Victoria Screeches

ghosttrain.jpg Get the WD40 out, Westminster. Residents in housing developments looking onto the 10 mainline tracks of Victoria Station are fed up of trains "screeching" on dry tracks at all hours. If we hadn't been at Willesden Junction yesterday afternoon, subjected to a sustained screeching from a slow moving train, we might be less sympathetic but we know what they're complaining about. A whole host of platform waiting passengers put hands to ears and winced for a full 2 minutes, the transport equivalent of sharp nails down a blackboard. Ow. Of course, if you choose to live near a major transport hub you can't complain when you hear trains but this ain't your average chugging along. Lube those tracks up and spare our eardrums please.
