UPDATE: a four-minute delay on the 19:19 tube from Edgware Road to Waterloo this evening, but I did't miss my connecting train, so this sin is forgiven. And, unusually (as I'm sure even the staunchest TfL ally amongst my readers would agree), that train was on time too. Signal Failure: nil points.
Or 911 if you're American. This morning's delay was brought to you by 'emergency engineering works', which cause me to have to change trains at Surbiton in order to get to Waterloo, where I ended up 24 minutes late. The connecting tube added another two minutes' delay, making me 27 minutes late overall, when you factor in the connecting tube I should have been able to take's published departure and arrival times.
Last night, the tube from Edgware Road to Waterloo was two minutes late, so I missed my connecting train, and the train I was able to take after that was four minutes late within the TfL network, getting me home 34 minutes late. There was no explanation offered for the second delay, but the first was down to the 'earlier suspension' on the Bakerloo Line - presumably the one that led to my suffering yesterday morning.
So, since the last update, that's 61 minutes and £152.50. Also two more crosses for the Tube Bingo card, but sadly not ones producing a bingo.
