Saw the most amazing thing on the web today, a train company which knows how to please the people, well the simple minded of us anyway! The freshly renovated railway station in Overvecht has the world’s first transfer accelerator. The slide, sorry, transfer accelerator, is situated next to a large flight of stairs and provides a faster method of descent if you are running late in the redeveloped station.
The developers say it was created as a nice gesture to the people for a playful spin on the usual mundane journey to work. I can’t stop looking at it, it looks like quite a lot of fun, indeed! I do hope they bring one in at Victoria!
Here’s a video of it in action, I love the thumbs up at the end. Although I wonder if it meets health and safety regulations?!
