Why do non of the central trains newer deasil trains (sorry I don't know thier name, they work the citylink services amongst others) have loads of internal doors seperating the diffrent sections of the carriges that don't work! They are hardley ever working, and I've been on when they are working and they make a huge diffrence in terms of noise, but there usually jammed open, or you even have to force them open with your hands! Are they really unreliable? Or do they get turned off for some reason? Just weanted to know for some reason!

Thanks.:D

The Turbostar doors probably hardly ever work because they are very annoying when they do work. They probably receive quite a number of complaints and decide to isolate them after a while.
I remember sitting in unofficial First Class seats from Nottingham to Alfreton, and even in that short distance I got very annoyed at them opening for no reason.

Plus, I didn't even know Central Trains HAD First Class!

I've noticed this internal door problem many times on Turbostars. Annoying when you need the toilet for those who avoid the 20p New Street charge but more seriously a HSE issue?

Surely all such doors can be opened by decent pressure from the hand when failed?

Most likely although they have small, low handles which can be problematic...

Never tried it myself 8-)

If the doors aren't opening properly, give them a kick (tip from a guard I might add!). Oh, and don't need the loo on the late night trains, because the tanks will be full and the doors locked (unless you have a sensible conductor who wedges the door open).

According to the handmade sign I saw on 'one' in the summer, you're supposed to yank the doors apart by placing your hands flat on the glass:rolleyes:
