COMMUTER Anita Curtis has been pleasantly surprised by the service on the railways so far this week.

Starting her new commuter diary on Monday, Anita emailed to say: “It’s looking good! Train for a Monday morning had all its carriages and the right formation too. Arrived on time and only those from Colchester struggled to find a seat.

“Fingers crossed for this evening. Will this be a good week?”

And the return leg was as successful.

“Again a full train and correct formation.
