High tech testing?

There was an interesting news story on Channel 7 News last night - a secret film of Connex' high tech testing of the Siemens brakes. A bit of tape, a bit of Nylex hose, off you go! Isn't there something in Bracks' water regulations to cover watering a train's brake pads only between 2:00am and 4:00am?

And what's the go on the European testing that Bruce Hughes is overseas supervising? Seems nobody over there knows anything about it. Surely Connex and the Bracks Government wouldn't be telling porky pies?

This public transport crisis seems to be descending into farce!
