Interesting to know what would happen if the tram/train(?) hit the 'safety' aids? Roll eyes

I'd say they'd be slightly inconvenienced...

It's a joke !!

Firemen placed the hoses & protectors across a hardly used industrial track, took a photo, then removed the items !!

The rails don't look like UK gauge.. they look too far apart. The fire engine also doesn't look british.

 

That would never be allowed here in the UK... strict health and safety laws etc - even if it was just for a joke.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

@7up - I sussed it as non-UK as soon as I saw the picture - as you say, the fire engine didn't look UK, the signage looked wrong (yes, I know  I'm getting a bit deep Smiley ). I was also suspicious about the rail gauge.

@Infinity  Well spotted. It's been around for a while actually, but I didn't know that until my daughter pointed it out to me. I saw it for the first time yesterday.

 

Nobody mentioned it was British!

Yes, clicking on the image reveals the location and ate taken.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I saw a funny picture and laughed at it, didn't care about who what where when and why, cos that just destroys humour... Crazy
