Melbourne commuters throw support behind train driver in lovely gesture
Melbourne’s best qualities have once again come to the fore, with morning commuters throwing their support behind an emotional train driver.
The Herald Sun reports the woman had been driving a Frankston Line express when she narrowly avoided hitting a pedestrian who had skipped through a level crossing at Parkdale on Thursday morning.
It all became too much for her when she explained why the train was delayed.
But in a touching gesture, several passengers waited for the woman outside her cabin when the train arrived at Flinders Street Station.
They hugged her when she got off the train.
