Hi - does anyone use this service everyday for commuting? I’ve used it in the past when I go filming in Elstree, and I rely on it to be punctual with no delays/cancellations or I’d be in serious trouble. However, I’m hearing that it’s been hit lately with the new timetables. My friend came in this morning from West Hampstead to film at Crofton Park and was 30 mins late because of delays and then had to change at Farrimgdon because everything was running late and they decided the train wouldn’t stop at Crofton Park etc. to save time!
I know that a lot of train lines can be dodgy at times, but has the Thameslink link got particularly bad as of late? If so, I’ll need to factor this in to my journey if I get work in Elstree… being offered compensation if my train is delayed more than 15 minutes, doesn’t make up for being dropped by an agency because I turn up late!
