Hey, great photo though.

It's odd. I've been taking trains a lot this year, having been in attendance at uni, but I've never encountered a circumstance of a breakdown that has noticeably effected my journey. Strange, that; particularly since I've been travelling during the rush hour at most times.

Yes, I can say the same about both train and bus services. People complain about how 'unreliable' public transport is in Auckland, yet I beleive I've managed to catch over 95% of my PT services on time, and the other 5% of the time i just catch the following (or an alternative) service.

I suspect the 6am cancellation was related to a freight train breakdown (loco out of fuel!) at Avondale in the early morning.
