Likely to be delays all day to trains passing through Feltham today.

Shortly after midnight a car crashed through the barriers at Feltham West and collided with the control equipment for the barriers on the other side completely destroying them.

Trains are now having to be stopped and talked over the crossing leading to delays of up to ten minutes.

In order to reduce congestion trains to and from Windsor & Eton Riverside have been suspended with tickets being honoured via Windsor & Eton Central and London Paddington.

Level crossing now mended - or rather rebuilt - well done that crew! In the end SWR ran a hourly service, initially as a Staines shuttle and then after a couple of hours to Waterloo. So at least a lot of people were saved a very cold miserable Sunday.

Not a new thing. at Waterloo in the early 60s one of the biggest files was Sunnigdale "Carr Hit Gates". If you know Sunnigdale the line emerges between the shops and  crosses the dead straight A30 which in the days before the M3 was the major route to Southampton and the West.

Went totether with Weymouth Quay "Car hit by Train"
