Glancey goes loco

  • Comment

Ibumped into Jonathan Glancey in the always-pleasant surroundings of the St John bar in Smithfield. He tells me he is off to Inner Mongolia later this year, for a 600km railway journey on a steam locomotive. What's more, he plans to drive the loco himself.

Can this be serious? Yes, he has a licence to pilot planes, drive buses and heavy goods vehicles, it is true.

Now he shows me his international steam locomotive driving licence, which he has obtained in Poland, complete with a slightly locolooking identification photograph.

Will wonders ever cease?
