This from the Metro (with a bowler tip to Obnoxio)


UPDATE: This just in from a Mr Gregory...

Construction of Paddington started in 1850 but the station didn't actually open until 1854.

You can't spank a train to a station that isn't open yet.

However, as we now have a Paddington I suggest that Geoff Hoon tries recreating this task as a form of penance.

I know - I need to get out more.
