    Thanks for the positive post. I think the terminology of the moment is Doomsters and Gloomsters. I am sure that there are some who revel at the potential of a problem associated with a steam locomotive be it fire risk or any other risk.

    Lets wait for facts. Shame about TBE though.

    If this was at Langport then it was an embankment not a structure according to the fire service.

    No revised times in RTT for the trip back yet. I guess there will be many who may miss their last trains if the arrival at Paddington is 90 to 120 later than planned.
