Refurbished South Western Railway trains withdrawn [BBC News]

Date: 02/09/2019

Newly-refurbished trains have been withdrawn from service over fears they wrongly turn signals yellow or red. The 30-year-old Class 442 trains were reintroduced by South Western Railway (SWR) in June after a £45m upgrade. The firm said they had been taken out of service as a precaution due to an issue involving line-side signals.
