Letter: The train now arriving belongs to another company

Click to follow
THE balkanisation of the railways is hitting practice as well as timetables. On 30 October the Norwich-Liverpool Street train crawled to Colchester (and sped thereafter) arriving very late. Announcements apologised for leaves on the line, as did the ticket collector. When I pressed him further he said: ``They have a machine down here to clean the line, but this company won't use it on our part of the line.''
