Re: TGV software woes
It is not just TGVs that have that problem.
I remember a good few years back I was on the Heathrow Express, somewhere near the junction off the main line we coasted to a gentle stop. After a while the train then went totally dark and gradually things came back on.
After another few mins the driver came over the tannoy and apologised telling us the train had crashed. Took a few moments to realise he meant the software not that we had hit something. He also apologised that he couldn't tell us what was going on earlier as the fault had also stopped the tannoy.
Once everything had rebooted we set off on our way to Heathrow marvelling in the wonders of the newish Siemens train we were on and how it could crash and stop everything working whilst running.
