Must be a hoax. The Berlin S-Bahn is traditionally out of order in winter.

Commuters in Berlin got the fright of their lives last week when a woman boarded a subway train with her Shetland pony

My God, those poor people. This is simply terrifying.

Considering that people take dogs as big as that with them, "fright of their lives" might be a bit of an exaggeration.

See Deutsche Bahn? That's what you get for using English without a German translation for all your services and slogans.
If you label things "Park and Ride", you can't blame people for bringing their horses.

I hope the pony remembered to get his ticket stamped or the inspectors will get him for sure.

"fright of their lives"?? I had no idea Germans were such pussies. Look how calm the pony is riding....
 
2012-12-16 05:17:15 PM  
A horse can be dangerous. What if it escapes?

what indeed. imagine it leaping from the subway at the wrong stop and scampering up the stairs, the poor girl trailing behind.

The ponies look gay but Shetland Sheepdogs are awesome.

You ever seen a horse piss in the street? The splatter off the subway floor would moisten a few shins.

sseye: Damn, what's that book with references to a girl and a Shetland pony? Something by Vonnegut?


Ah, it was Vonnegut, in Slaughterhouse 5, apparently also in a John Irving novel, The Cider House Rules. Allegedly, in both cases, the first porn pic. Maybe an old urban legend?

Welp, blew my chance to get in a good one. Maybe if I'd had a horse, I would have payed more attention in college.

Yes! The cuteness factor alone could kill millions!

stanhapsburg: Must be a hoax. The Berlin S-Bahn is traditionally out of order in winter.


That's funny, cos I was there in winter, in very very cold winter, and rode the S-bahn every day.

Here's the money shot:

"'A horse can be dangerous. What if it escapes? The S-Bahn is no place for such animals. We have informed the police already.'"


You'd almost expect it to have been a Daily Mail article, since it does really make Germans look silly.

Come on, people. It's Berlin. Nothing scary has ever happened there. This must have been horrifying.

oh the s-bahn. where everyone stares and stare but acts APPALLED it you attempt to communicate in any way.

i'm sure the pony was absolutely SHOCKING to their conformist sensibilities

skinink: I hope the pony remembered to get his ticket stamped or the inspectors will get him for sure.


No joke - I've never seen a ticket inspector in any other part of Germany, but I was checked twice in Berlin. But it still can't match Budapest, where I was checked 5 times on a single trip.
 
2012-12-16 10:22:32 PM  
Yeah, the S-Bahn. Back in Occupation days a lifetime ago, Allied personnel & their families were forbidden to use the S-Bahn. It ran at least 50% above ground, so being only partly subway, According To The Maps, in both East & West. Had a Shetland pony been taken aboard the U-Bahn in W Berlin, it might not have created such a stir.

Almost all of the S-Bahn is above ground.
The only longer stretch which isn't and that comes to mind right now is the one where that video was taken: the part of the S1/S2 which goes through the center of the city (between Yorckstrasse and Humboldthain)

That pony would have been one of the easiest and calmest of the animals (or people behaving like one) I've met on the Berlin S-Bahn.

Neither.
The lighter parts that look like snow are the normal, dry floor; the darker parts are simply wet.

In Berlin, I went to an American ex-pat bar where the entertainment was a punk band from Italy that did Beatles covers..
