How does this happen in 2021?

Trains are mechanical. Mechanical things are fallible.

I doubt the mechanical parts of the system failed here

I'm actually more impressed with how well the buffer works, literally stopped hundreds of tonnes of steel in just a few metres.

Humans are often the weakest link in such incidents.

>I doubt the mechanical parts of the system failed here
Well the brakes certainly didn't stop the train. So it's either those, or the system that engages the brakes, which is electromechanical. Either way it dunn't wurked.
>>
>>1718994
Or the part that engages the system that engages the breaks, which is a human. Wouldn't have happened if it was automated.

No. Because automatic train brakes exist. The particularly exist at the end of the lines.

Funnily enough planes don't fall. (Airlineers in US).

train is doing its best. working very hard. sometimes make mistake. please understand

>>1718987
>Is there a rundown?
Train kept going when it should have stopped. Obviously not a brake failure as it's not gone and smashed through the fucking platform or anything, so it's happened at low speed. From the look of things it's tapped the buffers and, as they're the old style that are welded to the track itself, part of the track has lifted. Thus the derailment.

tldr looks dramatic but it's a 'whoops'. they'll inspect the running gear for damage and patch up the bodywork but, no lasting harm done.

This happened.
Seems like the operator was relying on the automatic stop.

Tbf the London tube is pretty good. Definitely liked it better than the Berlin U-Bahn, albeit maybe it's a case of Grass is Greener on the Other Side
>>
>>1719000
Not everywhere, and not controlling all the way to a stop. Standard UK practise only enforces <12.5MPH 55m away, and that bump could've easily been at that speed.

I can think of a few reasons:

-Humans are stupid
-It's in britain
-it's in london

You don't need more, the only difference here is that if it was in america the train would have only stopped after it crashed through half of the town.

Due badly maintained equipment and personnel that is.

2. Selecting a politically-connected contractor that always does dogshit job for signalling upgrades

Why are retards acting like train accidents are in any way unique to Britain? Do they have the mental capacity to not make everything about nationality and the people that inhabit a country? Are they that obsessed?

No, poland seems relatively safe for passengers. I thought it might be they're just miscategorising suicides as accidents for some weird reason, but looking at the rest of eastern europe they're not much of an outlier. It doesn't break down what sort of accidents individual countries have, but I guess it's a combination of bad level crossings and drunk hobos in rail yards.

>>1718980
I'm betting driver had a bra fart and applied power instead on brake. Crash probably happened under 7mph, there is a lot of momentum in a 200t train.

>>1719682
Overspeed tpws grids are set 10mph at 65m.
