Summary
COI synopsis: The fastest learners in the world are in Britain - because their classroom is a part of a 125mph commuter train. Everything from antiques to computer science is available, and the service is free to anyone who wants to enrol - so our reporter joins the speedy students on an early morning run from Cambridge.
