Faulty lights sparked misery for commuters yesterday (Monday) when a station was plunged into darkness.
Trains could not call in WGC for two hours between 4.34pm and 6.34pm.
It is now fixed, but rail users were unimpressed at the time.
Tilly Sampson took to Twitter to register her disgust.
She posted: “Welwyn station shut. Like I needed another reason not to work here #angry.”
