I noticed that, and the Indians need to put there horses in the Cheltenham Gold Cup with the speed they go

There was a Virgin advert that showed someone waving to someone in the train. I dont know how but I find it difficult to see people in the train when the VT goes past at 90mph.

If I remember rightly, a Super Voyager was used and made up to look like a pendo, with the use of decals and the magic of special effects, Im sure it was filmed on a hertitage railway somewhere

The first one is a rather strange advert for a train company. It's got nothing to do with trains at all! :|

I thought this one was quite good. Completely unrealistic but still good. It was even better when they made this "revised" version.

That does have to be amongst the very best ads ever made, in my opinion, but I am always a little bit depressed that anything like that filmed now would be less "Britain's Railway" and more "The Railway Companies and Different Government Agencies Bickering Whilst Things Go Wrong". Still, it's fantastic to watch, and the filming (not done by rail, shall we say) and the soundtrack are simply superb.
