Six nights a week, the Night Rivera connects Cornwall, a bit of Devon and Taunton with London, transporting people between the east and the west in a mixture of single and twin berth cabins and "seated sleeper" carriages.

And letting someone else drive it was a big thing. Not that he actually drove - he hasn't even started lessons, however will be learning in the future.
