Too literal?

One of the first gags I got as a child was of a pencil drawing of a zoo keeper pointing at an elephant that was stood over a huge pile of dung, with the caption stating: I said SIT!

Since then, I've always loved this kind of subtle - sometimes way too literal - humour, none moreso than that displayed by a First Capital Connect driver recently at King's Cross station.

Rumour has it drivers are now told to draw up as close as possible to the buffer stop at the end of the plaform, and clearly this driver has obliged. And why does the red stop sign at the top of the flimsy red pole need to even be there? What good would this do if presented with a runaway train?

Is the train actually making contact with the stop sign? Thats classes as a collision
