Archant

Travellers at Gunnersbury station earlier today faced a long wait after a departure board listed trains as between 939 and 999 minutes away - that’s over 15 hours.

The crazy board at the Tube station in Chiswick was annoying commuters during rush hour at about 8.20am.

Twitter user @onyxparadise said: “Yes Gunnersbury station, the next Eastbound train is going to High St Kensington in 940 minutes. That can’t possibly be a mistake...”

Reddit users had some fun with it, with one saying ‘Looks like Friday is cancelled’ and another joking ‘Bet they still won’t be on time’.

The glitch follows this week’s Tube strike which saw no trains even going through Gunnersbury for 48 hours.
