You Couldn’t Make It Up, No. 94: Winter Railways Edition

Sometimes little nuggets come your way that you just have to share.

In a general report from South Eastern trains regarding service issues in Kent and South east London (I have it on paper, but it may be online somewhere) mention is made of the disruption during the severe weather last winter. Iced-up third rail issues aside, it is also revealed that the special winter maintenance vehicles that are used for clearing the rails were out of action, being – wait for it – in for maintenance.

Yes, really.

After all, when else would you take them in for maintenance?
