Yesterday's 'Surrey Hills' was a bit of a 'curates egg'. Clan performed in her usual exemplary style, however the trip was thawted for a number of reasons. Before Clapham Jn the train was held for a London Overground service this meant that the train was 14' late at Clapham Jn with consequential loss of turn to other services, time was picked up after the Addlestone Jn pathing stop only to be held outside Woking by a late running SWR service. The arrival at the Shalford water stop was 4' late. After the water stop the train was cautioned at Ranmore Crossing and Brockham AHB for trespassers, the final indignity was a signal failure at Pouparts Jn resulting in a 9' late arrival.

A good trip with no issues to report, arrival at Bristol TM a couple of minutes early return arrived at Victoria 15 minutes early! I understand from support crew who were on the train that some spirited running took place.
