Naked Train Drivers Calendar

Perfect Christmas gift for any train fans:

Forget the Women's Institute, 13 train drivers (12 men and a woman) from First Capital Connect's Bedford depot decided to strip off for a calendar to raise money for children at the Ahotokurom Centre in Ghana and the Railway Children’s platform appeal.

Elaine Holt, Managing Director, said: "Let me tell you the final product makes for very interesting viewing. No month is quite the same! We are very proud of these drivers who have bared all. I hope that people will dig deep into their pockets for these two fantastic causes. I'm sure that people will have a giggle or two when they turn over the pages each month, all the time remembering just how brave they all were to bare all at our train depots."

Train's naked Driver Sacked - MetroJust as long as they don't drive the trains naked and then take pictures of themselves otherwise they might be in trouble. Perhaps the drivers here should have said they were posing for a calendar shoot and they might have got away with it.

To buy Drivers in The Buff - visit First Capital Connect's site and remember there's a discount for bulk orders.

Alternatively you can order the calendar from any First Capital Connect stations. Must be fun at the ticket office at the moment with choruses of "I'll have a return to Luton Airport and some naked blokes please."
