    Like the video. Interesting to see the injector wasting all over the 3rd rail but no sparks and bangs.

    I'm sure Herbert Walker checked that out when he decided to use third rail electrification, in 1912.........

    It was good to see so many folk join the train at Bath at teatime minutes after the Belmond British Pullman called to pick up passengers for London Victoria.

    Lovely to see wisps of steam, from along the train from the steam heat system!

    Remember it often from when I was a kid. Always assumed it was earthing safely somehow through the wheels/rails.

    There's a semi-decent pub at the end of the road to Hedge End... I should know, it's my local pub!
