It’s Friday but we know that for many @se_railway
passengers, it’s not been a happy one, after problems at #Lee and #Lewisham
last night. Many people have asked us about #Lewisham so here is a VERY LONG
THREAD with some colourful diagrams to leaven the technical detail. 1/
#Lewisham is the confluence of several routes + the pic
below is the immediate area. The track and signalling dates from the 60s-70s and it has been busy in all that time. Control has been moved to Three Bridges and the kit is constantly being maintained and worked on. 2/
Because of its location, trains through Lewisham can
suffer delay caused elsewhere and congestion builds as trains queue
for a slot onto the London Bdg approach (pic). That part of the railway is reliable now and congestion caused by problems
elsewhere is the issue there. 3/

Problem w #SusanCollins's evidentiary standard for sex assault claims - in vast majority of cases, only two are present. In many older cases, there isn't contemporaneous corroborating testimony, just friends, family, therapists who can attest as to when vic first disclosed. 1/
#BelieveWomen is trite, unconstitutional nonsense. We can't simply believe everything every woman claims now becs women & girls' reports too often haven't been taken seriously. We just need to take reports seriously. Which requires investigation in order to build a case vs perp 2
We need to safeguard due process, becs each of us will need it if/when we're accused of violating a law. And no, a mere allegation, w/out more, can't be enough to find guilt. Some people make false claims for malicious purpose. It happens. 3/
