Werribee express sign wrong

The TV screens for trains running express Newport to Laverton only have two blank lines. There are three stations being skiped. Why has this been shown for years with the wrong amount of stations?

They're waiting until you've rebuilt Paisley for $100,000 to update it.

The PIDs are referring to Galvin and Paisley.
This has been discussed in the "PIDs going bonkers" thread.

The number of skipped stations is correct as two.

Via  Westona there are 3 stations in Seaholme, Altona & Westona .

BUT the  Werribee direct services run via the mainline and do not stop at Paisley & Galvin  simply because there are no longer any platforms there. So that is why it shows two dotted lines, for two deceased stations .

It's an express train. If it's skipping 1 or 97 stations why does it matter?

Two blank lines probably means that the train travels via the direct route, and 3 lines means that it travels express via Altona, perhaps.
