Fortunately it's not often that I get to say that some Tube trains nearly crashed but it's slightly typical that it happened on the beleagured Misery Line. An investigation is under way after a Northern line Tube train entered a tunnel the wrong way, into the path of another train on Sunday. The train's driver slammed on the brakes when approaching Camden Town station as he saw the other train.
A London Underground spokesperson said "Incidents of this nature, whilst disturbing to the public, (no sh*t Sherlock) are incredibly rare."
I think he or she is right as in all of years of blogging, I don't remember hearing about a train going into tunnel the wrong way. But perhaps these incidents are hushed up.
