Passengers were TRAPPED on a train at Plymouth this morning because salt water had apparently caused the doors to break.
One passenger said they were stuck on the train for 10 minutes at the station, and the driver told them they did a 'CTRL ALT DELETE reset' on the train doors.
Another person on board said: "What happens if there's a fire on board", while another commented: "This is pretty bad because these are supposed to handle the Dawlish line."
So, now the new GWR trains seem to be affected by salt water!! We have the voyager trains that cannot travel the sea wall at high tide because they break down if water gets on the roof and now we have the new GWR trains whose doors won’t open if they get slat water on then!! You really could not make this up!!
I would correct any errors above but the website won’t let me! Also, why do I have to sign in EVERY time I visit this forum?
