All aboard for free Christmas dinner

Over 200 homeless people in London have been treated to a holiday party thanks to some rail workers at the Euston Train Station. Fifty volunteers from Britain's Network Rail worked alongside charity staff to throw a Christmas bash complete with decorations.

"Using a train station to give homeless people a Christmas dinner and festive cheer is a great thing to do," says a rail official. "Thousands of my colleagues will be working on Christmas day. It's pretty much par for the course for many of us. But this year, since I and a handful of coworkers were not scheduled to work, we came up with this plan to feed some of London's homeless. It beats 'working on the railway.'"
