Fri 3 March - A foretaste...

Now I'd be the first to admit that I'm hardly the world's biggest optimist in some areas (OK, Mrs CW might be first to point this out!). But I can't see how Pollyanna herself could be confident that Sir Topham's train set will cope during the Games if she'd witnessed yesterday evening's fiasco at Flinders Street. Yet I didn't see anything about the incompetent buffoon stepping down when I visited The Age website this morning...

In spite of Sir Topham's attempts to deliver us a third world rail system, the 07:14 arrives pretty much on time.

But of course the temperature is above 30°C so naturally the trains are all up the creek again. Fortunately ours are nowhere near as bad as yesterday and the 17:49 pulls in only a little late at Flinders Street. We get to Ripponlea about three minutes late.
