Re: Tube

If you think it's just stop and go then get along to your nearest heritage railway, pay for one of their driver experiences and show the instructor driver how it's done! Controlling 300 tons of train is a little more complicated than a 1-2 ton family car.

Mines the one with the big bag of popcorn (and flask of weak lemon drink natch).

As for steering - drivers are still expected to observe the road ahead and watch for points that haven't gone over correctly or have failed (think Potters Bar).
