Have you ever seen a famous person on a Southeastern Train? Seems unlikely, doesn’t it? However, I have seen one! I saw Jonathan Pryce, star of Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil”, on a High Speed Service to Broadstairs. He looked tired. No doubt, he had been trapped on that overcrowded train since the release of “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen”. I did not ask him how he managed to survive on the train for so long; he was busy reading – probably a survival manual. Now, I know what you’re thinking – “But Cameron – High Speed service didn’t exist when ‘Baron Munchausen’ was released!”. I think what happened is he fell asleep on a regular train sometime after the release of the film, back in 1988. Without waking him, Southeastern carefully tore down his train and built a new high speed train around him. One morning, he awoke to find himself on a completely different train – trapped for the rest of his natural life. This is the only explanation that makes sense. Now we know why celebrities don’t travel on Southeastern.
