Croatia real estate


North Po

Commuters desperate to spend a penny on this passenger train in snow-swept Poland have just got to learn how to chill out.

Because although regulars on the Szczezin to Warsaw route may be used to a flaky service, this is just taking the pee.

Astonished passengers trying to use the lavatory found they had to chip their way through three inches of snow and ice before they could even see the seat.

"The carriage was absolutely freezing - about minus 3 degrees - so I was huddled up with other passengers trying to keep warm.

"Then I went to use the toilet - and was confronted with this," said Artur Kaminski, 68, who took the snaps.

Fellow passenger Agnieszka Mucha got cold comfort when she tried complaining to the conductor.

"I went to see if they could turn the heating on and he told me, ‘It’s an old train - at least their isn’t snow in the carriage’," she said.

Railway officials have blamed a faulty window seal for the frosty reception.

Spokesman Michal Stilger said: "We have different trains and carriages of different ages. They are all safe and efficient."

"If passengers report snow inside the train we remove it," he added.
