Nightmare on Newmarket Ave

The signals failed again in peak rush time this morning - leaving at least seven trains stranded out of Newmarket in the middle of nowhere. We were trapped on a closed train for at least 30 minutes, trying to work out if it would be quicker to walk but we were not allowed to leave.
As usual no information (there is no intercom on board, the guards have no idea what is happening). Scores of passengers again reached for their mobile to try to explain to their boss why they were late yet again.
Sighed one :" My boss does not believe me anymore. In 2005, how can anyone believe in Auckland that a train would be broken down once again for an hour."
