Aqueducts are beautiful.

They have trains running over them. For a UKian, it's quite a stirring sight - to see trains running.

That's because rural and outer urban trains in the UK would never run on such narrow trackbeds because they actually run at higher speeds than the equivalent French lines with higher quality rolling stock and the same reliability levels.

I have been 186mph on a train. It wasn't in the UK.

I agree though with the non-mainlines bit. I have taken the train to Bourg St Maurice to go snowboarding (it's easy - just change at Waterloo) and the last part of the journey is fucking slow. Still, it's quicker than flying and quicker than driving.

Not on a train that ended its journey in the UK, though.
