no surprise there . signalling failure at wimbledon yet again , and of course , the cancellation of a hampton court service and no doubt a cancellation of a chessington service later too .
when ever there is a problem it's always signalling , whenever services are cancelled it's hampton court and chessington , the 2 most awkward places to get to from london . re nationalise the railways .
