Update on my 10-month-old service/railway idea thread: It is now designated as PURELY FANTASY and my rendition of the railways in britain. I was not aware that the forum section was for speculation back then (most likely because I was only starting on the website), however, there are some spaces for Fantasy threads to be created on Speculative Ideas. I am very sorry if that thread made no sense at all.
If anyone knows what the prominent sort of screechy-sounding instrument in most - if not all - versions of the theme to "Doctor Who" is, I'd like to know... I just can't place it!
Some proof-reading and sanity checks would not go amiss on the National Rail website (example below:)
