Runaways and Bollywood Films | Last Week in Trains

A train ran away last week. It was on the front page of the Metro and everything. This taught us lots of things – like the BBC can make computer generated recreations of these incidents really quickly (click here and scroll down to the video). The Southeastern London to Hastings train was travelling at 65mph when it slipped. It slid for 2.5 miles. Luckily no one was injured.

Director Farah Khan launched the music for her forthcoming film, Tees Mahr Khan on board a train last week. The film is about a conman who masterminds a train robbery.
