sounds to me like the commissioning and testing process wasn't terribly
robust and there was some form of pressure to get the trains into
service for a date or event that meant they weren't "shaken down"
properly to avoid those sorts of serious failure. An easy position to
get into and a bloody hard one to get out of.
