Dodgy Norman’s Great Western Train Fault and Maintenance Mayhem!

Norman battles missing staff for the title of Worst FGW WTF Factor. Services disrupted by broken down or faulty trains.
“But the trains are some 40 years old” you say! It’s all Theseus’s Paradox in our opinion, AKA Trigger’s Broom. In those years, almost every component of the trains will have been replaced. Still the same 40 year old train? Make your own decisions!

40 year old light bulbs on board The Theseus Paradox express!

A good kick! Is it any wonder the trains are falling to pieces!

There’s a rumour that they’re being kicked! We read that somewhere!

We wonder! Could there be a connection between maintenance and carriages out of service? Or is the Department For Transport still to blame there!

You know how these “national shortage of rolling stock” things work, Mike!

Sorry about this, Jennie. Such events are very rare indeed! Just let Dodgy Norman have a go with his hammer!
