Good one!
There was no impact between a tram and a rail, at 43.5 or 0.435 mph. You know it.

More funerals, though the ones of Robert Huxtable and "Mark Smith[/b] seemed to have gone off, peculiarly, with no media coverage.
Yesterday (Thursday) Philip Seary's funeral took place at St Edward's Church, in New Addington.
Moving tributes paid at funeral of tram crash victim Donald Collett

Funeral service provided by Francis Chappell & Sons of Orpington.

One of his two daughters, Tracy Angelo, [37] read out a wonderful eulogy... at Beckenham Crematorium... "I'm so grateful that dad came to Las Vegas with me and walked me down the aisle to give me away to my husband Matt..... Mr Collett, 62, grew up in Penge before moving to Sydenham and Orpington in his later years and was living in Croydon when he died.
He worked as a limousine driver for many years and Mrs Angelo fondly remembered the rides he'd give to her sister, Gemma, and their mum.

She said the job he was happiest in was the one he was doing at the time of his death, which was a driver for security firm G4S and she talked of the wonderful holidays he had shared with his partner Wendy Parnacott.

Mr Collett's sister Paula Phillips read out a heartbreaking tribute remembering her eldest brother....

Dorota Rynkiewicz was the other victim of the disaster. Her funeral was going to be in Poland, but it isn't clear if it has already taken place.
Perhaps the haze of uncertainty will lift?

Robert Huxley's took place on Wednesday, Mark Smith's was on Monday, Philip Logan's took place last Thursday and Dane Chinnery's took place last Wednesday

A beautiful service for my wonderful uncle Don. My daughter and I are the ones who left the flowers on his coffin as we bid my amazing uncle farewell. My uncle was the most loving man and had the kindest heart. He'd be so proud of his daughters my cousins Tracy and Gemma and he'd be amazed at how many people lives he touched and how loved he was. My dad and Don were best friends really and I use to call them Fred(dad) and Barney(Don) as they were always together like the characters in the Flintstones. Every day my dad tells me a new story about my uncle and they will remain in my memory until we meet again. Fly high with the angels uncle Donny sleep well until we meet again you'll be in our hearts and minds ???????????? We love you

Philip "Tank" Seary December 2 2016
same fuzzy image of a man much younger.
His daughters, Karina [Mimms] and Erica [Heglan], read out beautiful tributes
Family and friends were asked by Father Jonathan Easton-Crouch to take a moment to remember Mr Seary while the song Don’t Know Much by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville played.
We certainly don't.
The red and blue coffin was then taken out of the church to Jon Bon Jovi’s It’s My Life before the family and close friends went to a service at Croydon Crematorium.
In the order of service, his wife Ann said: “Thank you to everyone that has shown so much love and support these past weeks, we are proud of the way Phil connected with you all, and the amazing amount of appreciation he has received from you all.
But back to the "crash" scene.

I'd say the house at #2 Sandilands was a key place for a "witness" story or a staging point, the large white property with extensive garden overlooking the scene:!3m1!1e3

We see and hear no witness though. No problem with that, but who lives there?

Quite a scoop, having a fatal tram crash in one's back garden, surely?
