I work on top of a railway. Or at least I would if Dr. Beeching hadn't taken it.

Yes, overlooks Vastern Road railway bridge (East end of Reading station). Unfortunately I only have a very narrow gap to peer through - little more than one carriage length!

It came through again on Tuesday - unfortunately I didn't spot it quite soon enough as Tornado was on the front!

I live 500 feet from (and a little bit above) a railway line, and I drive trains on it too. You can see the steam coming up through the trees when a special goes through.

God knows, I've forgotten, I just did a Realtime Trains search for Ashford International to London Victoria and looked for any trains that seemed out of the ordinary!
