Snow way to run a railway

Telegrammed by our man at 222 Marylebone Road
At around 08.45 yesterday the National Rail website listed no fewer than six entries that said that due to poor weather conditions buses were replacing trains!

The routes were:

+ Horsham & Littlehampton

+ Littlehampton/Bognor Regis/Chichester & Havant

+ Ebbw Vale & Cardiff Central

+ Gatwick Airport & Horsham

+ Guildford & Effingham Junction (good job the sage has moved)

+ Tonbridge & Hastings

Clearly neither Network Coach nor the Bus Bandits now see rail as the primary all-weather mode of transport.
