An Inpsector Calls

Sixteen members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) are in London today, to review progress of preparations for the 2012 London Olympic games.

It fair to say that they are hoping that the furore over the logo will have died down a bit, clearly they don't know/understand the tabloid press in this country very well!

The Olympic commissioners will be the first passengers on a test train trying out the seven-minute shuttle between Stratford International Station, in East London, and the new St Pancras International Station.

They will be travelling by a Eurostar train, because the new high speed javelin trains are not yet in operation.

During the Games this service is in theory going to transport 25,000 passengers an hour.

Given the state of the rail network in this country, that is quite a gamble.
