Default Slam door carriage torn apart on BBC South Today

"Bluestars" wrote in message ...
BBC South Today this evening showed pictures of a
slam door carriage being torn to pieces in the
demolition yard at Immingham.

The programme may probably be viewed at:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/england/southtoday/
View todays programme.

Note the programme may be seen this night only.

The clip was at the end of the broadcast programme.

(Not viewed this myself as it requires Real Player)

Why exactly are they being taken all the way to Grimsby to be
demolished? Wouldn't it be more effective to do it down here?

Down where? You're "In The North" remember. Which particular train
demolition yard in London did you have in mind?

I liked the old slam door trains. They were warmer and more comfortable
than the new sliding door, rattling, cattle boxes that we have to travel in.

I was and still am a regular c2c passenger before and after they
replaced their slam door trains with nice new sliding door ones. The
sliding door ones are more comfortable, cleaner, faster, a nicer
temperature and generally a more pleasant environment to travel in.

If your experience of the Great Eastern is with the horrible trains
they have which are like those on the North London Line then I could
understand that you'd prefer the slam door ones.

I travel on c2c from time to time and agree that their new trains are
VERY comfortable, maybe a little too much so. I really don't like
waking up in Southend when I'm supposed to get off at Stanford!

I was quite surprised at the build quality, personally - a lot of
solid metal and "hard-wearing" colours compared very favourably to the
flimsy plastic interiors of the Turbostars from the same manufacturer.
