Trains are howling in the dark

I got to sleep OK at before 11.00 last night. Then I was woken up by a godawful noise which proceeded to go on at frequent but irregular intervals for over an hour. It wasn't an alarm but a very painful metallic noise which I couldn't see anything out the window to explain. It sounded like either someone was trying to start a very, very large and rusty engine or perhaps they were cutting a train into very small slices. It did briefly occur to me that someone was taking a hint from yesterdays news and stealing the railway track into Haymarket, ut it still seemed to be there this morning...

So I took a sleeping tablet at 2am and consequently felt very dopey this morning. I am used to the ordinary mating calls of trains, and have even grown to quite like them, but this was ludicrous.
