Passengers on board an Eastern European train are growing increasingly frustrated as their vehicle enters its 37th minute of complete, unexplained motionlessness.
“I don’t think there was a mechanical failure,” American passenger Jeff Stern told The Tragic Traveller. “It can’t be a scheduled stop; there’s no station near here, and we’re still several hours from the border. I guess Eastern European trains just do this sometimes.”
Stern said he’d tried asking several locals what was happening, but nobody seemed the slightest bit concerned.
The staff are just acting like this happens every day. They’re standing outside having a smoke while we’re trapped in here. It doesn’t make any sense.
At publication time, Stern had decided to use the on-board toilet, a decision he instantly regretted.T
