    sorry the 4 foot is the space between the rails, even though its actually 4 foot 8 and a half inches between rail heads, in the uk, never lie here as the AWS magnet will kill you as it hangs down about 8 inches above the ballast, the space im lying in is actually the cess, as for egg sandwiches seems to be a thing when i was younger to eat them on the end of the platform with a thermos of tea,Ah the good old days.Pness , Milton keynes central was the first or second major inter- city station built since nationalisation, of the railways, the other being Birmingham international, further up the line.XCstumpy, go on come out of the cab, youre a secret egg butty muncher, and theres no inuendo meant there.

    I like trains and especially steam trains. I stood on the platform of Northfield station as a kid and a stream express went through at full speed - very impressive. The night sleeper to Paris and various TGVs are my current favourites. Train travel is so civilised compared with flying or driving and I love watching the countryside flash by.
