A look at some of UK's busiest train stations.
The British Transport Police mount a special operation to stop criminals who are running drugs out of the capital. A crack has been discovered on a rail joint at Acton East - if it snaps, it could be fatal. At Paddington, a passenger has fallen between the train and the platform, while at Bristol, a BTP officer must talk down a potentially suicidal woman.
A nasty surprise awaits engineers as they discover rotten wooden sleepers that disintegrate under foot. Even veteran train staff are shocked by the reason the 15:00 to Bristol has come to a halt - a driver tried to start the train from the wrong end.
Weekend works at Acton have overrun, a lorry rips the safety barriers off a level crossing as it runs the lights, and 'the flying banana' trails for defects.
Huge delays occur after a man is hit by a train at Southall. Train enthusiasts descend on Paddington to get a glimpse of the world-famous Flying Scotsman.
Swindon control discovers an intoxicated man running around the tracks, forcing them to shut the line. Engineers at Cowley Bridge near Exeter insert 24 huge culverts to ease flooding there. In Paddington, a drink-addled dentist is convinced he has left his bag on a train.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
