So network rail are launching a task force to investigate how they can have more resilience against a future heat wave. No s*** Sherlock.
Clearly they have all agreed that the temperature is rising and now they do this.
I can feel a fare rise coming in. More green tax !!!

They made the problem worse themselves by changing the type of rail system they used.
They now use long lengths of rail that can't expand like they used to and have to be cut and replaced.

Any railwayman looking in could explain better.

Well copper pipe expands about 1 mm for every meter. You hear this when your central heating turns on then contracts when it goes off. That creaking and cracking where itís moving through the joists. If steel is even 1 mm every 10 metres with ambient temperatures the expansion must be phenomenal

Thank goodness we are past the worse of it.

It wasn't quite as hot as me in my early twenties, but it was up there.
