Another unintended consequence of the benchmarks ?

Trains into London now slower than in 1987 - or is just a ruse?

Rail passengers face slower train journeys into London than 21 years ago.

Popular services to the capital are slower than in 1987 despite rail network and rolling stock improvements.

Critics say rail firms are "padding out" timetables by adding a few minutes to journeys between key stations to ensure trains arrive on time.
