Not only had the trains failed but the toilets on many stopped working and there was no air conditioning. Needless to say the windows no longer open on newer trains. (I think Mk 3 carriages in HST sets were the last to be built with opening windows in the vestibules. Those windows are currently being removed as part of compliance with disability laws.)
