On 20 July 2016 we opened a very special station in the heart of Roald Dahl country: GIANT MISSENDEN.
Deep in leafy Buckinghamshire, or Giant Country, where Big Friendly Giants roam and dreams come true is Giant Missenden station where giants, human beans and their families get their trains to work and play.
Giant Missenden station uses Gobblefunk signage to avoid confusion and ensure giants and human beans alike are able to read them. We even employ Giant Liaison Officers who are really BIG on helpfulness.
One of our Giant Liaison Officers, Shaun Dawson, explained: “I get on with everyone and try to be helpful. As friendly giants use the station, it helps that I’m 6’ 7” and that I can speak a little Gobblefunk. Now and again I have to remind everyone that human beans are not to be guzzled and I direct them to our cafe where they can find scrumdiddlyumptious snacks and, if they are lucky, Frobscottle.”
