London 7/7: TFL, TrackerNet Images & Evidence Removal

Following on from yesterday's post which included TrackerNet images from 7 July 2005, The Antagonist set about finding the original source of the TrackerNet images in order to link to them directly.

Imagine The Antagonist's surprise (can you feel the irony?) when it turned out that the very same TrackerNet schematics published below, those which are still referred to in the original Transport For London press release from whence they came, had disappeared from the Transport for London Image Gallery.

From the TFL press release:
Six images are available in the News Centre. The first three images show the sequence of train movements prior to and including the explosion at Aldgate. The remaining three show the sequence of train movements prior to and including the explosion at Edgware Road. [TFL]

So, in the true spirit of Freedom of Information, here they are again - still without timestamps because, to the best of The Antagonist's knowledge, we still don't know what time the trains actually left Kings Cross on the morning of 7 July.

7 July: TFL TrackerNet Images & Captions

Some additional information about the TrackerNet schematics:
Using Trakernet, a computerized system that monitors trains on some lines, controllers could see that as Train 204 traveled between Liverpool Street and approached Aldgate, it came to a sudden stop with pink lines on their screens indicating a power surge. [International Herald Tribune]

Pink Lines = Power surge.
The first bomb to detonate was on the Liverpool Street train soon after it left for Aldgate on the Circle line, seconds before the others. The blast tripped out the power system, visible in the control room. [WikiNews]

And:
The Edgware Road train, leaving for Paddington and also on the Circle, exploded opposite a train coming from the other direction, making people think at first that it was a derailment. [WikiNews]

A little more information to throw into the already explosive-for-all-the-wrong-reasons mix and to help piece together the TrackerNet images above.

Remember, the official story is that the alleged bombers are meant to have caught the trains from Kings Cross after catching the 7.40am from Luton that did not run that morning.

The information below comes direct from those radical and subversive organisations known as 'Transport for London' and the 'Government Office for London'.

-------------------------------
Transport for London
Update: 14:25 - 7 July2005


Latest information confirms that there were four incidents on London's transport network this morning, three on London Underground and one on London Buses.

At 09:46 the London Underground was suspended and all stations commenced evacuation following incidents at:

* Aldgate station heading towards Liverpool Street station on the Hammersmith & City line;

* Russell Square station heading towards Kings Cross station on the Piccadilly line;

* Edgware Road station heading towards Paddington station on the Hammersmith & City line
-------------------------------

9.46am when the London Underground was suspended! That's four minutes short of an hour after the 'official' 8.50am simultaneous explosions on the Underground and at almost PRECISELY the same time as this Number 30 bus rolled into and exploded in Tavistock square leave a number of unanswered questions

Update: Terrorist Attacks on the Capital

Published: 08/07/05

-------------------------------

The following details have been provided by the Metropolitan Police as an outline of events on Thursday 7 July 2005.

* At 08.15 on 7 July there was an explosion in a train carriage 100 yards from Liverpool Street Sation.

* At 08.56 there was another incident as Kings Cross/ Russell Square. Both stations were used to bring out casualties. At Kings Cross there were 7 confirmed fatalities, 10 people seriously injured and 100 walking wounded.

* At 09.17 there was an explosion on a train coming into Edgeware Road underground station approximately 100 yards into the tunnel. Five fatalities were confirmed.

* At 09.47 a bus exploded at Upper Woburn Sqaure junction with Tavistock Place. At present the number of fatalities has not been confirmed.
-------------------------------

TFL and the Government Office for London list three separate explosions on the Underground that did not happen simultaneously on trains that were going TOWARDS Kings Cross.

Questions still remain as to what the two trains labelled '000' are doing 'loading up' and 'blocking' Edgware Road station Eastbound (images 4, 5 and 6) as well the '000' train heading from Paddington to an already fully-loaded Edgware Road Station and which appears alongside train #216 Westbound which we are told is the train that exploded (image 6).

Additional information regarding the operation of the Circle line from a 7/7 related newsgroup posting:

"Trains 201 to 207 run clockwise round the Circle. They should be in order - that is, if you stay on one platform you should see 201 arrive, then 202 (perhaps with non-Circle trains between), then 203, and so on. They originate from various places in the 05:00 to 06:00 timescale. They don't start from the depot in numerical order; rather, they will have starting times and initial moves to get them into order. Trains 211 to 217 run anti-clockwise in the same way.

[Note 2*0*x for the *O*uter track and 2*1*x for the *I*nner track.]"
