Gospel Oak and keeps going west, theoretically saving me about seven minutes. Now, out of the eight commuter days so far on the new line, it's been cancelled five times and been more than five minutes late (meaning I miss the changeover to the Richmond train) twice.
Today, as if by a miracle, it was in perfect time. But this sort of unreliability is going to be significantly annoying if it keeps happening - I do like to get to work on time if I can. I heard rumours about that particular route being cancelled if they have any other train problems, so I was wondering, does anyone else have previous experience with this? Is it going to keep happening?
And what's everyone else's experience with the reopened Overground line?
