Less than just a journey

I have a fairly high tolerance for piss-poor train service, but I might have reached my limit:-

Over the last few weeks Merseyrail have been experiencing unusual levels of wear on train wheels. Unfortunately this has caused a maintenance backlog resulting in fewer trains available for passenger service. Until further notice, all Northern and Wirral line trains will run as half hourly services and will be three cars only. All Wirral line services will terminate at James Street. We will, wherever possible, run additional services during the peak hours. We are working hard to resolve this problem and would like to apologise to our passengers for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Bit co-incidental they not long ago finished replacing all the underground track? They surely couldn’t have cocked it up?!
