IF anyone thought that C2C customers would just wake up one morning and accept the new timetable, then they were very much mistaken.
Anyone who followed the twitter stream own Monday rush-hour would also be aware that matters feel like they are intensifying.
We hope that the powers-that-be are taking cognisance of this as there was a palpable sense of "on the edge".
British Transport Police has reported that they are patrolling platforms across the C2C line this morning (Tuesday).
There are a number of key meetings planned over the next few weeks including one between Southend MP, Sir David Amess and the MD of C2C, Julian Drury on Thursday evening at 5.30pm at Fenchurch Street Station.
