Default Why does the jubilee keep on failing all the time ?

Yet another bad day on the jubilee line. A signal failure at North Greenwich this morning. Why is the jubilee line the worst line on the underground ?

Dunno, but I was going to use the Jubilee this morning to get from Kings
Cross to Westminster (via Green Park) and had to change my plans. Ended
up changing at Oxford Circus to the Bakerloo, and walking from Waterloo.

(The other option would be Circle/District via Victoria, but the smart
money avoids Victoria at the moment).

Its a real shame that so much money has been spent on a line that does not work.
I wonder if the Northern line will be downgraded anytime soon ?

Oh I see it makes sense they replicate various scenarios as a test. It's funny cause I don't remember if guinea pigs are included in the terms and conditions of travel
