Baffled train passengers ended up in South Yorkshire after their driver got "lost" on a route from Newcastle (Northeast) to Reading (South).

Jeni Harvey, who was riding the CrossCountry Train service, said she was “struck because the driver went the wrong way".

She added: "Who knew this was even possible?" For his part, Ruth Adams replied: "I really did not know that trains could get lost!"

The loss of the train sparked controversy on social networking sites, as this may an unprecedented incident in the country known for its train discipline.

The train was eventually redirected to Sheffield where the service was terminated, The Yorkshire Post reported. Passengers then had to catch a different train to their intended destination.

A spokesperson for the railway company said: "Unfortunately, while being diverted because of an earlier event. After a delay the train was able to travel to Sheffield were it was terminated, and customers were able to continue their journeys on alternative services. The cause of this incident is currently being investigated.”

More than four million trains were rescheduled in the move, but passengers complained after many were canceled.
