Welshman Tries to Board Train with Pony
A Welshman walks his pony onto a train platform… sounds like the beginning of an English joke, but it’s not…
A MAN was captured on CCTV trying to board a train in Wales – with a pony in tow.
The unknown man attempted to buy two tickets – one for him and one for his four-legged friend – at Wrexham train station in North Wales, for a two-hour journey to Holyhead.
Shocked staff refused to serve the man, telling him horses were not allowed on the train.
Undeterred, the man said, “I know the law” and got into an elevator with the horse, and walked it across the bridge and onto a platform.
When the train arrived he boarded the service and tried to pull the pony on with him until a conductor intervened.
After a brief argument the man retreated and left the station with his pony.
A spokeswoman for Arriva Trains Wales said the company did not allow livestock to board trains.“We do allow small animals, such as dogs and guide dogs, onboard but not large animals that could pose a risk to the general public,” she said.
