Just a minute...!

I'm back for a couple of weeks but won't bother with the daily updates again just yet. But I have to comment on the changing of "my" train from 07:14 to 07:13. Apparently they shifted it one minute earlier for some bizarre reason. It still goes out from Flinders Street as the 07:35 Williamstown, so why the change?

But the timetable was updated several weeks ago, and not only are the SMS cancellation messages still calling it the 07:14, but on the few times I've caught it the platform announcement called it the 07:14 too. And of course it's never come in any earlier than 07:14 on the few occasions I have caught it.

So what's that change all about? Answers on a postcard, please...

♪My baby takes the morning train♪...

Not sure Sheena would be quite so jolly if her baby were an early morning commuter on the Sandy line! Seems like almost every day either the 07:14 is cancelled or it's the 06:59 that's gone so the 07:14 is jam packed. I'm in Perth again this week (should be pretty much all over by late November) so I get to avoid the hassles.
