RAIL bosses have been forced to revise controversial plans to slash ticket office opening hours.
First Capital Connect (FCC) had mooted cuts at 28 of its stations, including Welwyn North, WGC, Knebworth, Cuffley and Brookmans Park.
The proposals met with stubborn resistance from politicians, commuters and rail unions alike.
And now, following discussions with rail watchdogs Passenger Focus and London TravelWatch, as well as "other key stakeholders", the company has decided to amend its plans.
