Contingency Planning!

Bottled water? Oh wait, that’s contingency for the faulty air conditioning!

At least the passengers are making contingency plans!

Network Rail Signalling Problems

Where Is The Contingency Planning?

The weekend of 201st, 22nd of June 2014, and major signalling problems occur on the Thames Valley. They being on Saturday 22nd of June. Sirens wail! Klaxons sound! Contingency planning comes into force! Emergency timetable, extra communication! Planning! Or not!

Clarity of communications, Adam! It’s what FGW does best!

No communication! Surely some mistake! That hasn’t been reported over on the Communication Breakdown page!

Contingency planning! Yes, we’ve heard of it!

Contingency, FGW! Contingency! Planning! Things like that!

Indeed Helen! An issue which Network Rail needs to fix, but where FGW’s contingency planning has once again been caught short!

Contingency planning! Words on a screen!


We doubt FGW will care too much as they’re compensated by Network Rail! Good luck getting your hands on any of that cash!
