Train to Nowhere

      My network has a fire on trackside today. This seems to happen a few times a year and always means a whole load of disruption.

      Putting your money on nature is usually the safest best. Ultimately there will be a time when its triumph is complete and there will be nowhere to collect your winnings from.
