    This made me laugh BBC News - Train services cancelled 'due to heat'

    They can not run trains when its too cold due to ice, they can not run trains when its raining cause its too wet and not they can't run trains because its too hot!!

    I use to get that train everyday to work glad I don't anymore, realised it was cheaper to live in London then pay over 5 grand a year to get in late to London everyday.

    I use to get the train from Ipswich, they dont provide the best service! I think I read some where that when the license for the trains run out National Express are not even allowed to tender for it because they made such a mess of it, dont know if that is true though.

    That was really a funny news, i never heard that before about the train delay or cancellation due to heat. It is quite common delays due to rain or ice but it is amazing.
