True or false, I don't know how they would know something like that, last I checked emergency services were still dealing with this. Alton Towers PR need to spend less time answering idiot teens asking when the ride will be open moaning there day is ruined.
I couldn't care less if an empty train stalled, what I want to understand is how another carriage entered the same section of track, between breaking points. Sensor failure, system control failure. Without stating the plain obvious, it shouldn't be possible. I can't see it being "Operator Failure" in any circumstance, only an engineer key would be able to override certain safety systems, i.e manually engage a lift, etc.
The second minor related question is why was an empty carriage going around at the time, that would imply a previous issue and clearing the carriages through.
