I am no longer a regular commuter and until now I have not bought into the rail dispute. But last Tuesday I took the train from Kogarah to Kings Cross at 11.40am and arrived and 12.05pm. It was a fast train and I was quite happy with the journey time.4:14pm ex Kings Cross stops at all between Sydenham and Kogarah and is scheduled to take 28 minutes. 4:24pm the same stopping pattern and journey time. That's a whopping 3 minutes longer than your morning trip which you were satisfied with. But if it took longer, and the train was held up at Tempe, then you must have fallen victim to some unforeseen problem. It happens.
However, coming home at 4.10pm I could not take the Cronulla train so had to wait a bit longer.
