On The Loose In North London: Flying Gazebo Causes Train Delays

The title of this post, is the same as that of this news item on Network Rail.

These paragraphs outline the story.

Residents are being urged to keep garden objects tied down and away from the railway after a flying gazebo caused 60 trains to be delayed or cancelled on Friday.

Passengers on London Overground trains running between Gospel Oak and Barking experienced disruption for around three hours. Freight trains were also affected.

The gazebo was reported to be blocking the line between Upper Holloway and Crouch Hill stations at around 0945 and trains had to be stopped while it was recovered by a Network Rail response unit.

In total, the incident caused 15 full train cancellations, 8 part cancellations and delays to 37 trains.

There is also this picture of the remains of the errant gazebo.

At least it appears, that the gazebo didn’t bring the wires down.
