  1. It would appear this morning that we have the first political casualty of HS2 ,given the result of the Chesham &Amersham by election..No surprise there.
  2. These issues..if indeed they are issues…should not have been left to chance. Little excuse in forward planning.The numbers 170 and 153 mean nothing to fare paying passengers.They just want a train.
