We just have bought a new train fleet
The country’s joy and pride
Appears we have a problem though
Can’t squeeze past, seems too wide….
2,000 trains ordered. Too big for 1,300 stations
Wrong measurements given to manufacturer.
Calculations based on 30-year-old station widths.
No-one bothered to verify. 1,300 stations needed altering
Estimated damage value $68 million
