Farmers to support HS2?

This from Eye's friends at Merseyrail...

If you're not familiar with 3rd rail systems, the message below would cause you to imagine all sorts of weird scenarios:

Sun 22 May at 12.49 hrs: Services from Chester meeting with delay due to being tripped by a dead badger between Bache and Capenhurst. MOM en-route.

Sadly it looks as if old Brock strayed too close to the conductor rail.

Ratty and Mole will no doubt need counseling?

On the plus side, Eye understands that the NFU will shorty come out in favour of HS2 - providing it's 3rd rail...
