Mon 8 August - Uh oh late again...
I really have serious doubts about the ability of these PDP-11s to handle the simple signalling needs of the network. How hard can it be?
Just when you're thinking "Hmmm while we've had quite a few delays, there's not been many cancellations lately..." they cancel the 17:38, my favourite train. Then the 17:49 departs seven minutes late. Bet that was cosy, with 170% more passengers than normal!
Anyway, I wait for the 18:01, as do many others judging by the numbers piling in at Richmond. Thanks Connex, I promise I won't take you for granted again. Arrive at Ripponlea a couple of minutes late for good measure.
