Rail services return to normal
WAGN says rail services are now running to the normal timetable.
It follows months of disruption as a result of the Hatfield train crash and the subsequent rail replacement programme.
February 19, 2001
Trains running from Monday morning, February 19, reverted to the normal winter timetable which replaces the emergency timetable that has been in operation since October last year.
However, because of a local power failure, Brookmans Park station was unable to open for the early rush hour trains.
WAGN predicts customers are set to see a vast improvement to their train services with the full complement of trains operating as advertised in the normal winter timetable.
However WAGN warns that there could still be a few delays of between five or ten minutes at certain times as the Railtrack engineers complete their work in one particular area but that this should soon improve.
In a news release, printed on the WAGN site the company says there will be diversions for a time because of speed restrictions on the Northern City Line - the line between Moorgate and Drayton Park.
Because of that, three services in the peak periods, that would normally terminate at and start from Moorgate, will be diverted to and from Kings Cross. The details of which services to be affected will be announced nearer the time.
The two websites to keep checking for rail news are WAGN's
and Railtrack's sites.
