It is unbelievable the number of times there are delays because of signal failure on this line. In this age of development how can what seems a simple electric pulse fail a dozen or more times a year. What would the underground in the capital do if it happened there.

It wouldn't happen in the capital! They get all the investment in track, signalling and rolling stock. We, up north, on the other hand have to make do and mend with antiquated systems and clapped out rattle-boxes!
