Passengers travelling from Victoria on Sunday (March 26) were in for a surprise when a train driver sang a Monty Python song in response to the Westminster terror attack.
The driver of the delayed Sunday evening 7.54pm Southern Rail train from London Victoria to West Croydon decided to cheer up commuters with a bit of music after the events in the capital on Wednesday (March 22).
After reciting the destinations of the train to the passengers, he then wished all the mums on the train a "happy Mother's Day".
Explaining the options on offer to customers, he added: "For your enjoyment this evening, we do have 10 of the company's most poshest coaches for you to use, they are the ones with the plug socket at your seat, where you can have some of that electricity for free.
"We have ten coaches, 596 seats, as well as the four in the toilets.
"The only difference between first class and standard class is the little white hanky behind your head.
"Doesn't look like much, but some people would pay thousands of pounds for it.
"Anyway, after the events this week, please remember to drink lots of tea and a stiff upper lip."
The driver then broke into Monty Python's Galaxy Song to the amusement of the passengers.
It was originally featured in the 1983 film Monty Python's The Meaning of Life during the comedy sketch "Live Organ Transplants".
A paramedic, played by John Cleese, is failing to persuade Mrs Brown (Terry Jones) to donate her liver.
He then opens the door to a fridge to reveal a man in a pink suit (Eric Idle) who begins singing to the patient in a bid to make her change her mind.
Lyrics to the song include: "So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure/ How amazingly unlikely it is your birth/ And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space/ Because there's bugger all down here on Earth."
Claire Carter, who was travelling on the train , said: "Initially the train from Victoria was delayed - an all too familiar with Southern recently.
"But the driver, who said he was alone on the train, apart from the rolling display he referred to as 'digital Doris' throughout the journey, soon had everyone giggling.
"My favourite part has to be when we actually got to Crystal Palace and he warned 'If you are going home via the park, after dark, be careful as there are dinosaurs. Grrrr.'
"Everyone left the train with smiles on their faces.
"This journey was a welcome change from the absolute misery of travelling on Southern Rail over the last few months. If only more drivers were like him, it might make the delays and cancellations a lot more bearable."
