Thu 13 April - Same again...

Having got home from Perth well after midnight again (Qantas and Connex must be run by the same management) I'm having a late start this morning. And so is the 09:37!

It really is looking like the off-peak trains are just as tardy as the peak trains. And that does suggest that Connex' stats need to be independently audited and the results made public.

We're in danger of scoring an orange this morning, but a three minute wait at Richmond ensures we're sufficiently late to score a red!

Home on the 18:01 and it's pretty much on time.

I agree with you on the need for an independent audit. I find it hard to believe the figures they are producing with or without the 5.59 allowance (or whatever it is)!

This week especially has been particularly bad i think.

Hmm, todays travels, and those on my 'last week's' Tuesday, in outer-peak, faired very-well for me.

I stayed at Flinder Street on both afternoons and took not of services within a 30-minute period.

All trains departed less than a minute from it's advertised time, and only three train had arrived late, departed late (not exceeding 8 minutes.

Much different during peak hour, supporting most of my claims.

Trains may arrive 5 minutes late, and the mild 'snowballing' effect. Effectively meaning that 'that service' is going to be late for the period it 'is in service' until it is back to storage...

seriously, when are you going to use a spellchecker? It seems that you are unable to make one post without a typo!
