West Coast Main Line: Problems again

It’s kind of ridiculous that after years and billions spent “upgrading” the West Coast Main Line, problems continue to arise.

A small plane crash can’t be helped, but we already had signalling problems, cracked lines – and now the powerlines are down at Euston:

Thousands face further rail chaos

Rail passengers are facing long delays after a power failure halted all trains in and out of London Euston.

London Midland and Virgin services to and from Euston have been suspended after cables came down in north-west London as a train was passing through.

Travel to Birmingham and north-west England is affected, as are regular commuter lines in and out of London.

Engineers are working to fix the lines and Network Rail said it hoped to have a limited service restored soon.

What an impressive farce this is all turning into.
