G’day, Given that last winter the railways were an absolute shambles at times I’m interested to know whether any lessons have been learnt in readiness for the next few months. In particular have they done any of the following? 1. Drawn up plans to use locos to keep lines clear when snow is falling; preferably fitted with mini snow ploughs. The idea being that these locos are run over night so that commuters can get to work in the morning. 2. Bought as much grit as possible (i.e. a damn sight more than last year) to ensure to ensure that platforms are safe for people to walk on. 3. Hired in every loco possible fitted with ETH in case they are needed to rescue trains when the OHL is down. 4. Improved methods of removing snow and ice from the 3rd rail. Thanks in advance, Richmond Commuter!
