I was coming into Reading on a North Down's service today and we got held outside Reading for a few minutes; when we arrived unfortunately it looked like an SWR» (South Western Railway - about) service had collided with the buffer stops on platform 5. Some superficial damage to the front of the class 450.

Yes, a low speed collision this morning.  No injuries.
