Default GOBLIN derailment: RAIB investigation

In message , at 15:37:35 on

About a week ago, a staff member at Leyton Midland Road Station
told me all the track between Wanstead Park and Walthamstow
Queens Road is going to be replaced. They have obviously already
started because yesterday I saw track working equipment on the
railway bridge over Hainault Road.

Although investigating how this occurred is necessary, my main
concern at present is to get the line repaired and re-opened.


We certainly can't wait for the RAIB report, because that takes
typically 8-12 months.


Yes, but how long did they take to inspect the site before turning it
over to the gangs to remove all the track, and with it, the evidence?


That's something we rarely get a metric for.
