Don't whale, Laura....

The HB doesn't think he's alone in relishing the atmospheric qualities of railway stations on winter evenings.

Echoes of Brief Encounter, perhaps?

At Birmingham's Moor Street Station one wouldn't be surprised to find Laura and Alec gazing tensely at one another, paralysed with Cowardian anguish.

Mind you, with the new Selfridges store looming over the scrupulously restored Victorian railway architecture, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd stumbled into a sci-fi version of Moby Dick.

Brief Encounter meets Moby Dick?

That'd be a challenge for Mr Spielberg.
