Thousands of commuters were left stunned this afternoon as a secret code was leaked to the public in the form of train code words.
It is an increasingly regular occurrence for Luxembourg trains to stop on the tracks with claims of an alarm being started either on the train or on another train somewhere down the line.
Now Benelux News can reveal that “Alarm” is coded language for Crémant and is used when the train drivers feel like having a drink.
“Alcohol use is very common among our public service workers,” claimed a spokesman. “We just love to annoy our passengers and celebrate doing so by having a drink behind the locked train door.”
“We prefer to stop in the middle of a track between stations,” said one of the drivers, who did not want to be named. “This way the passengers have no option of disembarking and finding alternative transport.”
CFL refused to comment.
