Snake Shuts Down Sydney Train Platform, Because Straya

It's the Aussie sequel to Snakes on a Plane: Snakes on a Train.

Trains were temporarily halted from stopping at a train station in Sydney's west on Tuesday after a snake was found on the platform, meaning Sydney transport delays have scaled to a new peak.

Staff at Doonside station were forced to call Fire and Rescue NSW to deal with the unprecedented customer, but said they were unable to determine what type of snake it was because it had slithered away.

"We took every precaution in the event that it was venomous," Sydney Trains Info said in a tweet.

It's unclear whether it tapped off its Opal card before escaping.

This isn't the first time a Sydney Train line has been s-s-s-surprised by an usual customer. In 2017 a snake slithered onto a South Coast line train.

"Our mate was unharmed and taken off for relocation," Sydney Trains confirmed at the time.

Seriously just #Straya things.
