6:22pm Liv St To Clacton - The UK's Most Crowded Train

Department for Transport data shows that the 6:22pm service from Liverpool Street to Clacton was the most over capacity service in the UK in the evening rush hour.  The snapshot reveals that 262 people had to stand on the service.

The figures are taken from the autumn of 2009, before recent increases in the number of carriages by NXEA, as more recent data is considered commercially sensitive. However it is still quite a shocking statistic.
