Hi all, reporting here from KX internet Cafe.

Me, 50149 and SPM have not long witnessed a major fire at Willsden at the Intermodal Termnal, some way from Junction station but highly visible.

It has cut off the power and all trains were cut off power, however the low level was running (and signal failures occuring apparently) but the High LEvel is shut as power has been cut off, no news if power is re-gained, also so a 321 stuck at Queens Park as well.



James.

Just outside the Black Country
Lineside fire at Harlesden apparently, services terminating at Watford Junction with Silverlink Metro running Class 313s to Euston ferrying all Virgin and Silverlink passengers on the DC lines which have different substations and are so far unaffected.

Good job I travelled between Coventry & Preston just after lunchtime then, instead of mid-afternoon, as originally planned!

Yes, apparantly 57314 failed with brake problems at Hellifield, whilst dragging 390 001 on 1M14. 57305 came and dragged the service forward.

Gen from Virgin Trains Yahoo Group. (So please don't blame me If it's wrong)
