Sounds like someone put a cable on the back of a truck...

Based on the 'happenings' of the last few weeks, the second one seems much more likely!

Oh boy, if that happens in a few years i'll be the one fixing it, sounds like a major failiure if there is still no ETA for normal services after 12 hours. They should've been able to replace a piece of cable in 12 hrs, so it rules that out

A total power failiure at Madley Junction only lasted 4 hours a few weeks ago

stil there at 09:36, i can't be sure if i'm trying to fix it or not :oops:

I've just checked NRES, and there is still no update as to when the problem will be fixed. I'm glad I'm not going to Cardiff to do the 50 over the VoG line now.
