IMO: National Rail has got stuck in the past to when computers had Windows 95 on them. This is when technology was advancing at a steady speed. When some things seemed "Like a good idea at the time". But the ONLY thing that seems to have "improved" is the New rolling stock (their words not mine!) But even they haven't improved, "cough" Virgin Pendolinos "cough" . So what has? Vandalists run riot in this age of hightened security, trains now have more delays and by the looks of things, nothing has moved on! What seems to of happened is the Rail Network has moved on to fast. When the "new" technology came out in the mid 90's, the rail network picked it up in the late 90's and early 2000's. Then guess what happened?, technology moved on at a staggering speed. With millions invested in the "latest" technology, it all moved on! Is a long period shut down of the rails the only way of putting things right, because remember, while 1 train is out of service because of vandalism another is doing twice the work which eventually leads to that train braking down and so on costing a lot of money and doing the same, if not more, amount of damage as a long-period shut down would. So what do you think. Has the National Rail Moved on, gone backwards or is it frozen in time somewhere?
