A hungry traveller found the perfect dinner solution while on the move – by getting a pizza delivered on a train.

Dubstep producer DJ Artwork, a member of the Magnetic Man project, was travelling from Glasgow to Sheffield over the weekend when he decided to order a takeaway to his train carriage.

The artist contacted Domino’s, who successfully delivered his ham, mushroom, beef and pineapple Pizza Legend when the train pulled up to the platform at Darlington.

His video of the pizza delivery has been widely shared on social media and has been viewed nearly 20,000 times on Facebook.

He appealed to his 44,000 Twitter followers for help getting the pizza delivered, joking that “he panicked a bit” by asking for pineapple as one of his toppings.

The DJ said the whole train carriage were ‘excited’ about the pizza order and he even attempted to get champagne delivered to another stop as he travelled back from Scotland.

Another Domino’s outlet rose to the pizza challenge again, 24 hours later, by delivering a pizza to another train at Kettering Station, Northamptonshire.

Comedian Chris Ramsey previously pulled the same trick when travelling between King’s Cross and Newcastle with a little help from his Twitter followers.

Meanwhile, a ‘hacker’ with a passion for pizza was delighted when he discovered a loophole which meant he could order Domino’s for free.

Paul Price, a cyber security expert based in the UK, explained in a blog post how he exploited a bug in the pizza chain’s phone app.

Another fast food fan immediately regretted complaining to Domino's after a pizza arrived at his door “without toppings”.

While a domestic abuse victim managed to alert police to her ordeal with a ‘pizza order’.
