The Train Story
The Train Story is based on an incident that happened to Jared, Gen and Richard on their way to the Asylum Europe 2 from 20th to 22nd May 2011 in Mannheim/Germany.
The short version is that Jared and Gen boarded a train to travel from Amsterdam to Frankfurt, along with Richard Speight, Jr. They accidentally left one suitcase on the platform, which they didn't realize until the doors had closed and the train was leaving. Jared than proceed to break the glass panel and use the emergency stop, which resulted in not only their train being stopped, but ALL trains in the vicinity.
The story became a popular anecdotes at Cons told by both Jared and Richard. Perhaps the best version of the story was told at Jus In Bello Italy 2016 when Genevieve Padalecki joined in to give some authenticity to the story!
