As a consequence of the rolling stock being out of position, a 6 car comeng was running the Alamein shuttles last night, looked even more empty than it usually is
Announcements at Flinders Street were made for the 70/75/72/109 tram services to Camberwell/Box Hill and Lonsdale St buses for Doncaster/Mitcham area. In the loop, they suggested taking the Glen Waverley train to Burnley (which was almost impossible as mentioned above).
At 1730-1800hrs, lots of empty car movements formed by up services arriving at Flinders Street headed west (to Flemington?) with at least two banked on the Burnley viaduct. Glen Waverley services ran via the Clifton Hill viaduct around 1750hrs, delaying those services as well. A better solution would have been to run more (unscheduled) services to Glen Waverley for connecting trams (16/72) and buses (734, 703, 700, 888/9, etc) Also it would help clear the crowd in the loop. At least the communication (and alternative options) were announced this time. Not perfect, but getting better.
