More cable theft misery for commuters

February 27, 2010

Cable thieves caused misery for commuters again on Friday morning when trains were left stranded in Northern Rail’s Newton Heath depot by the theft of signalling cable from the depot area.

Many morning rush-hour services were cancalled and others over-crowded as a result.

On the 0737 from Walkden I counted over 180 passengers disembarking at Salford Central and Victoria – an incredible number for a 2-carriage Pacer train.
