Memorial marks Paddington crash.

I was living in Reading during much of 1999, and commuting to London each morning by train. The train that I usually took was the one before the train that crashed at Ladbroke Grove - but it wasn't unusual for me to be running a little late. I probably caught it once a week or so. But by October, I had moved to Colliers Wood.

My friend Amanda was on that train, and she was in coach H. She was lucky to live, but she was hardly unscathed. (You might need BugMeNot to get to that page.)

I never read about Ladbroke Grove without a shiver.
