Coventry's most delayed train journeys in July; The one list that you don't want to see your commute featured on.

Byline: Elis Sandford

Who doesn't love travelling by train?

Comfy seats (if you can get a seat), and you don't have to drive. What's not to love?

Of course, the comfy seats (or standing in the vestibule areas during rush hour) are significantly less appealing when the train isn't actually moving. Or worse, running late.

Even worse again is standing on the platform, as the minutes tick by without your train arriving.

You can try to lessen the stress by travelling at different times, or on different services, but you can't always predict how busy the railways are going to be.

On the whole, trains in and out of Coventry are fairly efficient, but every month, there are some services which let the side down.

So here at CoventryLive, we've put together a list of the mostdelayed train servicesin July.
