So that's what disrupted the trains yesterday - that's Greater Anglia's main line he crashed into - I was fixing something at Seven Kings and heard about the delays to the service.
When you say 'the driver walked off long later', he didn't disappear from the scene, did he
You'd think a Chelmsford operator would know the local streets in Chelmsford to avoid, wouldn't you? Plus the Overall Height is clearly displayed in the cab.
You had a lucky escape mate - puts my carbon monoxide poisoning by DLA231's broke exhaust into perspective He must have been going some when he hit the bridge
Well I'm not too sure, I could not find him 15 mins after this happened and other people were saying he just walked off
Trains were delayed for about 20 mins, The bridge was fine after being checked over by Network Rail within 10 mins of the bridge strike
That just sums up the company, I have never heard a good word about Regal Busways, They are cheap, cut corners (Well a roof in this case) and have very poorly maintained buses, I have always heard bad things about the running of this route (3) that they cut buses off it, and it frequently runs late which it was today 25 late when we hit

The London overground rail replacement from stratford when it's doing all stations, There is a bridge which you become meters from in the hackney wick area
I'm fine, as soon as I got off the bus I was taking pictures, Yes I was a bit shaken at the time but I am fine now Thanks
