A 15-year-old boy has single-handedly restored troubled Southern Rail's reputation after he took over their Twitter feed while on work experience.
Eddie was let loose on the unpopular train operator's social media account yesterday.
And while many people thought it would be a disaster, the result was incredibly heartening.
After tweeting that he was there on work experience, Eddie was inundated with questions from commuters - mostly about nothing to do with trains.
And Eddie patiently answered them all. See the best tweets below.
100 duck-sized horses. A horse-sized duck would be pretty scary! You? ^Eddie— Southern (@SouthernRailUK) July 11, 2017
Rollerblades for feet, I feel like I would get used to them pretty quickly and be able to get places quicker! You? ^Eddie— Southern (@SouthernRailUK) July 11, 2017
Hi, I don't think so but you never know there could be a girl that can. ^Eddie— Southern (@SouthernRailUK) July 11, 2017
