EMT Automated Comedy Gold

This from Derby Anoraknophobic...

Those boarding the 06:04 to St Pancras at Derby this morning were greeted by an announcement asking all passengers and staff to immediately vacate the train!

From the platform it was clear to confused passengers, from the excessive smoke around the power car, that there was a small engine fire.

As staff dealt efficiently with the incident and evacuated the platform an automated station announcement bellowed out reminding passengers that smoking was prohibited anywhere on the station premises!

There's a lesson in this somewhere...
