    ... their notice doesn't say you can't use them - just a a diagramatic pic of mobile and laptop and it does say 240v.
    . £5.49 kettles |DO work. Missus decided it was okay to take the kettle home rather than try and shove it in to the bin, so it's sitting here talking to me.
    Three teas at the station would pay for the kettle , mugs and teabags. with lots to spare.

    You'd have to be a mug to try that one out :lol:

    It's just a shame London water is virtually unpotable!

    The steam may set off the smoke detector, it's happened before in a hotel I was in (which resulted in me finding out that they locate fire alarms in the walls between rooms - very loud indeed!)

    Just what i was thinking. That'd be an interesting trip, perhaps with Tornado.

    Tornado? Surely, as it's a bidirectional railway, lining up Duchess of Hamilton and one of the working A4s is the way forward

    But where on a steam train would you plug a kettle in?

    Or is that totally missing the point? ;)

    Continuing to miss the point, you could plumb in a connection to the steam heat pipes. Might take a while to boil a kettle though, especially if you're at the back of the train.
