Fog leads to delays on the c2c line

FOG has led to train delays between Shoebury and Fenchurch Street.

Adverse weather conditions forced trains to run at a reduced speed this morning, causing delays of up to nine minutes on 11 trains until about 7.45am when the fog lifted.

While trains on the line generally run at a speed of 70 miles per hour, this was reduced to between 40 and 50 miles per hour because of reduced visibility.

The 8.50am Aer Arann flight to Dublin from Southend Airport was also cancelled.

My train driver this morning was brilliant. Poor guy had to keep running the length of the train to make sure all the doors were shut because the fog was so thick, he couldn't see the length of the train in his mirrors.

Well done Mr 5:32 am train driver. :)

Must be the result of all those crashing waves from Atlantic storms that that Councillor was worried about a few weeks ago....
