@recklessrik Actually Rich it is showing up as departing one minute early from West Drayton -Max

That’s an excellent question! Who indeed targets less than 100%?
@fgw Doing those sneaky early departures again? Just as well nobody noticed again. #fgw

Oh dear @FGW, this makes no sense whatsoever. pic.twitter.com/g9ZiDnzfRx

@FGW why show on-time when it's not even here! Your company's communication is so bad!
— James White (@JamesGavinWhite) March 6, 2014
First Great Western's definition of 'on time' really is quite bizarre

@fgw who runs the random train arrival predictor display at #reading. I swear a drunk monkey could improve it. #imoveryoualready

Here's a new one. We just left swindon *early*. Can't blame @FGW for wanting to do so but a bit harsh on those trying to escape…

@FGW Really upset at 7.52 from Exe Central leaving 5 mins early, not even stopping for us. 10 unhappy customers late for work!

#fgw 3 minutes late leaving today on 17.35 so why leave 1min early & tell your customers doors close 30 secs before departure?#inconsistent

Yesterday @fgw told me that 'late is late' no matter by how many minutes. But today the 0616 is 3 mins late "on time" pic.twitter.com/lvNErBk7tc

Thanks so much @FGW because your train left 5 minutes early I missed it and am stuck on a freezing platform for the next hour…

#fgw this is a picture of the1540 from Paddington to Maidenhead which is apparently "boarding and ready to leave"! pic.twitter.com/B1v3bzHI9F

@fgw gatwick train just left dorking minute and a half early so I missed it – not good enough!

First Great Western, our opinions on the phrase On Time differ somewhat. We haven't left yet. #meetquotasomehow pic.twitter.com/FukDzUPMn0

@FGW hi, why did the 6.58 train from Burnham to Paddington depart 3 mins early. Now I must get a cab to London!

@LolzHeart Morning. Services are currently running on time, although there may be delays of around 10 mins because of flooding. TJ

Services might be running on time? Strange turn of phrase!
@fgw still sent the fast train through 80% empty just to hit the stats.dont worry about overflowing platforms at EAL

@FGW have taken over Greenwich! Train showing as on time but, of course, actually late #champagnemoment
— Michael Voss (@VossIstDas) February 25, 2014
3 out of 3 so far for late trains. A FGW timetable must be right up there as one of the most pointless objects on the planet

.@NetworkRailPAD @FGW Hi, is there any chance of an explanation as to why a train which had not arrived was displayed as preparing please?
— neonexpress (@andywg) April 11, 2014
It’s all about the psychology of making passengers feel that things are progressing!
