    I’ve heard a lovely rumour that there is a donkey hidden in every TSW route. I have looked for them but I haven’t found any.

    Has anyone found them all? Or any of them? Do they really exist?

    Any hints would be most appreciated. Maybe not exact locations so as not to completely spoil the fun or maybe just a link to an external guide if revealing the locations on here would be against the spirit of their existence.

    That’s Anthony’s video. I probably would never have found that one. I have been going down little alleys and such on a few routes and there are some great little spaces but no donkeys.

    On Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr when you´re driving towards Bochum: It´s right behind Mülheim (Ruhr) Styrum. It´s a drawing on a wall on the left side.

    I found the donkey in West Somerset, and another one somewhere else, I don't remember where though or which route. :(

    Yeah I’ve seen the one in WSR now but I read in another thread that some routes have more than one donkey, and I don’t know if that’s better or worse. More chance of finding one but no chance of knowing if you’ve found them all. I’m usually too busy driving the trains to go searching, but I find myself wanting to find them now and I haven’t managed to stumble on any by myself. More walking around and driving with external cameras from now on I think.

    "Terrible things are happening to donkeys. Donkeys are often treated badly and over-worked..... until thier bodies then become broken* ... but that isn't the worst thing to happen to a donkey....... Donkeys are kind.... loy-al and trust-ing, and the thing that hurts a donkey the most.... is when you break a donkey's heart....."

    I heard the above in a rich Welsh accent from the TV in the background..... and this was followed by something like:

    "....And you can make everything perfectly okay again and bring joy and happiness to a donkey's heart.... just simply give £5 per month to the person that created this charity, and a small amount of your donation will be used to buy food for the donkey that we have imprisoned in our basement, which we sometimes use for our adverts, which we sometimes feed between periods of starving it so that it looks like it is nearly dead.... to make you feel as guilty as possible and encourage you to give us your cash....... ooops, did I say that last bit out loud.....?".


    *(and even more broken than the Class 89 on TS1, and that's saying something....!)

    That’s why they run away and hide near railways. Not because they are badly treated, it’s because they don’t want to be associated with the charity scamverts. Give them £5 a month and they’ll be phoning you up every week asking for £10, then £20. The donkeys are above all that, and they love nothing more than seeing trains go by.

    The would rather be in GWR 1st Class on a 43 but the children on-board would hassle it
    So it would rather look at it so it doesn't get hassled

    Perhaps the donkeys are right here in these forums (or at least a synonym thereof)?
