The London Overground returns in triumph

Largely shut since September 1st, the London Overground today ran services between Stratford and Richmond again today. It had been closed for engineering work which it was promised would lead to a more reliable service.

Those of us who live near Kensal Rise station wondered whether the 'more' was necessary, and although clearly one might expect first day teething problems, today was another disaster. The morning trains were delayed by about 10mins to 24 mins in one case (and it might have been more - my train turned up so I don't know how it ended up). A man next to me on the platform said 'I see the London Overground has returned in triumph'.

On Tuesday they blamed "extreme Autum Weather" whatever that means for my train being cancelled then the next one delayed.

On Wednesday we were stuck behind a freight train which meant we didn't move for 35mins.

I am very much looking forward to tonights journey.
