IT was an ordinary commuter train plying between London Waterloo and a south London suburb when it suddenly drew to a halt. Passengers were locked inside the carriages because a problem had occurred: someone had thrown something onto the line, so the next station had to be shut, and the electrification system switched off.
Eventually, after a further delay of 40 minutes, the passengers were taken off the train, led down the track by Health & Safety officials and put on a standby bus.
Tempers were frayed and everyone voiced the same thought: "If it's like this now, what is it going to be like come the Olympics?"
