Real-time map service degradation

We are back to a sorry state of affairs, similar to the problems we had back in December 2018, where the train describer feed from the Network Rail Data Feeds platform starts sending message through later and later, then finally drops lots of messages.

This isn’t a problem affecting just us – sites such as RailCam and Traksy are also affected. There are alternative feeds that we can use which don’t have this problem of late and missing messages, but using them at the moment wouldn’t be in the interests of the whole Open Data community. For this reason, we’ve decided to let the quality of information on our site degrade so we can get the right level of focus on the problem.
