The only thing better than a train ride to London is a train ride to London that doubles as a public quiz show.

Mashable’s Sam Haysom reports that a London-area train turned into a London-area love fest for one train operator who decided to become his own game show host of sorts.

As the report found, the man behind the budding hashtag #timetunneltrain is none other that Southern Rail UK driver Steve.

Yep, that is all we really know about this amateur game show host, but it comes thanks to a tweet from a man named Peter Hannaford who thanked the driver back in December for a lively train ride. 

Well, a doff of the cap to Steve for brightening the day of locals and tourists who were in the area.

Now Hannaford shared with Mashable the following about his December journey on Steve’s train: “He gave all sorts of funny stats about the train... age, make, capacity etc... did a music question (sang)... made a lot of reference to his hashtag too.”

The fun continues anytime Steve takes to the rails. Here is what you can find at the hashtag this week:

Those in and around London have a truly special train operator on their commute. Hopefully, one day we can get in on this magical quiz—one that has quite the amazing prize for winners:
