Once down on the platform at Bowen Hills Station, Brisbane, Australia, the man wheels it in between commuters waiting for their trains in bizarre scenes. He then lifts it on to a train when it arrives.But trouble strikes when a transport policeman spots him and issues him a $252 fine (£149).
Queensland Rail posted the video on Facebook complete with a comedic soundtrack.“While it’s not a daily occurrence, these are certainly not the first oversized objects we’ve seen on the network. From lawn mowers and generators to surfboards and life-size mannequins, we’ve seen it all,” a Queensland Rail spokeswoman said.
