At Marion I was surprised to see the driver emerge from his cabin and walk to the door, though I'd seen no wheelchair waiting. He proceeded past my window to the barrier fence at the end of the platform and jumped down onto the track. He then manhandled a middle aged man carrying a shopping bag onto the platform and remonstrated with him. It was quite a feat to lift the person, who had been completely invisible from my seat until the driver intervened. He was last seen walking down the ramp with the alighting passengers, who seemed just as astonished as I was. Whether he had been trying to take a short cut along the line to avoid the tunnel, I do not know, but that he was a fool, I am sure.
Have any of you similar stories of idiotic behaviour around trains?
