Solar Flannel

“About 100 solar panels at the trackside site will supply renewable electricity to power the signalling and lights on Network Rail’s Wessex route.” https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/aug/22/rail-line-in-hampshire-is-worlds-first-to-be-powered-by-solar-farm

“There is also scope for solar trams in Edinburgh, Glasgow…”

Scope is what you’ll need to magnify the one photon of sunlight in Scotland.

Air on the Water

“In May the PLA [Port of London Authority] released its own air quality strategy for the Thames, including targets to cut NOx and particulates by half over the next 25 years.
Such measures are already being implemented in the Thames Clippers, but critics have pointed out that even with these changes pollution levels would still far exceed those of road vehicles.

The mirrors are making the smoke seem twice as bad as it actually is.
