How the call of nature can go wrong......

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

There is a great story in an IRRS Journal from the mid-70s of the driver of the GNR Enterprise becoming locked in the toilet compartment of a new BUT railcar on Kellystown Bank between  Dundalk & Drogheda.

The driver placed his bag or a brake block on the "deadmans pedal" and left the cab to answer the call of nature while the train was travelling at line speed..

Meanwhile a passenger managed to jam the lock on the toilet door, luckily the driver had a screwdriver in his jacket pocket and returned to his cab in time to avoid wrecking the train or having to explain his actions to management or the irish Railway Inspector
