Thinking he was just about to get on, a commuter has been completely overshot by the train.

The man was perfectly positioned at the end of the platform to secure a seating position but his chances were ruined as the train whooshed ahead.

A foreigner trusting the locals standing in front of him also had to make a mad dash just to get on the train.

“You had one job to do,” thought Frederick.

Frederick will wait a few more years before attempting to match the details of the next train displayed on the electronic boards with the markings on the platform ground.
