    Heh!
    Thanks.
    Come on in.
    The first half of my post describes my experience on the day - the second half is the clue.
    It is exactly the same as the name of a landlocked Central African Republic...

    ETA - you're pretty close with "clipping" - what's the proper name of a clipping?

    I was in the last coach on a Southeastern train not so long ago which, as it pulled away from the platform, had a couple of lads run alongside, and jump on to the back of the train (which is pretty smooth, and yellow). They jumped off when we arrived at the next station. This was in broad daylight, somewhere like Brixton or Herne Hill - I forget which.

    I wonder whether its broken because there are more people going on there to see if it has crashed, than there are people going on there to sign the petition....

    Old.
    Ventilation shaft for Brunel's tunnel under the Thames, the first under-river tunnel, ever.
    Today, the Ginger Line runs through it.
    Located just north of Wapping Woods.

    New.
    On a windy day, blown out from above - its what you'll get from a ticket inspector's punch.

    Out of interest Ryan, what happens to Brompton's warranty when SJS retrofit someone else's parts to a new bike?

    ^ This. You'll be in the offy long enough for someone to liberate your high-resale-value bike.
