We're being held at Hungerford awaiting inspection by a Mobile Operations Manager.

Will he/she be frisking passengers for extra cans of Tribute?
Why "he/she"? MOM (Mobile Operations Manager) can only be she!

Hope your delay isn't too long/arduous BNM.

Why? Because BNM has had to downgrade to Carlsberg?

Does that count as a railway bridge? It goes under the main entrance to the station, with only pedestrians and a few vehicles in the building on top.

Not sure why the Argus is trying to contact Brighton and Hove Buses. That bus looks to be from Go-Ahead London. Brighton and Hove Buses is also owned by Go-Ahead though.

No, this isn't a railway bridge, but it might as well be! From the BBC» (British Broadcasting Corporation - home page), three days ago:
Quote
Lorry hits Widnes road gantry in rush hour crash


The top of the lorry, apparently a tipper truck, was left leaning on the gantry

A lorry has crashed into a road gantry, leaving part of the vehicle propped up against the structure and causing widespread delays.

It happened on the A562 Speke Road in Widnes, Cheshire, at about 06:40 GMT, police said.

Nobody was injured but work is under way to remove the lorry part and check the gantry, near the Hale Road slip road, for stability.

Another bridge strike at Langley

Assuming that the Reading Chronicle has used the correct picture, it looks like the same bridge that has been struck several times before.

Yep Langley Station Bridge is one of the regulars.

I see Modern Railway has takenb up one of my Magdeburg solutions, a rigid RSJ (Rolled Steel Joist, which can also be called ) at bridge height a few metres in front ot the bridge.

It's  a pity more bridges are protected by my second solution of 600Volt tram wires. But then we are anti tram in this country.
