Thankfully nobody sat next to me in cattle class, so at least that was a small mercy.
Goes without saying that the 6.05am service was late, although now it is a regular train and not a "sprinter", that is to be expected. Anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes past the old arrival time.
I have some serious thinking to do about whether I make the move to Melbourne & eliminate trains entirely.
