    ~the_one~: Yes, there are less dead than in the other two attacks(9/11, Madrid). But there is still confusion and chaos in London, and people have still died. People are going to be concerned, and I don't think that's selfish at all.

    But this is London's first terrorist attack, so it's understanable how everyone is frantic.
    Huh? Did the IRA's campaign suddenly become erased from memory? :confused:

    True...But these terrorists have taken it too far. They're killing innocent people. It just makes me angry
    Thats terrorists they're cowards they havent got the balls to attack something that can defend itself, hopefully this will give the security sevrices and government a kikc up the arse and improve homeland security andprotect our borders better!

    Yes its true, but london has and will withstand much worse. Blitz, Natwest tower etc.
    Of course, and to be honest, this has been inevitable.

    That was scary...I was in the middle of that. In the heart of the city. Basically next to Russell Square, was near Liverpool St when the explosion there went off. It has taken me 2.5 hours to get home.

    Thanks, the journey will be as necessary as you can get. His trains not till later so it might have cleared up a bit by then. PS I assume this is Virign Trains though me could be using the Midland service.
    Virgin Trains are only running a service from Euston to Wolverhampton. You'd have to catch another train from W'ton to get to Manchester.

    To be fair, most of the big IRA campaigns took place before a lot of people here would remember.

    I mean, I only know about some of them thanks to my family. The ones within my living memory were nowhere near as big as the ones in the eighties..

    I don't quite get the logic in that, why are they are not completing the journey to Manchester?

    I think it's so trains can head back down to Euston as quickly as possible..

    AT: From NationalRail.co.uk..

    Virgin Trains
    Virgin Trains services are operating from London Euston, XX:40 to Wolverhampton, XX:18 to Liverpool, XX:05 to Manchester, XX:45 to Glasgow Central. Trains towards Reading are terminating at Oxford.



    So it's running, just hourly rather than half hourly.


    And technik, I wasn't forgetting it. I just thought that happened in the eighties. If it was the early-mid nineties I was only a young child. So not knowing the full details of it is forgiveable.
