Thomas the Tank Engine lobotomised by fat (remote) controller


The Victoria Line, which opened in 1968 IIRC, has always been completely automated - all the driver does is close the doors and push two "start" buttons simultaneously; everything else is under machine control. One suspects that the only reason the driver is actually there is for the PR to the passengers... and possibly some input from ASLEF.
