Everyone knows that the hardest part of the working day is often the daily commute. If you didn’t have to do it, it would cut your working day by a couple of hours in most cases. On top of that there are delays, cancellations and packed carriages to contend with – all before the boss has decided that today will be the day that you will be micro-managed until going to live in an igloo in a remote part of Alaska with Eskimos starts to seem like a wise career move. If you could control the means by which you journeyed into work every day however, a lot of the stress of working life would be reduced as the journey in would be all the more enjoyable. Here therefore, are some alternative trains that would be a dead cert to make your daily rail commute infinitely more interesting – just don’t forget to tap out when you finish reading this!!
1. Toblerone Train
Shaped like a tasty segment of Toblerone chocolate, this is one example of rail travel where even if the train is in a station; you’ll never mind the gap!
2. Thomas the Tank(er) engine
For those of you that like travelling al fresco into work every morning, this train might be more your bag. Our only concern is that the carriages will be full of toxic chemicals for the duration of your journey rather than toxic fellow passengers!
3. Taxi Cab
This train looks more like a New York taxi cab than a train, so don’t be surprised if the driver sports a Mohican and says: ‘you talking to me?’ at some point along your journey into work!
4. Greyhound Bus Train
This train looks more like an old fashioned Greyhound bus from the 1960s and would be ideal for anyone that wants a speedy rail commute for the price of taking the coach to work.
5. VW Camper Van Train
For anybody that feels their daily commute should be filled with peace, love and copious amounts of LSD – this VW Camper Van train would be perfect for you. Just make sure you don’t leave your briefcase in the luggage rack after smoking weed and strumming Jefferson Airplane songs on your acoustic guitar on the way in to work!
6. Morris Minor Train
Imagine going to work in a Morris Minor every day? Whilst this would have been a common occurrence for people from the 1940s through to the 1970s, seeing one on a train track would be enough to send anyone off the rails!
7. Model T Train
We think Henry ford would be proud to know that people turned his iconic Ford Model T into a train. If you had to travel to work in one of these every day, hopefully you’d end up making as much money as he did!
8. Borat Train
Here at The W1nners’ Club, we’re huge fans of Sacha Baron Cohen’s movie Borat – we’re just a little bit surprised that somebody would use it as inspiration for creating a new mode of rail transport. If you travel to work in one of these every day, you’d probably get promoted simply for making it in on time.
9. Cyclist Train
For those of you that insist on cycling in to work every day but have already bought your annual rail season ticket, maybe this two-wheeled take on the traditional commuter train might help you out a little bit?
10. Working from Home Train
If you usually work from home but also have to be in the office at the same time, maybe you should consider moving into one of these prefabricated home commuter trains? At least you’ll be able to enjoy the daily commute without ever having to leave the comfort of your bed!
