Train Surfing

Just got a little more…dodgy

Railway staff in Indonesia have started hanging concrete balls above train tracks in a bid to prevent commuters from riding on carriage roofs.

They want to prevent this

so they’re hanging these


I guess this is one mode of commuting I’ll pass on.

    Y’know, in other places they would add trains or cars to the route to take care of the overflow…

    If they still use the Common Law, they’re in big trouble.

    Well, the institution of marriage is going south so those balls and chains have to go somewhere.

    I would pay to watch the first train pass under these.

  8. All kidding aside, I have been to India (not indonesia) and once I rode the train and people packed on top of them just like this picture. I bought a ticket and rode on the inside but still it was quite an experience.
