Train Driver Leaves Passengers Stranded As His Shift Ends

Shocked passengers on a train travelling from the Croatian city of Karlovac to the capital Zagreb were over 2 hours late reaching their destination on Thursday, after the train’s driver walked off the job because his shift had finished.

The train stopped for 90 minutes in the small town of Hrvatski Leskovac, halfway to its final destination, as the train’s driver refused to continue driving the remaining 30-odd minutes to its final destination because his shift had ended. Passengers were left bewildered as they had to wait for a new driver to arrive.

When the new driver finally arrived, passengers reached the city of Zagreb 124 minutes after its scheduled arrival. Croatian Railways apologised and asked passengers to send their complaints in by email.
