Commuter Diary: Call goes up for revenue protection officer

Commuter Diary: Trains delayed by nearly 20 minutes this morning

Archant

THURSDAY night’s journey home from work was an eventful one for commuters heading back to Ipswich. Anita Curtis said: “Well I never. Calls from the conductor for any members of revenue protection tonight.

“Intriguing. What could this mean? Fare dodging? You won’t get away with that!”

She continued: “Bit of a long delay at Manningtree as no-one to unlock doors - presumably the conductor was otherwise engaged.

“The train was five minutes late at Ipswich.

“Apparently due to an “incident” involving the police. Never a dull moment!”

This morning she added: “Despite a short delay at Ipswich, the train arrived in to London on time.”

Anita is keeping us up-to-date with services along the Greater Anglia route to London. To share your experiences, add #CommuterDiary to your Tweets.
