Right now I’m at work. 6:30am on a Tuesday morning. And thats not the worst of it – I’ve been here over an hour. Ahh the joys of IT and outage windows.

The funny thing is, the outage window started at 5am. But the earliest I could get here was 5:15am. Why? Clearly Cityrail agree with me on this point – no-one should need to be at work at 5am. I caught the first train to run in the morning, which leaves Holsworthy (my station) at 4:25am. There aren’t any earlier trains to catch. Period.

Oh well, at least the train was nice and empty. The really eerie thing was the train station. Mine was the first car there. And the quietness! Even the act of locking my car sounded abnormally loud.
