Train trouble

I don't know how it is with train services in your country, but here in Belgium it's really bad! Yesterday morning my train had an half hour delay with no apparent reason - and one wasn't given either. Now I see that the train services between Ghent and the coast will be affected during the weekends of 6/7 February and 13/14 February - exact those weekends which are the beginning and then end of the Crocus Holidays! Don't they know many people will want to travel to the coast to spend a week there?

No, that's not important. I.m.o. Infrabel should work during the night. Trains don't run between 11 pm and 6 am, so there's enough time to work in between. But here night work is considered a punishment. Shops are not allowed to stay open at night as well. Our supermarkets have to close on Sundays, and are not open 24/24, 7/7 like in other countries. Everyone who attempts to change this is whistled down.

Well, I hope we'll be able to travel without too much trouble....
