Aaahhh…It was a different time back then, wasn’t it. The train driver fell out and the train was delayed at the next station while they found a new one. No doubt once the new driver was firmly ensconced behind the wheel the journey continued as if nothing had happened. These days the entire line would be shut down while everyone that had been anywhere near the train in the last week was thoroughly investigated. This driver was one pretty lucky bloke to have fallen and made it out of the other end of the train without being squished. I think that the fact he was taken to the police station and charged give us a fairly good idea of what was going on shortly before he lost his footing. I don’t think that there are laws against accidentally falling out of a train, but I do think that there might be a problem with being in charge of heavy machinery while incapacitated.
