"Phil, the 7:14 AM Sandringham train from Ripponlea will now run. Connex apologises for any inconvenience."
So that's today's burning question, had I seen the second message before racing off to get ready, should I have trusted that second message anyway?
When I get to the station and hit the green button, the 07:14 is stated to be running, but they decline to say when it’s expected, a big clue that it may be delayed. I think making the effort to get the 06:59 was the right decision - it's a couple of minutes late.
Home on the 17:38 - on time but very crowded. Possibly people had to let the 17:27 go, since the 17:17 was cancelled it would've been pretty full.
