    It's completely normal, in the eighties the lights on the train were not supposed to light the track, they were just an indicator for others that the train was operational. So don't worry, it's normal that you cannot see anything in the tunnels!

    UK trains generally operate with marker lights, not headlights.
    The idea being everyone else around can know your train is operational, which direction it might be moving in, or that you are already heading their way.
    There is little need for headlights, by the time they shine on something, you will be about to hit it.
    This is a reason that freight yards and passenger stations all have high level floodlighting. - they are areas where hazards or people/vehicle movements exist.

    How I put the Passenger light on? Because there is all dark in the Class 101 in Tunnel or Night and I think on the other trains also

    In the 101 there is a toggle switch and some buttons to turn both the passenger and guard compartment lights on. It's situated on the console just to the right of of the handbrake. (You will probably have to stand up to get to it)

    Your passengers will appreciate the illumination. :)
