Bristol and Bath Railway Path to close in Staple Hill after badgers cause mischief

A busy stretch of the Bristol and Bath Railway Path will close for two months after burrowing badgers blocked a ditch.

South Gloucestershire Council is carrying out works expected to last eight weeks, meaning it is likely to remain closed until January 10.

Are badgers the new newts ?

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.
