british locamotives/ on a coach holiday in scotland last year we visited an underground hydro power station in conversation the driver said his brother had worked on a site in scotland where old steam trains where cacooned in underground sidings in the event of a nuclear war  a steam train could still function and provide transport fact or fiction who knows?
