Not exactly fun, but I decided to go for a ride out after duty, after putting one away at West Ruislip because of weird messages on DTS, I phoned my DMT and he told me to consider my duty finished [I would have gone back to White City and finished but the train [leading car 91257] had other ideas. Anyways, I gets off at Langer Hane, and walks to Park Royal. My mate's on the handle, so a quick blast on the whistle lets me know it's fine for me to join him. An uneventful journey to South Harrow. Just before Rayners Lane, theres this footbridge, and we approach at 10mph. I noticed a group of 5 chavs on the steps of said footbridge, four of them sitting swigging drink and smoking, one standing. Something told me we were in trouble. "John, I think you'd better wa..." SPLAT!!! Right across the M door window. My mate dropped the handle and went to open the M door, instead, he thought twice. We'd already had one egg [thankfully thats all it was]. These kids started jumping up and down, cheering and acting like demented windmills. As we were going to Uxbridge, I had the idea of popping into a shop and buying one of the super soaker water pistols. John agreed I should do so. Laughs all round as to our intentions on the return trip. It was not to be, because there was so little time, and my feeling that they'd have got totally bored by the time we got back. Sure enough, with me on the handle and the side door open, we approached the same footbridge...they'd gone! Drat!!! Oh well, there's always another time!
