Thanks for the recent comments to this blog published here for your delectation
You know that come 2011 they'll be telling us that they won't be installed until 2020 for some stupid reason.
The new trains planned for that line have to be delivered first and they will run on the old present day signalling. When all the new trains are running and the old ones scrapped the new signalling will be installed area by area. The new trains will have to be able to use both old and new signalling ( interunning ) until the whole line is resignalled. Converting pre war train stop/trip cock signalling to the latest moving block technology and on a line as large as the district will take some time. 2011 could been seen as optimistic. The complexity of what is planned is not to underestimated as the District also shares tracks with the Circle/Piccadilly/H&C
Thanks for that technical input. I just want to get on a train (on time) get to my destination (quickly) and for a reasonable price (£2). Is that too much to ask?
Get a fukcing life!
All I see here is whingeing about the tube. You need to get out more and stop being obsessed and wound up with such things.
Well Kleenex thats what this blog is about. I have a superb life apart form the tube and obviously am idiscerning enough to demand a better service than I get now for the exhobitant fares I pay. Nice nickname you have. Obviously a regular wanker.
