The Day Britomart Went Blank
At Britomart, the display screens showing what trains are leaving and when fell silent.
Today they went blank (left) and announcements had to be made to tell people where to go.
On board a guard also kept telling people what train they were on in case they had got on the wrong one.
Good luck to anyone catching the Helensville express by mistake.
This isn’t the first time but it’s the first time I can remember they made an effort to actually inform people. Previously people have come into the Brit, seen blank screens and some thought the trains were cancelled so left and hunted for a bus.
This continues a shocker of a week for commuters – another rush hour train on the western line was cancelled this morning.
What Mr FixIt do we call? Steven Joyce? David Shearer? Any suggestions? Thank goodness it’s Friday tomorrow.
