The long and winding road...

Marylebone Road was horribly screwed up this afternoon because there was a big fire in (I think) a car park behind a garage a couple of blocks from Baker Street Station. Fortunately I walked home, but I noticed that (for example) I wasn't passed by any buses until I'd crossed Edgware Road; normally there are a couple a minute, and what happened at Edgware Road was that they were turning the east-bound 18 buses around and sending them back towards Sudbury. I must have passed a hundred or so people waiting for buses before I reached that point, I suspect some are still waiting.

Something I've never noticed before was the upper sign below, at the start of the Marylebone Flyover which leads to the A40. I'm pretty sure it's a new addition, have to wonder what prompted them to put it up...
