Now he could hear the distant rumble of the engine, pumping it's way down the line. He still couldn't see it, the dark tunnel blocking his view. The lines began to vibrate harder as the hot engine roared closer, entering the tunnel that separated the station from the train. Further and further it pumped it's engine into the long, dark tunnel. Darkness and moisture enveloping the train. The anticipation of the travellers on the train grew with each passing second. The all encompassing tunnel drawing them further and further in. Their breathing grew shallow and fast as the temperature grew inside. Finally the engine burst out into the daylight, steam blowing everywhere, and the driver almost spent. The conductor moved faster and faster as the hot engine eased into the station. Finally the passengers spewed forth onto the platform, their journey at an end.....or had it only just begun???


But you need the term "quivering with excitement" in one of these. It isn't a porno until you have that term.

We had a history field trip to some Maori sites in the Waikato. Day trip starting nice and early.

Plain driving all the way towards Southish Auckland and i remember us kinda dangerously overtaking a truck.

I stop paying attention and chat to classmates and stare into space, and eventually we get towards Ramarama and i'm woken from daydreaming by the bus swerving....i looked out the window and the truck we overtook was really close and i remember thinking "Fuck, that's close!" and suddenly something attracts my attention at the front of the bus, i look and see the left side of the windscreen getting smashed in by the back of a mini-truck. We slow down and pull over to the side of the motorway, the front left side of the bus completely FUCKED. Like the front door won't be able to open fucked.

The little truck we hit was rolled and was sitting in the middle of the road. Needless to say, we called ambulances and police etc and caused one hell of a roadblock.

After a wait that felt like forever (because the bus was now a wind tunnel because of the hole at the front and the popped emergency exit at the back) we were picked up by another bus and taken back to school and we got sent home.

I was held for a bit because my blood pressure was a touch high. My theory was it was because i'd needed to pee since we left the school that morning, and i'd been holding on for the better part of 5 hours.

What had happened was the road went down to one less lane for roadworks, our driver was seemingly racing with the truck and suddenly we ran out of room.

Since the bus was mostly empty (one 7th form history class of about 15 people) nobody but the teacher was sitting up front - he was fine apart from shock. I was next closest, but like 4 rows back. I never chased up how the guy in the other truck was, but the ambulance officers said he was alright.

The principal hung around with me while i used his office phone to call my dad to pick me up, and a few days later when i was arriving at the ball - along with one or two others from the history class asked how we were.

I faked caring about missing the field trip. Really i was glad.
That's really scary! What year was that? That's only like 15 minutes drive from my place....

I can think of a couple of excursions where a bus accident really would've been more exciting than the actual excursion. Like the one where I got bored out of my brains at a ginger factory. I wanted to appear like I gave a shit because I had a really good, likeable teacher, but ... I don't think I succeeded. I just hope the excursion was one of curriculum necessity and she was equally bored rather than it being a brilliant idea she had.

He said "We'll have to look at rescheduling it"......i was silent wondering how to not say fuck no!

I came up with a half-hearted "yeah....".


It didn't get rescheduled.

It was the only one i can remember where a bus crash made it less shit - other times at least i could talk shit with my mates and have a laugh.
