I didn’t see anything about this on the news tonight, but I guess that the current Great Depression will keep minds elsewhere in general. Of more pressing concern to me is that fact that all trains are out between Sutherland and Wollongong. Perhaps some bozo did something to cause the train derailment, but it’s more likely that this is due to poor maintenance.
I’m hoping that we’ll see this resolved before too long. If not, it will cause severe problems for the ‘Gong ride, as I’m sure that more than half of the riders depend on the train to get back to Sydney. Organizing buses for us all that weekend will be a pain, especially since City Rail put on special services last year (as I expect they have done previously – I’d know that for sure, except that I used to get the bus back on prior years). Perhaps we should be thinking about riding back to Sutherland from Wollongong 🙂 That’s only an extra 55 km.
More seriously, maybe we could coax Bobbie into picking us up.
