One / First Eastern, tonight trains delayed due to heat buckling the line and overhead cables. They aint got a [****!!****] clue. Witless.

This follows on from three other journeys, Yesterday morning and night and this morning, 4 [****!!****] journeys in two days.

I hate commuting into London, I just wish I could find a job local so that I would not have to listen to another feeble excuse / lie from One or Eastern or whatever they wish to call themselves.

Sick of it. Unfortunately I can not earn enough locally to pay for my outgoings. So looks like I am stuck with this, until the company I work for sack me for time keeping. I refuse to get up any earlier, why should I.

Eastern take 3 grand of us, what do we see for it?

Yesterday morning we heard about an alleged fatality, yesterday evening it is Signals and this morning it is a broken down train at Colchester. That might sound like I am being harsh, but 3 years (since Hatfield) of listening to this cr@p.

If you complain by phone or letter they ignore it or come back with more excuses and if you verbally say something British Rail Police are on your case. All I did was chant as I went through Liverpool Street station commuter time,
“Same old Eastern, Same old Bull Sh1t” The only way I could get my point over.
“Oh Eastern Rail, oh Eastern Rail are full of sh1t, are full of sh1t, oh Eastern Rail are full of Sh1t. Sh1t, Sh1t and more Sh1t.”

Got some strange looks from the commuters, but I don’t give a t0ss. Eastern can ban me, past caring.

Eastern Rail.
I HATE them.

I got back to Euston last night having spent the previous 12 hours travelling through Germany, Holland, Belgium and France, hopped over on the ferry from Calais to Dover, gone from Dover to outside Victoria train station and then the tube to Euston, and the one thing that I knew would slow me down on this journey was fecking Silverlink trains - and had to endure a stopping service to Watford rather than the usual ten minutes on a fast train. Pikeys.

fatalitys should be ignored, no corpse can slow down a 200 ton train, just hose em off the tracks at close of business..
on c2c last night there was a 'soft ware issue' with the doors on the last carriage (or is that car now?) and a 'reboot' failed to resolve the issue.. fk me its a train! anyway we sat there untill some fking brusier of a guard said 'look just get everyone out of the fking last carrige and get this fking thing moving' nice old fashioned solution..
bring back british rail and those blue trains with the yellow fronts

Today’s little gem from those morons who run “One / First Great Eastern”

The barrier was stuck at Ingatestone, which means the signals were stuck on red and we could not move, my 5th Journey out of 5, (Just this week, Mornings and Evenings)

We were told by the muppet over the tannoy that he had to wait for someone to come out to us. I have noticed more people complaining instead of sitting there in silence.

This morning an hour late.
Last night 45 Mins. late.

My ticket expires on Sunday 4th July 2004, I am going to drive upto Stansted and Stortford this weekend, check out the times of trains on WAGN, for Monday 5th July 04, surely no one can be as cr@p as Eastern / One.

I am not condoning violence, but heard someone hit a guard at Witham. What a shame.

Your train travelling (forgetting stress) cost 3 grand. So you cannot find a job local to you or your salary minus 3 grand? Your could always go by coach!

Jobs local, doing the same as what I am doing in the city.

Are about on average 10,000.00 less. (Per annum)

I thought they scrapped London waiting, but there is still a big divide between working local to London.

Making Tea.

You have students to do that. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I am paid to work hard, well today anyway. They have put a new boss directly behind my desk, it takes for ever to read a post when you have to read it a line at a time. (Internet on minimize) so have to wait till I get home. <img src="/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />

Or for her to get a meeting, hopefully tomorrow.

I suppose you can always knock 'em up, you would have at least a year without them.

That could keep you busy.
