Any one else notice that they have removed the platform key map? I guess since the platforms are changing - so maybe a new Armadale tt soon/.

Oh yeah, interesting.

They may as well do that for the rest, as there's only 4 others to do, and because the works will be going for a while.

^ I just had a look at the Armadale and Midland TT and it has been updated to have the platform key removed - Joondalup, and Mandurah have not. Notice the * near the date - I have seen this on re done tt with the same effective date.

They've been doing that for a while. It indicates modified adjustments such as re-alignment of map and etc... Although some have been updated but not their effective date. That normally just means the timetable appearance has improved.

I remember when I first saw the * after the effective date. I thought there was some smallprint about it! I looked all over the timetable for what it meant.

There should be a $200 fine for any document that uses an asterix without an accompanying explanation on the same page*.

* You shouldn't have to search through a whole document or brochure, etc to find the asterix explanation - it should be at the bottom of the page on which the asterix is used!!

The PTA could be getting at the public as if the * is to indicate a minor timetable change. Nothing serious or fatal.

This sums it up best. In fact it has been the practice for many years.
