Tue 14 February - Valentine's Day...
I wonder if I should send a dozen red roses to Bruce Hughes? Maybe he'll be more responsive to my suggestions on how to improve his model railway!
The 07:14 is pretty much on time this morning and manages to avoid dumping us on platform 10... bonus.
Hit Flinders Street in plenty of time for the 17:49. Just as yesterday, there's a train sitting there on platform 8 and the monitors on 8 and 9 are blank. This time the doors are closed and the train is empty. Eventually they announce the front two carriages will form the Williamstown train, the rest of the train slinks off towards Spencer Street... er Southern Cross. Why are they subjected to a two-carriage train during peak hour? How would they all fit in? One of life's Connex mysteries.
Ours pulls into platform 9 with a minute to spare. We leave a minute or so late.
