Teh "Gore Effect" has new victims -- Chunnel Trains

Five trains stopped running tunnel in the past two days stranding passengers for as long as 16 hours

Eurostar rail services were suspended for a second day on Sunday as the company investigated why six trains carrying more than 2,500 passengers broke down, five of them in an undersea tunnel linking Britain and France...

...technical faults caused by snow and sub-zero temperatures, Eurostar said.

I wonder what sort of technical faults having the tunnel openings covered with glaciers are going to cause? Stadials in the past have demonstrated onset with dramatic speed...like significant cooling during periods as short as only 10 or 20 years.

U.N.P.R.E.C.E.D.E.N.T.E.D.

I give the system designers a B+.
