Thu 24 November - Just about OK...

The 07:14 just sneaks in before 07:30, narrowly avoiding an orange.

However going home is a different kettle of fish... clearly the 17:27 has been cancelled, since the 17:38 is absolutely chockers. And no SMS alert was issued. We arrive at Ripponlea about three minutes late.

Memo to self - ring Connex tomorrow and ask when the SMS alert service is going to be reinstated.

I got an SMS today (shock!) for advising the cancellation of the 4:28pm Flinders St - Frankston...pity it came through at 5:20pm.

What's worse is that there was an accident at Chelsea this afternoon, and trains were terminating at Mordialloc. And guess what - NO message!

Lucky I delayed my return home, as I managed to time my trip beautifully - get to Mordialloc and waiting are at least 6 buses. Only train load fitted into 3 of them - and I got a row to myself! Great driver too.

Maybe we should convert the train network into busways like they have in Adelaide! :P

I received the 17:27 cancellation message at 18:33 - very useful! Only come through on Orange and not Vodafone.

This morning I received advance warning about the 07:39 being cancelled - came through on Orange at 07:02 and Vodafone at 07:05. Seems like they have been having some problems but maybe they're now fixed. Not that any of this matters as there are people dying you know!

Those "people dying" are on the Frankston line at Chelsea...and no we didn't get any SMS for Friday's death either.

Joe, you possibly missed the context - this was on Tueday...

So there's a bunch of blokes blocking the entrance and, in my usual fashion, I say in a very loud voice "What a waste of time for everybody". To which one of our Connex people replies "You're bothered about this, there's people dying you know".
