Frustrated commuters bombarded train companies with more than 280,000 tweets about delays last year.

There were also more than 70,000 tweets concerning cancellations and more than 62,000 about overcrowding, according to a study by data team Commute London.

Based on tweets in 2014 from passengers of the 14 train companies which run services into London, the research showed that First Great Western (FGW), at 45,100, had the most tweets about delays, followed by Greater Anglia (41,120) and Southern (34,645).

Southern had the most tweets about cancellations (12,481), followed by FGW (9,573) and Greater Anglia (9,314).

The timetable is our promise to passengers and almost nine out of 10 trains now arrive on schedule.

Operators have embraced social media so, when things do go wrong, they can give passengers the latest travel information and help answer queries quickly to allow people to better plan their journey.
