With the continued disruption at Paddington due to the derailed unit that went through a set of traps and brought an OHLE gantry down.
Just wondering if anything of a Breakdown Crane might be seen here?
A large R/Rail crane has been photographed there but that was for the removal of the gantry.

For those of you with social media site 'Twitter' the recovery was tweeted by Network Rail Great Western Route @NetworkRailWest showing various stages using MFD equipment.
No recovery equipment at Old Oak Common these days with Didcot being the nearest base for road and road/rail vehicles although Transport For London also offers use of its "Emergency Response Unit" (Tube rolling stock Breakdown gang of old) for certain incidents.
All rerailed and turbo unit recovered over Saturday.
