interesting. i never knew it was this serious. i was in london for 4 days and i knew it had many issues, but i couldnt tell the difference between the tube and say nyc's subway. but im not an tranportation planner or anything.Dharmster said:Read the items they are working on. If they did proper periodic maintenance your do things like replace rail, refurbish station, and maintain signals on a regular basis. Also much of this stuff lasts a long time, and the fact that they are doing this on an emergency basis is a clue that they haven't been doing much maintenance.
