A spot of rain and FGW are running late again. Here we go again for Autumn and winter. #delayed services

You’d imagine, a transport company, responsible for transport, might have some form of contingency for when things go wrong. If there aren’t enough carriages (Department for Transport’s fault), and the rail infrastructure is notoriously bad (Network Rail’s fault), you might plan for these events. As a tranport company, you might think about transport contingency. Right? Wrong!

@FGW , first great western, on your website you say full details will be posted by 8pm. You're late, just like your trains.

@FGW cancelling all these trains, where is your contingency plan and get replacement busses on the go!!!! You are useless!

@fgw you really need to sort your shit out. My train is delayed by 83 minutes. Provide coaches or something. This is ridiculous.

There’s that word! The c word! No, the other c word! It just keeps appearing!
Three months of commuting and I already hate first great western. Can't wait for wind and snow to make getting to work an impossible task.

@ericahughes FGW left 15 of us stranded at Frome at 7 in the evening during floods last winter, no alt transport put on, and ignored calls!

Contingency will save you Emma! Think of the c word!
Could that be a warning? A mysterious prediction as a result of reading psychic cat litter? A conspiracy?
British Airways warns flights might be hit by the storm coming on Monday – god knows what @fgw will do .. trains replaced by space hoppers?
