I worked on building a SW Trains signalling and training centre, the anti terrorist bollards around the entrance were sunk 5 metres into the ground and could stop an articulated lorry driving at 40 mph, dead, they cost £10,000 each
Why would terrorists target a 'Trains Signalling and Training Centre'? And especially why use a big truck?
That would seem to be a rather excessive use of resources against what would be an unlikely, if single-minded and over-zealous, terrorist attack.

"So today we'll be looking at the movements of a shunting yard in Doncaster and the 'up line' locomotives being used for the......OH MY GOD! EVERYBODY RUN!...."

I didnt design or guide the design i just helped build it, i do know however, that it was designed to be the signalling hub for the entire SW Trains network, so i guess if a terrorist wanted to disrupt the south west rail network; that would be the place to target. Re 'why lorries'. Trucks are easier to get hold of than planes.

Short film on 'Dust'. Very enjoyable CGI and FX.
