History

The Golden Penguin Award now on display in the Gentle Drive Fire Station

The Norris Square Railway Station is part of the Red Hare Commuter Rail Service based out of Bu Crescent Railway Station in Shuttlebank, which had branches throughout the city of malton which was run by infamous Pornstar/Town Selectman Scotw.

This location was not engulfed in flames during the Great Fire of 1912 but the tragedy that unfolded here was unparalleled. As the disastrous fire raged, numerous trains were diverted here due to its central location in Malton and because there were few fires in the suburb of Wray Heights. Seeking shelter during the disaster a train load of penguins headed for the City Zoo recklessly sped into the yard because the conductor was laughing hysterically at a sign directing trains to Cockburn Plaza Railway Station. This caused his train to collide with a train filled with used sumo thongs on the same track. The fast moving train derailed and crashed into the yard of a nearby molasses factory, (now a wasteland) rupturing a huge molasses tank (50 ft tall, 90 ft in diameter) containing as much as 2,300,000 gallons of molasses. The collision caused the tank to empty is contents and sent a 10-15 foot wave of molasses onto the train carrying the penguins and the surrounding area. A mistaken spectator thinking that the train cars of penguins were actually a train of nuns summoned men from the Gentle Drive Fire Station to begin a rescue operation. Meanwhile nearby buildings were swept off their foundations and crushed by the wave and several blocks were flooded to a depth of 2 to 3 feet and over 150 people were injured.

In waist deep molasses the brave firemen made their way to what they thought were the nuns. After rescuing several penguins local volunteers began to clean off the heavy coat of molasses at an aid station which was established at Notton Avenue only to be shocked when who they thought were nuns waddled away and began to slide down the street on their bellies. Not deterred by the strange circumstances the firemen continued to dig with their bare hands and helmets until they managed to save all of the penguins which they housed inside their own fire station for a week until they were escorted to the City Zoo. The famous 'Molasses Penguin' exhibit became a huge attraction for the zoo and became known worldwide.

In the aftermath it took over 87,000 man hours to remove the molasses and the smell was said to have lingered for many years. According to local folklore, molasses left from this disaster can still be smelled on hot days.
