Network Rail Are Full Of Wind!

Yet again, we have no rail service today but this time they're blaming the weather…
Train services on all routes across Scotland are subject to disruption during the morning of Wednesday 9 January due to high winds and poor weather conditions.
The following lines are currently suspended and customers are advised not to travel or to make alternative arrangements. Replacement transport will not be provided on any of these routes:
- Between Glasgow Central and Ardrossan Harbour / Largs.
- Between Glasgow Central and Wemyss Bay / Gourock.
- Between Balloch and Renton.

Okay, it's a bit windy out but I've never heard of them stopping the trains because of wind or a bit of rain before now. I remember being in a train travelling to Helensburgh where a combination of high wind and tide had the waves breaking over Craigendoran Harbour and hitting the train windows. Yet, the trains ran on without any bother.

So they won't be running trains between Glasgow and Paisley for yet another day! How very convenient of another excuse to surface and give them yet more time to finish off the engineering work they started on the 27th of December. If you ask me, they're full of it - wind that is or am I thinking about bullsh1t!
