Network rail :evil:

Approaching TT xing 05.40 barriers down cars queueing train finally crawls across at 05.47 barriers up 05.49 takes me 3 minutes to drop and get back to crossing barriers going down again 7 minutes later same train reverses across barriers finally up at 06.00 by which time I am still 8 miles from my 06.00 pick up :evil:

why can't they do like the yanks and only put the barriers down when train is ready to cross not when it is 3 miles away trundling along at 15 MPH

Is that why there are road signs all around Peterborough saying avoid Stamford?

OVO energy I am currently 2 and a half months in front and usually only go over my DD limit 2 months a year but despite the fact my fixed price deal doesn't end for another 7 months my direct debit has to rise 15 percent to guarantee that i am more than 3 months in credit when the new price cap kicks in in June next year at those rates !

Have you contacted them to request that it stays the same for now? My energy company took more than expected out of my account the day before they went bust. B'stards!
