Trigger: will go by bus in the future

The owner of a pony who tried to board a train at Wrexham General railway station yesterday, claims that the animal has never before travelled by train, and much prefers going by bus.

Dai Boony, 51, was taking his pony, Trigger, for a day out to Chester and changed his normal routine so that the animal could experience the freedom of being able to stretch its legs whilst on the train, instead of having to sit for hours on a cramped coach.

Rail officials quickly refused both pony and owner access to the platform, but not before both had made a brief foray onto the train. When Boony returned to buy tickets, he was told that there would be nowhere for Trigger to sit, and standing in those parts of the train which are next to the toilets was "out of the question".

Ticket office manager Ernie Widgit said:

"We don't mind accommodating animals, but, you see, there was already a passenger travelling with a bison and two baby elephants, and there was little enough room for them!"

A disappointed Mr Boony said:

"That's the last time we try to get on a train! We'll stick to the bus in future."
