    A train driver caused delays on a German rail line after mistaking a giant toy penguin for a dead man in a tuxedo.

    Passengers were left stranded in Neuwied after Udo Vergens pulled the emergency stop when he saw what he thought was a man lying face down and wearing a black and white tuxedo.

    Officials who came to investigate found only a man-size soft toy penguin lying on the tracks.

    A Neuwied police spokesman said: "We are at a loss to explain the presence of this very large penguin.

    It's mine. I thought I'd lost it.
