The right kind of ice - Railways prepare for Arctic conditions

Let's hope the Tube's prepared too

For once it looks as though we may not be having delays on the railway due to the icy weather and snow that's predicted in the UK this weekend. From yesterday's Standard Lite, I discovered that British Rail claim to have a "magic" de-icer which will be used to prevent tracks and points jamming.

We can only hope that the London Underground have the same type of de-icer. Otherwise there will be loads of delays due to the "icy conditions" "frost on the line" and the wrong type of ice which seems to take London Transport by surprise every year.
