Oh No it's not about GWR and delay repay for once. It starred Mark Hopwood as the evil genie of the tail lamp. Chris Grayling as 'this is my priority' King Rat and Claire Perry as the Ferry Godmother. The performance came off the rails as the chorus was made of RMT guards who downed pumps as the clock was chiming 12. The lights didn't work so the ASM had to resort to semphore signals from the wings and the Bearded Widow Twankey disguised as Mr G Ellis was stranded at Melksham. The GWT  was a bit put out, at having discovered one of her tassels lost  from her bra, described as a points failure.
