    There is trespassing and there is trespassing. If you are going to get within the regulation 2m from the running line on a 125mph line it might be worth looking the right way for approaching trains before you do it! These sort of people shouldn’t be be allowed out on their own.

    That's a remarkable pace at Kirkby Stephen. I know that BIL was just entering a short less steep section south of the station but it's 1 in 100 either side.
