Short video from Noel Dolphin's Twitter ac : twitter.com/NoelDolphin
If you know him report it to BTP. God help the poor driver of the service train if they had hit him.

Although an idiotic video, I'm sure it's a few years old. A quick YouTube search finds at least one version of it dated five years ago.

That's a few years old now, was taken at Thurston. Have the pleasure of working with the driver of the 170 who frequently gets warned by colleagues when a rail tour is in the vicinity nowadays as she seems to be magnetised to slightly less aware spotters!:roll:

Did they ever identify the idiot in question? I recall there was a bit of a hue and cry at the time to identify him.

Would that be the worlds most famous train driver? :D

But yes, old old video. I think he's still around on the scene. I seem to recall seeing him at Weybourne last year maybe?

As this video is so old, and has been around the internet for ages, including on this forum, this thread is now locked
