Beleaguered UK railway company Southern Rail isn't exactly used to good press these days. Industrial disputes, reduced services, and late-running trains have seen public anger at the rail firm grow exponentially over the last year, but all of that seems to have been temporarily forgotten thanks to an unlikely savior in the form of a 15-year-old student called Eddie.

Southern Rail have recently put the teenager, who's currently on work experience at the firm, in charge of the company's Twitter account, and it seems like people can't get enough of his cheery charm. He's even spawned a hashtag - #askeddie - thanks to his willingness to answer all sorts of weird and wonderful questions that the public have been throwing at him. Putting Eddie in charge has been one of the most popular decisions the rail company has made in quite awhile. Let's just hope they offer him a job!

That's HARD. One duck sized horse would be awesome. But 100 duck sized horses... I'll take them. I will tame them and they will become my forever friends and they will follow me everywhere. Yeah.

I love the way he bounces these back - asking "You?" on the end. A nice way to extend a convo, or signal that his answer is personal, not absolute.
