Chaos on the Railway line.

Yesterday morning there was a problem with the overhead powerlines associationed with the trains, and all trains between Cleveland and the city were disrupted all day. What chaos! Train travellers were transported by bus from stations beyond Murarrie, to Murarrie to catch the train from that station. There was quite a deal of confusion.

Late in the day there was also a gas leak emergency situation at Fortitude Valley and the Brunswick St Station was closed too. So I'm sure there are a few QR people trying to get over the dramas today.

It is always good to know how quickly the system operates to provide alternate transport so quickly. Of course many folk who heard about it early chose to take their cars to the city and there was excessive traffic on the roads too.

It would be nice if we could get a ferry into the city from somewhere in this neighbourhood!
