    I realise this doesn't fit in with the TOC theme, but I'm working for the police today, here are what they are currently riding across the pond!

    Fascinating stuff @filmonger.
    I've often wondered if he was assisted by the shape of the "hood" attached to the train with twin vortices of air assisting in pushing him along. We'll never know I guess, I wonder how far out they stretched those 'hankies'?
    Still an incredible, hair-raising stunt though.
