I got caught up in the Banbury incident last night and took hours to get home. The railways and their staff coped admirably with the disruption but really need to raise their game in information management. The fault was caused by the failure of a National Grid substation, it was not caused by the railways. You won't read this anywhere though. Why are they so keen to let everyone assume it was their fault? It's the same every time there's a suicide or a bridge strike by a road vehicle.

It's open. The signs that were being used to declare it closed at the entrance have been tossed into the flooded undergrowth near Boundry House.

I'd like to nominate the staff at First Great Western's twitter feed as heroes - the train service is rubbish at the moment, but they've worked really hard to keep the feed up to date with information and have answered queries really quickly.
