2.49pm from Darsham delayed by 17 minutes, with no air-con and only 2 carriage so hugely overcrowded and stuffy. Missed connection at Ipswich due to the delay.
The next London bound connection, the 4.09pm, was amended to a stopping service (Witham et al) without warning, adding 25 minutes. Some disruptive passenger at Colchester wouldn't leave the train which caused it to stop for HALF AN HOUR at Colchester as Abellio bottled phoning the police for the first 15 minutes, for no good reason. Just phone the old bill and chuck him off ffs.
Didn't roll into Stratford (no trains to LLS) until 5.52pm. Rubbish.
EDIT - Oh, and missed the most annoying bit, no fecking bar.
During my lunch break I took a wander westwards from Victoria and there were outside every pub I passed! I have a soft spot for them. Massive city with limited success. I like Goodnight Irene as an anthem too.
