If you swan around on the railway, you get The Bag. Thanks to our ops manager Chris for helping this feathered friend safely from the line at #Staines and to @SW_Help customers who had to wait for us to arrive. The swan is off to a sanctuary to relax. pic.twitter.com/LI8kZnIlqt— Network Rail Wessex (@NetworkRailWssx) October 3, 2022
Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Some morning commuters in England were delayed for about an hour when a swan was spotted on the train tracks.
Passengers on Network Rail's Wessex route said they were delayed for about an hour Monday morning and were told the cause was a swan spotted on the tracks in Staines, Surrey, at about 8 a.m.
The Wessex route posted a photo to Twitter showing an employee carrying the swan after it was safely captured and put in a bag for restraint.
"If you swan around on the railway, you get The Bag," the tweet said.
Network Rail said the swan was taken to a sanctuary.
