Tubes and trains run early shock horror

Well, sort of.  Last night I was delayed going home by a total of four minutes (I was not delayed on the preceding tube, got an excuse for the Tube Bingo card: 'I don't know why we're being held up' - despite the fact it made no difference to the journey).
This morning, however, despite a train stopping between stations for no apparent reason, and thus being six minutes late into Wimbledon for the connection, I arrived at my final destination (Paddington this morning) a whole minute early (according to Journey Planner), so I have to take £2.50 off the bill.

Still, I end up with a total of three minutes' delay and £7.50 since the last update.

Very fair of you re. arriving early.

Ah, welcome again anonymous. You are a prolific commenter on many blogs and indeed other web sites. I am pleased you grace these pages again.

Indeed fairness is the very essence of Signal Failure. Fairness and spite. A unique combination, I'm sure you'll agree. Plus, it's not the first time I've issued a credit to TfL. Though it is only the second.
