Wed 24 August - Yay Connex...
Tempting fate there wasn't I? At lunchtime I'm heading down to South Yarra with a workmate, might as well go for the 12:27 on the Sandy line. Stand and wait, no sign of the 12:27, screens go blank then the next train is the 12:42. Meanwhile a train on one of the other lines pulls in on platform 7 and they announce it's stopping at South Yarra - too late for us to get over there. Connex, why wouldn't you just tell us where our train was?
The monitor goes blank then back to showing 12:27 again. I suggest we go up the escalator and check what's happening on other lines. As we get up there, the 12:27 pulls in. We leave about ten minutes later than scheduled. Not one announcement was made about the delay.
Anyway, on to tonight. Waiting for the 17:38, the clock ticks over, no sign of the train. It rolls in about a minute or two late on platform 9. Again, no announcement about the delay - Connex, why wouldn't you just tell us where our train was? We get to Ripponlea about four minutes late.
