should have just electrified the goblin with DC decades ago. It really is no
surprise the british rail industry is an utter basket case when this is the
calibre of the people working in it.


This being the TfL that's so scrapped for cash that it's mortgaging
rolling stock it hasn't finished paying for yet?


The 378s were ordered long before Kahn came in and froze fares.

Or the DC electrification project which would have cost the taxpayer
millions and set back OHLE by half a century further?


Half a century? Would the presense of a switched off conductor rail on a
closed for upgrade line cause some some disturbance in The Force preventing
the installation of AC overhead then? Oddly it didn't prevent most of the
rest of the NLL being converted to AC.
