MEL - yet again!

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Sun, 12/03/2006 - 20:14,

Following a SPAD at Harrow on the Hill reportedly due to Manual Electronic Logging in use in the signal cabin, MEL equipment was removed from Harrow and Whitechapel cabins. HMRI are apparently investigating - but as Tubeworker writes, MEL is being put back in, on test, with new modifications.

There are still all sorts of problems with using MEL - we should remember that it is still on a trial basis and has not been agreed. Tubeworker wonders what the public would think if they knew that signallers were being distracted by having to use the MEL system - which makes the job more difficult and is not necessary for the task of signalling trains?
