New figures show that 7 in ten trains do run late on Britain’s rail network, this is the first time we have seen figures from these and the figure is based on the 59 seconds of the train coming early or late.
The rail operators that have given these details showed that 69.8% of trains ran on time in 2011 and 2012. To be honest we will never get the train perfect unless there is a Robert taking over the network, its part of our human action to try our best but it’s a hard job to run a train.
Transport Minister Norman Baker said: “I want passengers to be given obvious and simple information on the punctuality of their train services.
‘The coalition Government wants rail travel to be more clear and that’s why we have worked closely together with the rail industry to ensure these statistics will be published.’
