London Underground is lying about the service on the Bakerloo Line

In partnership with the RMT (National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers), Britain's fastest growing trade union, representing more than 80,000 members in almost every sector of the transport industry, from mainline and underground rail to shipping and offshore, buses and road-freight.

London Underground (LU) wants Bakerloo line drivers to drive out-of-service trains into depots and sidings without checking first that all passengers have got off the train. This has resulted in over 3,000 passengers being carried into depots and sidings, many times more than on all other London Underground lines put together. On other lines, staff physically check the train is empty first. Last September, a 12-year-old boy got out of a train that had carried him into Queen's Park depot. He wandered around on live track until he was rescued by the driver. He could easily have been killed. After the Queen's Park incident, drivers decided that they were no longer prepared to go along with London Underground's dangerous policy and since 15 January 2013, have been insisting on checking that trains are empty before taking them into sidings and depots.
