S:ROS Accident, why did it happen?

Saturday, August 11, 2001 5:08 PM
Honestly, I find it quite insulting that everytime I make a post, it gets yanked.
I made a very serious post on my thoughts about S:ROS and the accident, possibly being some sort of sabotage, and it was GONE when I came back to check replies. i really dont think this is fair at all. i've been replying to posts just fine, without a problem, but the last 2 times i've tried to start a SERIOUS topic, it has been pulled.
let me try this again. honestly, what is everyone's thoughts of the SROS accident?

Excuse me for being HUMAN. I'd like to know what happened. if it was some sort of sabotage, you're mindless and brainwashed because you're doing exactly what they want you to do. you're thinking the exact way they want you to think.
I don't take too kindly to being censored, or silenced, or being told that enough is ENOUGH. i never told you to shut up, or called YOU and idiot, did I?
I thank you for the response, however there are some of us out there who actually care what happened. The sensor may have failed, but it's not supposed to happen like that. there are redundant safety systems out the wazoo, and this is just un-explainable.

Actually, the sensor probably did not fail. The whole place where we got the "The sensor failed" idea was by a single post from a member who probably was just making it up. My guess is a wiring problem, but we'll just have to wait and see until when (actually, if) SF tells us.

Wait a second; your post is still here. Are you sure you just didn't see it?

i still think that the failed-sensor theory is rather stupid. you do realize that the sensors are checked every morning. and the computers monitor that sort of thing, so the ride would have been stopped before the train could get into the station

For the people who think a magnetic Brake cannot fail, STE fails all the time, and its magnetic braking, and its just rolls back all the way E brakes. So thats what i think happened. Brakeage failure.

As I and others have previously stated, if the control system is properly designed, a sensor failure will not result in a block violation.

The control system has to see the station sensor switch from full to empty and then see the lift hill sensor switch from empty to full before the next train is allowed to enter the station. Thus 2 sensors would have to fail a few seconds apart. They would have to fail station sensor first followed by the lift hill sensor. If the lift hill sensor failed first, the train would never be allowed to advance to the lift hill. And finally, the station sensor would have to fail to the empty position while the lift hill sensor failed to the full position. Oops, I also forgot that they would have to fail immediately after the dispatch button is pushed. The odds against this all of this happening are enormous.

The much more likely causes are a software problem, or a failure of the roller tire breaking mechanism following the magnetic brake.

Aha huh so you do belive it was just a braking problem just like me. Finally some one with some sense.

We really don't need more than one topic on the same subject started by the same person.
