Never worked that one out.I think they fictionalised alot of the IECC events which upset some, which Metroland noted.
Wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry after seeing the footage of someone 'tightening' nuts. The poor bloke didn't seem to have a clue, obviously a lack of training and hence a system failure. Amusing to watch but ask yourself how many sets of points have you passed over at high speed. Our lives are in the hands of trackworkers (amongst others) and I would like to think that they have the tools and training necessary to to perform the necessary maintenance.Contractors Will always be secretve, Was intresting to see what poor knowledge the workers had
I dont think Jarvis would of put their hands up anyway, after seeing and knowing whats going to happern to them, the chances of Jarvis saying "yes it was our fault" Where getting very thin indeed.Was all rather interesting. Its a shame that Jarvis seemed to be very secrative. Perhaps they knew all along that they were to blame?
Perhaps this is why when the British Transport Police examined another set of points maintained by the same pway crew, they found the points to be in perfect order, and that problem with the loose nuts fixed?From RailChat Forum said:1) Within 24 hours Jarvis had examined EVERY single set of points they maintained throughout the Country on their own initiative and without prompting. Not one single set of points was found to have any maintenance issues on them.
I wouldn't have expected them to put their hands up and admit it, but I would expect them to have a bt of co-operation with the inquiriy.Class 313 said:I dont think Jarvis would have put their hands up anyway, after seeing and knowing whats going to happen to them, the chances of Jarvis saying "yes it was our fault" were getting very thin indeed.
What do you mean they have seen it? And to be honest, are Jarvis to know that they have caused it? If your the pway crew who last inspected those points, and reported them as in working order, and they are not, you aren't really going to say "Yes, it was me!", so those higher up in Jarvis might not have known that they had anything to do with it.Class 313 said:after seeing and knowing whats going to happen to them
So maybe at the time of Jarvis' inspection, the points were in working order. That, or both the Jarvis and Network Rail pway gangs lied about the points' condition.RailChat said:Network Rail engineers carried out a specific and detailed inspection of those points a couple of weeks beforehand and reported them as being fully compliant (i.e. the stretcher bars correctly positioned)
I used to watch that, before out free 1 month of Sky went away.Out of curiosity, as I also missed this due to the other half! :P
Was this a stage by stage re-enactment? Was there any CGI involved? Dont want to sound sick, but I am interested in analysing catastrophic events. I watch Seconds from Disaster all the time.
The leading three coaches, with the trailing bogie of the third coach derailed, continued travelling along the Down Fast line. The emergency braking system had been initiated and the coaches came to a halt with the front coach about 400 metres from the northern end of the station platform.I'm interested to know what happened to the other 3 cars-it's a miracle as to how they weren't derailed with the 4th car.
