From the BBC:
A man has been captured on CCTV trying to board a train accompanied by a pony.
Shocked staff watched as the man tried to get on the train at Wrexham General station with the white pony in tow
After a conductor refused him entry, the man returned to the ticket booth where he tried to buy two tickets – for himself and the animal.
Wales Online reports on the hunt to find the man:
The man, believed to be a traveller known as Joe, tried to get on the train at Wrexham and journey to Holyhead on Saturday evening.
But he was turned away by the train’s conductor before trying to buy tickets for himself and the animal at the station.
The man also took the horse to Wrexham Maelor Hospital’s A&E department.
Pony train-travel afficionados probably recall that David Freeman-Mitford, aka Baron Redesdale once bought a Shetland pony called Brownie in London for his children. He brought it back to their town residence in a hansom cab and stabled it overnight in a box room, planning to take it to their country home by train the next day. On being told that it could not travel in the goods van, he announced that he, the pony, his wife and children would all travel third class instead.
