Signal fault brings train chaos

Rail services into and out of Edinburgh have been slowly resuming following an early morning signalling failure which hit rush hour trains.

The fault near Haymarket station in the capital brought trains to a standstill with thousands of commuters affected.

I resorted to a bus journey in the end, which took 1 hour 42 minutes. It took a circuitous route through various towns – I got off less than 40 miles from where I boarded. I arrived at my desk three hours after leaving the house.

To put that in perspective: I could have been in London via aeroplane in the same amount of time.
