Regarding unpolished business in the railroads

Reading Time: 1 minute

 
The ex state owned railroads company VR (or Valtion Rautatiet) is having a bad
winter in 2009-2010. The company has faced many challenges, and the latest
being an accident where 4 passenger cars crashed into a hotel building at
a speed of approximately 20-30 km/h in downtown Helsinki (Rautatientori).
In addition the company is decreasing some lines, with the expected
effect that customer satisfaction will decrease also. It seems like there
has been some strategic errors in technology selection, or the daily operations
are underplanned. In plain English, VR is now in a sorry state.

It comes in conjunction with Finnair’s (Finnish airline) latest big mess with luggage
delivery. So, if you are traveling within or to or from Finland, expect some
delays and fuss. Otherwise, I think you are in safe hands.

Wash and works!
These plugs went into the washing machine, and went there for
about 45 minutes in 50-60 degree celsius. I was slightly curious
about how the plugs would after the experience. Well, after
they were clean and dry, no problem! Seems all 10 octaves are
still there. Fantastic quality.
