Not your average hobbyist's train set!

As a big kid, I would like to have a model train set, you know with lots of lines, stock, signals and green foam trees, but this guy's taken it to another level!

Thanks @shutter, I thought red signals meant you had to stop. What's he doing, is he trying to kill us!

Yeah, I noticed that too... I think the proper term is SPAD .....   (Signal Passed At Danger )

And no ATP (Automatic Train Protection).  I suppose if he only has one train it's quite safe to carry on regardless, but what about the points?

Slightly OT but someone has recorded the entire tube journey from LHR T5 to Cockfosters from inside the train:
