Now that's a train delay Upminster with which London travellers shall not put

Up until a few years ago, the displays at Richmond (just down the line) would regularly display 'next underground/overgound train' as one that would/should have left hours ago, so they've obviously had to replace some kit with something that's missing a few updates.

(the networkrail site would also sometimes show an impossible District line journey to Dagenham East)

I once heard a DLR 'train captain' being asked why he was having to manually drive the automatic train. He replied it was because the system currently showed his train as being on the other track, travelling in the opposite direction!
