Snow and “lack of air” cause chaos for Redbridge trains
TRAINS passing through the borough are running with severe delays, with some reporting they have “run out of air.”
National Express East Anglia has warned some trains could be up to 45 minutes late because of the poor weather conditions.
But one commuter, who boarded at Seven Kings, said his train was at a standstill for up to 40 minutes before passengers were told they had to get off at Forest Gate.
He said: “They said the train had run out of air and they would need to get more air pumped into it.
“I have never heard of that happening and don’t know what it means.
