Zig Zag Railway hits the buffers

1908 accident on the Zig Zag.

As warned a few weeks ago the Zig Zag railway will neither zig nor zag any more. Safety issues meant the last train ran this weekend and no more will run ‘until further notice’.

If the Government’s safety concerns can be met there’s the possibility of the railway re-opening. It seems a faint hope at the moment though. Presumably if it were easy to fix the issues the operators would have already done so. In any case, the Minister for Transport apparently describing the problems as “insurmountable” does not bode well.

Stop all engines. Sad.
