Hello tc and welcome to our forum.

Bridge bash in Winchester.

Seriously, another one? WTF. Apparently a double-deck school bus has hit a railway bridge. A parent has suggested that the driver was "new and unfamiliar with the route."

So does this mean that...

Hi Tony. Absolutely none taken. I always enjoy our discussions.

I hadn't appreciated that it was part of AS's post you were commenting on.

As usual, the media has hyped this and whipped up the...

Not sure who that was directed at, but that's not what I was suggesting. A train driver is required to drive at full speed when running under clear aspects. Any less than that and they'll be pulled...

Ouch, I didn't realise it was going that quickly. It explains alot. :(

Maybe it would be a good idea in future for trains to run at caution whenever a landslide has occurred anywhere on the line?...

I believe that this was a short-form HST, so there was a cab at either end. So the driver would have been driving normally. I've heard that the train was turned back from a first landslide, so I...

Yes it absolutely is. There's a very real risk of injury or death to anyone on the train, particularly if the line speed is significant.

I was led to believe that you only derail a train if...

Is that a joke?
If not, it'll be because the last person (fitter/driver/etc) to drop the panel didn't tighten the screws fully.
Been there, done that - had a panel swing into my face. Not a big...

Yes, signs & signals that don't apply should be either bagged up or removed. I don't suppose this rates very highly on NR's 'To Do' list though.

Good stuff, MC. It's nice to be able to keep doing something which maintains the semblance of 'normal' life.

The Health Service is getting a lot of publicity now, and quite rightly so.
