  • Services on the East Coast Main Line were impacted by a significant incident at St Neots when the overhead wires failed causing severe delays for all operators on the route including East Coast Trains and First Capital Connect
  • Major infrastructure failures of the overhead wires at Radlett on the Midland Main line, impacting First Capital Connect and East Midlands Trains, and at Hanslope on the West Coast Main Line, impacting London Midland and Virgin Trains, had a significant affect upon the performance of these operators
  • Arrived on time - the measure of train punctuality also known as PPM (public performance measure) means trains arriving at their destinations within five minutes for commuter services and within 10 minutes for long distance services. This measure of punctuality is commonly used throughout Europe
  • National train punctuality is measured for all trains across the whole network, including cancelled services and delays caused by external factors (such as vandalism, extreme weather, suicides etc). Punctuality did not start to be recorded in this vigorous and thorough way until 1997. Before then Railtrack, and BR before, did not measure all services and also excluded external factors and other items from their numbers
  • These figures represent provisional data for the period and individual operators' performance data may vary slightly from the full period performance report that Network Rail publishes on its website every month
  • Network Rail and the train operators run more trains across Great Britain than are run in most European countries - almost 20% more than in France and 60% more than in Italy. Great Britain's 24,000 trains per-day is also more than Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Portugal and Norway combined
  • Right time train performance data (% of trains arriving within 59 seconds of schedule) both for period 10 and for the year to the end of period 10 are also available by using this link http://www.networkrail.co.uk/about/performance/
