Sometimes life is just a bit odd.

Today I found myself helping a robot get on board a train.

Sadly it wasn’t C3PO, or Optimus Prime, but rather a “Robot Wars” type mechanoid which was strapped, along with a huge toolbox, to a sack trolley.

Unfortunately the trolley wheels had got stuck underneath the train doorstep and against the platform edge – it was either that or an interstellar vortex dragging it, and the puffing humaniod on the other end, down through a wormhole in time and space.

A bit of a hand from me and the metal warrior was off to conquer the planet – although going by Cross Country trains I don’t rate his chances. 

And I thought it was only Daleks that had problems with stairs.
