You're still missing the point. As Ian says, the CCTV will NOT stop another accident from happening. This shouldn't be "advertised" as a mechanism for stopping future accidents.Bicko said:Did the ride operators know the other train had got stuck? No.
If they had camera's installed on the ride to see where the train was stuck and why it hadnt returned, would they have continued to send another train, knowing it would cause an accident? No they had no idea, they sent the train clearly thinking a collison wasnt going to happen.
The ops didn't notice the train hadn't returned and continued to send out a second train. CCTV will only help if they go "I'd best check the CCTV to see if the train is stuck". From a system point of view, it's waiting for something to go wrong before you can make a decision to action the problem.
The only safe system is the one which eliminates the chance of a problem all together. CCTV does not do this. Safe dispatching does (and doesn't cost anything time wise).
I've read that there's to be a new system in place and that's fine - that is the correct solution. I'm really just being pedantic. CCTV seems to be "the saviour" when in reality it does nothing to increase safety (though it would certainly help if a train gets stuck again in asking for help).
If it opens with CCTV and they are still dispatching two cars at once (one on the track, the other out of the station) - then I would recommend to everyone NOT to go on the ride, it is simply an unsafe procedure.
