Please buy the train driver a compass!

The other day I asked train control how many directions trains on the Western Line went.

Two they said.
I argued.
Take a look at today's typical txt messages:
8.13am Due to a technical fault train services in both directions on the Western Lineare delayed by approx 23 mins. Services departing on time from Britomart.
5.01pm Due to a mechanical fault train services in both directions on the Western Line are delayed by approx 12 mins. Services departing Britomart on time.

In my simple world, trains go to Waitakere from the Brit and to the Brit from Waitakere. I make that two directions. But if services are also leaving the Brit to Waitakere on time that means there must be three directions.

What is the third? Derailment?
