Remember on The Day Today when Chris Morris covered stranded train passengers going feral? It came close to happening over the weekend:

More than 200 people were trapped underground for two hours when a Tube train got stuck between stations. Police were called at 0115 BST on Tuesday, after a Victoria Line train stopped between Highbury and Islington and Finsbury Park in north London. London Underground tried to get it moving again, but it was 0300 BST before passengers were led out along the tracks to safety.

That doesn't sound like a lot of fun... there's only so many times you can read the adverts for The Da Vinci Code / Eurostar without going insane.

The Americans always have to go one better though - an Amtrak train was stuck for seven hours on Sunday after "an engineer reportedly disobeyed a traffic signal and had to undergo a drug test. The passengers weren't stranded underground of course, but just outside south suburban Dolton.

We're not sure which would be worse.
