I wouldn't call it a "short train ride outside London", but then,
I'm used to Swiss distances :-)
If you go to the Bletchley Park, also visit The National Museum of Computing
which is at the back of Bletchley Park ( http://www.tnmoc.org ). It's
a volunteer operated museum with lots of old computers. They also have
a working Colossus and a WITCH on display. If you talk to one of the
staff, he might show you the box with all the old crystals they have
collected and don't know what to do with :-)
Any simple idea will be worded in the most complicated way.
