(Doesn't make me happy or grumpy)

Uploading 3 NL232 recordings in a row to Youtube! Why on earth would anyone share audio files of these washing machines on wheels...

Possibly eliminating the need to board the rogue Morphettville SL202 CNG 873 again (Adelaide's other 1636).

Passengers who arrive about 11 minutes AFTER a train is due to leave, instead of around 5 to 10 minutes BEFORE a train is due, & the driver leaves - :lol: WITHOUT THEM! :lol:

No wonder the guard & staff gave dirty looks, not that I blame them.

I remember being in Adelaide station around 2000 or a bit after watching a Belair train depart from platform 1, and the driver must have stopped at least 4-6 times to enable late passengers to board. In my opinion, trains should just leave without them to reduce liability for late running. There's hardly any time to make up in train schedules, in comparison to Adelaide's very on time running friendly bus timetables.

Finding out that Perth's transport agency upholds standards that keep the Bustech VST shut out from consideration!

TA3001, the passengers had to swap platforms as the four of the cars had failed air-conditioning. The train that did make the service was already 11 minutes late, as they had to join the two four trains together. But this "dear" on a walker & her companions didn't arrive until 11:26 & she was "screaming" out "Hey wait for us". And yes, I said you should arrive BEFORE a train is due to leave.

Should be more of it, that is unless for valid reasons, thou should shut thy doors-ith & leavith!
