      (The punch line isn't as good in English as in Swedish, but perhaps you can make a better translation.)

      At Borlänge railway station, Sweden, 2 o'clock in the morning, the sound of a fast driving car is heard, braking, stopping.
      A man comes running down from the car park out to the platform.
      Not a soul is awake at this hour.
      Except for the station master, who is on duty and who just happens to be on the platform.
      The guy comes up to him, almost out of breath, and asks him urgently:
      "Are there any trains for Stockholm?"
      The station master, longing for the tranquility of night and absolutely fed up with all the stupid questions he tends to get from various travellers, casts a glance disinterestedly along the railway line and responds
      "Well, at least they drew tracks in that direction".

      I have to make an after-dinner speech this week.
      Does anyone have any good transport jokes or humorous anecdotes? I'd be eternally grateful.

        Another "transport joke":

        A man comes panting into the station after a mile-and-a-half uphill haul
        from the town to the station. "Why do you put the station this far from the
        town, there are no taxis here?" "Oh, well", replies the clark, "the company
        thought it best to place the station near the rails".
