I think they fictionalised alot of the IECC events which upset some, which Metroland noted.
Contractors Will always be secretve, Was intresting to see what poor knowledge the workers had
Was all rather interesting. Its a shame that Jarvis seemed to be very secrative. Perhaps they knew all along that they were to blame?

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.
