Dew on train tracks blamed for delays


After the wrong kind of snow and leaves on the line, train users have now been given a new reason for delays – dew on the tracks.

London-bound commuters on services run by Southern train company were surprised to hear that their journeys were being delayed by "poor railhead conditions" – despite the mildness of the weather.

A Southern spokeswoman said: "This is a railhead phenomenon that happens at this time of the year. Dew gets on the tracks and makes conditions difficult."

Woody, is that some kind of euphemism?

You have to read the smaller print on the sign. It is perfect.

I'll say this for British rail: The untended sidings look better than ours. Buddleia is a lot classier than Sumac.
