Nothing to do with our railway managers then, phew!

Just one thing, do you know any other organisation that would permit anyone to run 'tests' on mission critical systems, plant, or machinery without it being thoroughly checked elsewhere? Or did our highly paid, professional, very competent managers simply 'forget'.

We really are a class act aren't we? International sales here we come..... laugh.gif

Isn't that the point of having a test though?

Yes, of course, BUT surely you test the basics off line and if you really can't you have a full team standing by to put things right. There are a good few very serious questions that need to be answered here because at first sight it would seem some serious foreseeable errors have been made.

Sort of railway equivalent of the double decker bus getting stuck under the train bridge. One would have thought the minimum height of any cable would be the first measurement to be checked.
