the line they were travelling on between Sheffield and London has no 125mph sections.

So what? A couple of Southwest pilots did travelling three times faster.

Now don't get me wrong you wouldn't catch me butt naked on a train but surely these trains have autopilot things on them? Why would getting your kit off be "playing russian roulette with passengers' lives"?
|Quoting Scbriml (Reply 10):|
I'm no sad anorak of a train-spotter (that's self deprecating humour by the way!), but I think all UK trains have to be driven with the driver depressing/operating a "dead man's handle" otherwise brakes are automatically applied. So unless they're very good at undressing with just one hand while still operating the DMH (maybe a new version of Twister?), it might imply that they somehow "cheated" the DMH. Now that would be dangerous and certainly justify disciplinary action.

The dead-mans handle is actually a foot pedal
