Total shambles this morning at Shrub Hill. Mostly pre-recorded announcements that told you nothing. The best being 'Passengers for Clapham go to Platform 10'. I wish I had decided to take the car!

Any time I've used the railways recently, it was way better than I expected, but not exactly brilliant.

I can't help thinking the money the government is about to waste on HS2 would be better spent on upgrading regional railway lines, stations and rolling stock.

Couldn't agree more. The existing railway infrastructure is creaking and the money due to be spent on HS2 could be put to far better use - starting with the signals at Shrub Hill!
