Packed trains ‘safer’ claim UK rail bosses

From The Register – this must be the most bullshit ever! They are claiming that people are better off in packed carriages. Try squeezing 12 people into a family car and saying its safer?

The Department of Transport claims £88M a week is being spent on improvements to the rail network. What the heck are they spending it on? New Ferarris for managers? The figure is more likely what they are spending each year or every 5 years.

Also “This month, First Great Western started introducing refurbished high speed trains, which increase capacity by 35,000 seats a day.” – OK, so this is one long train! I’m not sure where the extra seats are,but I can tell you this, they certainly are not on the peak time trains on the line I use!
