A couple in South Africa who were having sex on a railway track in
Mpumalanga Province have been killed by a goods train, police say.

Spokesman Abie Khoabane said it took place on Friday evening and the
victims were yet to be identified.

He told local newspapers that the couple ignored the driver's shouts
as he moved the train into the disused station in Kinross town.

"They continued with their business," he told the Sowetan paper.

According to South Africa's Beeld newspaper, the area was deserted
with no cars or houses nearby.

The man died at the scene and the woman died later at hospital, the
Sowetan reports.

The police have appealed for those with missing relatives to come
forward to help with their investigation.

Must've had one-track minds, or maybe they were just loco.

The man died at the scene and the woman died later at hospital, the Sowetan reports.I suppose it's typical that he was first.

You do realise the distress this will cause to every PR "executive" here in the UK who "works" for Network Rail and the TOC's don't you....imagine not being able to conjure up such an improbable excuse excuse as the "wrong sort of sex on the line" as a reason to cancel services. :E

They were coming, and the train was coming, but the train was the only one equipped with brakes...

You lot have got one track minds.
The lad could have been steaming away at the buffers and when the whistle blew his mind would have been off track.

Thought those African Trains had Cow Catchers on the front to thrust aside Lions Rhinos Elephants and such sitting on the track.
Well they did have them int olden days when I was there.

Was he trying to buffer or shunt her?, and were they awarded any points?

They should have used protection. Mind you the train plunging into the dark tunnel is an image one would not want to remember....

'The driver did what? I didn't even know we had trains in South Africa. Well they're not Virgins now, they are definately [email protected]@@ed. Er, there's no snow in South Africa is there? No? Ok. What about leaves? No? Doesn't matter. Get Dick, I mean Mr Branson. Oh, and a graphic designer, we're going to have to change the logo a bit.'

Perhaps they were trying: "Its quicker by rail"


they were "letting the train take the strain".

I think it was a bit insensitive of the police to appeal for relatives 'to come forward'.

He wanted a quiet night in, but she railroaded him into it....

I think we should all be a little guarded as to what we say. This isn't really the right platform for a subject like this.

So, a hole in one followed by 17 Bogies. Bet he ended up with a bit of a handicap after that......

24th Sep 2008, 17:17
Perhaps he was track-laying.

Well it must have ruined their train of thought :}
