Dry Ice to Help Cut Train Delays Caused by Leaves on Tracks

In the News

There are some clever people out there, hopefully it will stop any delays. When you waiting out in the cold for a train that gets cancelled. Anything that cuts down on this.

I'm not looking forward to going back full time into the office.as I have forgotten the joys of waiting for trains that don't turn up.

What do you think of this?

It seems a good idea, but I thought CO2 (carbon dioxide) from which dry ice is made was in very short supply, I'm sure I saw it on the news within the last few weeks that production of CO2 had ceased in the UK.

I hadn't made the connection, I bet you are right. I hadn't realised they stopped production of CO2

I saw this yesterday B and agree with mr D, it seems like a good idea, but might be expensive to implement and then there is the CO2 problem as mentioned

I would have thought that some kind of powerful blower on the front of the train to disperse the leaves would be the answer , but i am sure someone on the technical team has looked at this and discounted it
