Yes, that's the latest problem to hit the unfortunate GOBLin.


"Eight bridges were also damaged"

Holy crap!


Whatever if any warning systems there are on the train to warn the driver
of a possible derailment clearly didn't work if it took him 2 miles to
notice since if the freight on the Goblin runs at the same speed as the NLL
then it was probably trundling along at under 30mph so could have stopped
fairly quickly.


Although it goes under 8 bridges in 600 metres in Walthamstow.
