Delays on the Reading-Shalford line today after a train hit a cow, sometime this morning (I wasn't on the train at the time). Not as bad as the recent floods on that line in terms of delays - though they were still effecting things 8 hours later. From this we conclude cows are not as bad as rain. How useful to know. Quite why a cow would want to throw itself under a train is a mystery. Maybe a political campaign?
