Just examples of people believing the train is there for them only and not giving a toss about anyone else.

Does the union expect the government to commit to buying from Alstom before getting quotes from anyone else? That's a good way to get ripped off.

I don't think the Metro contract has anything to d ...

Yeah except you don't usually do preventative maintenance when people are trying to get to work.

Southern Cross escalators undergoing "maintenance" again this morning...

Nothing new here, standard government contract clause. "If we ask for more money you'll give it to us."

Along with "If we stuff up the job you'll give us more money to come back and fix it."

Still out of action this morning. No staff on the platforms, trains held up because people literally leaning against the train while waiting for space to clear.

Saw another article which stated the aircraft was on autopilot at the time, so that kept him in the air and woke up heading out to sea.

I doubt skipping breakfast was the cause, you'd have people f ...

Well it remains to be seen whether the new info will be of any use, but it's an improvement to station staff yelling "Stand clear train departing!!!" about 1/10th of a second after the train stops.

Not as silly as it sounds. Remember when Hawthorn had their after Grand Final party and metallized streamers shorted out the overhead between Hawthorn and Glenferrie?

Hope someone got in trouble for that headline, they forgot to capitalize every word to make it more sensationalist.
