M Ted, that deserves a Golden Anorak (Britain's highest train-spotting award)! I live in a coutnry where if you go from the capirtalk, London, to the "Second City", Birmingham, you have to get off the train at Bletchley and transfer to a bus to Northampton and get back on the train; and if you want to go from the North to London, you have to take the crowded London train -- you can't get on the near-empty Eurostar and get off at Waterloo Station, you have to stay on till Calais.
