Murder on the Gaelic Express?

Paramedics from the Scottish Ambulance Service attended and they were pronounced dead at the scene.

Well, that wasn't very convenient of them.

Something similar happened when I used to ride the MARC to work, some doofus committed suicide by hanging himself from one of the railroad signals.  The body was swinging back and forth across the tracks.  Held up all the trains for hours until they could get the ME down from Baltimore to rule it a suicide and let the fire department cut the body down.

The body was torn to pieces. The head was set on London Bridge, the arms and legs sent to the four corners of Britain as a warning. It did not have the effect that Longshanks planned.

Freudian slip?

Some people have made the mistake of seeing Shunt's work as a load of rubbish about railway timetables, but clever people like me who talk loudly in restaurants see this as a deliberate ambiguity, a plea for understanding in a mechanised mansion. The points are frozen, the beast is dead. What is the difference? What indeed is the point? The point is frozen, the beast is late out of Paddington. The point is taken. If La Fontaine's elk would spurn Tom Jones the engine must be our head, the dining car our aesophagus, the guards van our left lung, the cattle truck our shins, the first class compartment the piece of skin at the nape of the neck and the level crossing an electric elk called Simon. The clarity is devastating. But where is the ambiguity? Over there in a box. Shunt is saying the 8.15 from Gillingham when in reality he means the 8.13 from Gillingham. The train is the same, only the time is altered. Ecce homo, ergo elk. La Fontaine knew its sister and knew her bloody well. The point is taken, the beast is moulting, the fluff gets up your nose. The illusion is complete; it is reality, the reality is illusion and the ambiguity is the only truth. But is the truth, as Hitchcock observes, in the box? No, there isn't room, the ambiguity has put on weight. The point is taken, the elk is dead, the beast stops at Swindon, Chabrol stops at nothing, I'm having treatment and La Fontaine can get knotted.

"Paramedics from the Scottish Ambulance Service attended and they were pronounced dead at the scene."

WTF? Was there some kind of poisonous gas released at the scene? Were there any other fatalities? I need to know!

You DO know ME=Medical Examiner, right? Of course you do. Just like Pee Wee meant to fall off that bike.

Ahhh, I never thought of that, makes perfect sense. I guess the zombie paramedics will come in handy when the zombie apocalypse happens. You know, for all the injured zombies.
