    Engineering work on Liv Street line tomorrow

    Anyone be aware that if you are going to Sheff Wed tomorrow by train, that there are no trains between Shenfield and Ilford.

    Apparently there are no trains running through Romford due to a lineside fire. According to National Rail, trains are terminating at Shenfield. Not sure how long it will go on for, but it&#39;s buggered up my plans so I advise you to leave early.
