First Capital Connect introduces emergency timetable

THE big freeze has forced rail bosses to draft in a revised timetable for the two days before Christmas.

First Capital Connect’s Great Northern route, which operates through Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Potters Bar, Brookmans Park, Welwyn North, Knebworth and Welham Green, will be subject to the emergency measures today (Thursday) and tomorrow.

A spokesman for the rail operator said the revised service “reflected the recent impact of the bad weather on our train fleet”.

Further, technical problems on FCC’s website means live departure board information cannot be accessed until at least noon.
