FlixTrain has had to cancel trains between Göteborg and Stockholm this week due to the problem of damaged carriages. Swedish media report several wagon windows and the undercarriage have been damaged so badly that the wagons had to be taken out of service, and without enough backup vehicles, services had to be cancelled. Service will remain affected through Monday at least.

Hm…, “minimise risks” is good, but now risks have to be outed – from, the by far, safest on shore mode!
An infrastructure, short of safety margins, now devastatingly short of redundancy, is not sustainable!
Ever ongoing, predictive…, “optimal maintenance”, now big business, plaguing clients, industry and owners, is a symptom of a suboptimal railway.
Quality pays, and at transports, now more than ever!
A New Old Railway, a redundant, is needed!
