Bad day, Sunshine

By | September 2, 2006

British commuters were bemused to discover that their trains were delayed due to clement weather. Apparently it was such a beautifully sunny day that a train driver was unable to use his mirror to check the platform for passengers embarking or disembarking. London trains have along history of odd excuses for service interruption including “leaves on the line,” “the wrong kind of snow,” and “the wrong kind of soil” beneath the track.
