Penguin To Punch Tickets On Japanese Train

The Penguin Post has learned that a railway company in western Japan said it is offering tickets on a train to be conducted by an African penguin. The Ichibata Electric Railway Co., based in Izumo, said tickets will be available through Friday for a Saturday ride on a train featuring Haruka the penguin in the conductor’s uniform, Kyodo News reported Tuesday. The penguin, from Matsue Vogel Park, will lead the train on round-trip service along Lake Shinji in Matsue, the railway company said. “I hope the special train will be packed with many passengers, enough to make our penguin conductor work hard,” an Ichibata official said.
