Notes:
¹ On time is defined as arriving at the final destination within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival time. Freight trains are only considered to have failed FDM where the delay was caused by Network Rail. A higher score is better. The moving annual average (MAA) reflects the proportion of trains on time in the past 12 months.
