DLR train fills with smoke on approach to Woolwich
Passengers on a DLR train last night saw smoke appear in a carriage as a train passed through tunnels approaching Woolwich.
Staff were seen examining the train and the incident follows smoke coming from a DLR train near Shadwell before Christmas.
TfL have not confirmed whether it was due to vandalism or a mechanical issue, though reliability of DLR stock has been poor in recent weeks – and the trains were never particularly reliable to begin with.
Many will be replaced as they are almost life-expired – though not until 2022 at the earliest.
