Default RAIB report on Vic Line leaving Warren Street with the doors open

As ever, an informative and readable account, and one that I think will
interest Boltar.

It's not the RAIB's job to assign blame, and these things normally read
as more bad luck than serious incompetence. In this case, though, it's
clear what the inspectors think of the train operator's competence.

Are there rare birds on the Vic Line then?

Unfortunately the fad of introducing ever more overcomplicated technology-for-
its-own-sake systems in all walks of life tends to lead to this sort of thing
when humans have to interact with it. Look at the final report on that Air
France crash. Sometimes keeping it simple really can be a life saver.
