Tue 13 June - Nice break...

Well big thanks to somebody else's queen for the nice long weekend. We came into the city yesterday to see the new Disney/Pixar movie, Cars. We'd vaguely planned to go on the train, as my 4yo son still likes trains, but as that would have cost us close to $20 versus about $2 worth of petrol, it didn't quite stack up. The trains are arguably less stressful than dealing with the incompetent morons on the road, provided they run to the timetable...

The 07:14 starts out pretty much on time this morning, but a few minutes waiting in the yards results in us being four minutes late at Flinders Street.

Home on the 18:12... it's quite a surprise when at 18:11 they announce the train will be three minutes late - very rare for advice before the scheduled departure time and a welcome change. As it happens it leaves four minutes late and manages to lose a further three minutes on the way, but hey, it's a start!
