  jaseee Chief Train Controller




While unpleasant for staff and passengers stuck in the thick of it, at least it seemed to be a very 'orderly' delay. Every line just seemed to grind to a halt at almost the same time, and then when services resumed there were no cancellations or transpositions (as far as I'm aware).

"smithagain"


There was (assume this was for the 13/02 delay). The train I was on (the 5:41pm Central to Penrith) was terminated at Central and we all had to get out. The train was changed to go to Liverpool via Bankstown, stopping at Redfern and Liverpool only.

"Blackadder"


Yep, it sure was.  Saw it two way between Wollstonecraft and St Leonards at about 16:55, and again about 2 and bit hours later when it finally arrived at HMC...  Sounds like it was a very unwell train...  Multiple electrical issues, with multiple things not working 'as advertised'...  
That crew certainly earned their pay today...

No problem AFAIK, except to be the unlucky one immediately following 129 run.

Having spoke to the driver of the run after the event, the train pulled the power twice, Lit the thing up like a Christmas tree and lost Brake pipe pressure all in a single moment. As for what it was and having not asked, it wasn't an A set. Dare I say it'll be sitting in the back of Hornsby sheds feeling sorry for itself. One has to wonder, what did they do to the overhead down there during the last shutdown?
