Today was the first day of the new First Great Western timetable that regular commuters would be using the service. I dont count the Sunday as this is not a full service anyway. As predicted there was chaos. First of all, my intended train was cancelled. The next through train to London was so overcrowded that they had to hold it at Reading for over 15 minutes to force people to get off for ‘Health and Safety reasons’. The overcrowding problem was highlighted to FGW about 3 weeks prior to this and what did they do? Nothing other than quote that these were to be faster services. I dont think so!
