Bletchley derailment and use of Twitter

This morning Network Rail and the WCML TOCs have been showing how twitter can be an effective passenger communications tool during disruption.

A special plaudit to @NetworkRail who sent out the following photo to show the scale of the recovery work required at Bletchley:

A lesson in effective use of social media.

Meanwhile Eye's thoughts are with the driver of the loco who is in hospital with serious, although apparently not life threatening, injuries.

UPDATE: A further image from NR showing damage to track and OHLE...

Eye understands that the Virgin driver has now been released from hospital.
