What a great idea: EDF nuclear to power UK trains: http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/C_Nuclear_for_the_long_haul_1101131.html
..."By electrifying more track and contracting nuclear power supplies
from EDF Energy the UK rail network operator will reduce fossil fuel use
over the next ten years. A joint statement today described how
Network Rail will purchase power exclusively from EDF Energy, with that
supply matched to nuclear generation. With a requirement of 3.2 TWh per
year, Network Rail is the UK's largest power customer. It owns all the
railway infrastructure and purchases power centrally, recouping money
from firms that operate trains across its network."
