  • You appear to have overlooked the enormous problems on the network yesterday evening. People trying to return south to Ipswich from the north were first marooned at Peterborough, then were shunted off to Cambridge to pick up a train which broke down. Buses to get them to Ipswich didn't turn up. It ended with taxis having to be commandeered to allow people to complete their journey. 5 hours to get from Peterborough to Ipswich. Anyone who says the rail service is better off in private hands is lying.
