On this chilly and wet morning, I'd like to thank our railway company NMBS for the impressive achievement of making sure that NO evening train from Brussels to Antwerp leaves on time and this record attempt was started early September. Every single evening train had delay. Half November now and still going strong, folks.
Wrote a message on twitter:
Q: Why are there so many delays between Brussels and Antwerp since early September?
A: busy line.
Q: I gathered as much. Why are you shoving trains to Leuven on our schedule, causing so many delays?
A: The traffic control centre decides which lines get priority.
Q: Thanks so much for making Leuven a priority on one of the main Belgian rail axes Brussels-Antwerp.
I'm now contemplating which Leuven politician I need to thank for this because I'm guessing it's political.
