    Default Trains interrupted in West Auckland

    Anyone know why the line was shut down between Avondale and Swanson for a while today? All I could get from Newmarket station staff was "an emergency services callout" which I inferred to be the train had hit something, but I've not seen anything on the news.

    Dunno Tony, but boy, were you right, about the latest version of Linux Mint.
    Vista had fewer issues, consider this an apology.

    Indeed it is a pig, remember I was trying to help you with it?
    I am getting a phone line soon.
    Will have ADSL, will download PCLinuxOS.
    Might take a few weeks though.
    Will report back.

    A man was hit on the St Georges Road crossing this afternoon. Caused flow-on effects at Britomart and therefore elsewhere too.

    yet again some moron tried to take a train on and lost. I have no idea whats wrong with people today, must be averaging about 1 train incident per month at least this year so far. Feel sorry for the train drivers.

    Would that not have been a LACK of flow-on effects . . . ?
