Report in "The Diary" section claims that a sign on Penrith Station reads         "Please Keep Back From The Platform Edge
               Or You May Get Sucked Off"
Can anyone confirm or deny this unlikely sounding claim?

The Boat Band's new CD is called "A Trip to the Lakes"(Harbourtown HARCD47). Now you know why we are recommending it.

There are some rather unusual place names in Scotland too. Lick, Bun and Tongue.

I worked in Penrith as a young potter but never noticed this sign .. Though I miss a lot with my crummy eye sight anyway .. All the best . Glad to see Penrith make it into a thread. Guy

Surely this is a take on the old joke (60s or probably earlier)
***** don't stand to near to the edge of the platform or the train will come along & suck you off.
"Come on train!"

Some years before that, I heard tell of a sailor who fell overboard & was sucked under the pier by a 5-foot WAVE.

This would actually be the Penrith Station in the UK, not in Australia.

Maybe an urban legend, but wasn't there once a billboard which stated 'Nothing sucks like a Hoover', upon which someone had graffiti'd 'Tracey does' followed by her phone number?

And the old famous sign on a campsite:

'Every erection on this site must be reported to the warden'
