“Sadly now we have no estimate for the road to reopen or a traditional service to renew,” East Midlands Trains instructed passengers at London St Pancras on Friday.

On the day the rail business revealed that prepare fares will rise within the New 12 months by 3.1 per cent, travellers on the Midlands foremost line to Sheffield discovered that “a significant signalling failure within the St Albans metropolis space” had scuppered their journey plans for the foreseeable future.

The travelling public appear unconvinced. Three out of 5 of the 325 self-selecting respondents to a one-hour Twitter ballot performed for The Impartial mentioned companies had been no higher than 20 years in the past.

Of the rest, nearly half mentioned that whereas some companies had improved, theirs had not.

The response on social media to information of the January fares rise – and the rail business’s assertion of companies being “much better” – was overwhelmingly scathing.

Mike Alcock tweeted: “Getting higher? It’s not. GTR [Govia Thameslink Railway] are an absolute shambles. Being charged much more for a horrible service is an entire p*** take.”

A Northern Rail commuter, “Sammy P”, tweeted: “I’ve been commuting into Manchester from Horwich now for almost 10 years. My first month-to-month ticket value £70. It’s now £104.

“There was no enchancment, the trains have develop into busier and fewer dependable.”

“Accountability is way too diffuse in the mean time.”

Darren Ashton described the transport secretary as “a silent companion” and requested: “The place is Chris Grayling in all of this? Nonetheless in hiding?”

The RDG accepted that “the present system is beneath extreme pressure”, saying: “Partly as a result of successes in growing companies and boosting passenger numbers, we now have one of the congested railways in Europe.

“The smallest delay can have an enormous ripple impact. On the similar time, we’ve been rebuilding the community to scale back congestion and create the area to run much more companies. It’s obligatory however disruptive work – like renovating your own home whilst you’re nonetheless dwelling in it.”

Commuters at London Bridge, one of many capital’s busiest rail hubs, endured years of dislocation because the station was reconstructed. They need to now be reaping the rewards of a £1bn Community Rail mission that totally re-opened at first of this 12 months – on the identical day as fares rose by 3.Four per cent.

However Christa Grover, who lives in Grove Park in southeast London, mentioned: “My prepare is late day-after-day, three to 4 minutes going dwelling.

“I do know it’s not a lot however if you happen to add it up it finally ends up being quite a bit.”

She referred to as the 2019 fares rise “ridiculous – I don’t suppose we get what we pay for”.

Rail passengers reliant on the Northern franchise in northwest England are making ready for the newest strike by members of the RMT union.

A dispute over driver-only operation has dragged on for a lot of the 12 months. Stoppages are deliberate for each Saturday in December.

It briefly appeared that some progress was attainable after the prepare operator invited the RMT to talks on the authorities physique ACAS.

However Northern refused to accede to the union’s demand of “an absolute assure that no trains will run with out the second member of employees on board”.

The RMT common secretary, Mick Money, mentioned the strike would go forward. Seven out of 10 Northern companies on 1 December shall be cancelled.

Mr Money additionally weighed in on the fare rise announcement, saying: “The one resolution to Britain’s rail fare rip-off is a publicly owned railway run solely within the public curiosity free from the greed of the personal prepare corporations.”
