This is for real. At the Dartmouth Steam Railway... Passenger - "what time does the 3.15 leave?" Staff - "3.15." P - "where do i find the ferry?" S - "in the river, sir." A passenger came out of the booking halld having just spent a modest sum on a family ticket and said "So, where are we going on this journey?" He posted with however many quid and had no idea what he'd bought. How do they cross the road? When the Torbay Express arrives at Paignton NR the DB crew bail and a DSR crew get on. One day, just after we had boarded 6024 getting ready for the climb a lady onlooker called up, "Its nice that you're grandad has brought you on the engine for a ride" (I'm the fireman and she's gestured to the driver) I replied "No, I am the fireman." "oh," she said, "so are you on work experience then? Do you want to do this when you leave school?" "No madam, I am the fireman, this is my job, I work here full time. I left school 8 years ago!" However since then I have had a son, so i now almost look my age. Almost. Also, during the opening conversations earlier this year with a footplate rider he asked "You look very young to be the driver, how long have you been driving for?" My reply, "I don't want to worry you but this is my 2nd trip." He held on to the handrail right!
