From The BBC in Suffolk

Quote
A land train that carries thousands of holiday visitors up and down the seafront at a Suffolk resort has been stolen.

The popular attraction was taken from its Lowestoft home on Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, police said.

It was secured in a container stored between Kensington Gardens and St Mary's Catholic Primary School.

"A large lorry with a crane would have been required to move it," Darren Weavers, a friend of the owner, said. "We have reason to believe it is on its way to Scotland. It was parked up around 16:30 BST on Tuesday secured in the container."

Dear Scotrail,

We know you're short of rolling stock, but this type doesn't have gauge clearance outside the Broads.  Please return it.
