Virgin Pendolino crash
Pictures from the Cumbrian local paper, I am surprised there were not more casualties on a busy Friday night train – 1 killed, 11 seriously injured. Early speculation is about the track and points.
From a transport professional perspective it will be interesting whether this has any impact on the ongoing debate about rail ownership, transport safety generally, rail capacity and Virgins bid for the ECML… the unions are putting two and two together already, rightly or wrongly.
