A Channel Tunnel or tilting train may once have seemed far fetched, but these plans were grounded compared to British Rail proposals to use flying saucers.
Recently uncovered plans show bosses filed for a patent in 1970 for a space craft powered by "controlled thermonuclear fusion reaction".

With a passenger compartment upstairs, it would have been cheap to run and super-fast, according to its inventor.

The proposals were recently found on the European Patent Office website.

The original patent application said the reaction would be "ignited by one or more pulsed laser beams"...continuesBBC

Hmmm, I'm not so sure about Flying Saucers, but I have noticed some severe time dilation effects in the vicinity of British Rail timetables, so they may have got interplanetary travel sussed!
