Electric buses at waterloo
There was an article in the Evening Standard last night about the bus garage near waterloo that has europes largest fleet of battery electric buses. Apparently they had to install their own "generator". Now knowing the quality of journalism in the standard I wonder if they meant generator or substation because if its the former it completely defeats the point of having electric buses in central...

An opera about London buses
I have just discovered that in 2005 Michael Nyman did an opera called "Man & Boy: Dada" which includes tracks called "A Few Things I Collect Beside Bus Tickets" and "This Was A Good One - Ponders End To Waterloo" .... the latter obviously being a reference to the 149 bus. I'm a massive fan of his earlier work but think he was past his sell-by date in 2005. I haven't listened to this one yet,...

Electric black cabs
I've seen them on the streets for a while up until now from a distance. Today I saw one up close - they're pretty big brutes. Bigger than a current diesel cab and bigger , though lower , than a range rover I suspect. I'm sure thats nice for the cabbie and the passengers but it can't help the range much dragging that much mass about.

Usual no progress at Waterloo...
Very little seems to have happened there since I last had a look. They've filled in some holes in the floor and cut a hole in the railway deck for some steps. That seems to be about it. Either they're building a secret underground government bunker under there or NR and their contractors are the most useless pillocks ever to wear flourescent jackets because in the last year 4 towers, 2 of them...

Heat effect on rails
It seem that some UK train are running slow as the warm weather is having an effect o the track. How do other countries manage to run trains including High Speed when the weather is hot yet the UK cannot. I have travelled on trains in Spain at the height of summer and there is no problems with heat affecting the tracks.
