Apparently in Florida a few years ago they were clearing a rail yard when they opened up a set of wagons that had been there for ages. Apparently it was full of supplies from the Spanish American war of 1898!
So, in the same 24 hour period, the Mirror informs us that 2 vandals were killed whilst trespassing on the tracks in East London, and then goes onto allow 2 of its journalists (I use the expression with some caution) to trespass on the tracks at Didcot, for an absolutely none-story.
No doubt the Mirror woud say the Didcot story was in the public interest.
Is that really the best that they can do?
The fcuking joke of this, is that there are so many stories that if covered properly by the Mirror (instead of just taking and printing what's on the Reuters feed), would probably win the paper acolades and support.
It wouldnt of had to of been a railway employee. quite often trainspotters (neds/gricers) and their secret info network know which trains are due where, being pulled by engine number XXXXX, when I used to man a B.R help-point they often used to call and ask me about services I had no idea were even running, If only we could get more of them to work for the railways we might start getting some trains running on time!
Mind you, whoever it was who sold the story is still a judas cnut.
