  1. Don’t you remember the London to Brighton in 1 minute – a b/w BBC interlude film. I loved it because we did the journey occasionally and if you were quick you could spot some landmarks.

  2. As a former trainspotter and wearer of an anorak I can say that it shows very clearly that 30% of the West Coast Main Line is curved track, hence the importance of introducing tilting trains that can run at speed on the curves.
