@jonoabroad I was going to take it in yesterday for another go, but I was running late and thought I’d figured out a workaround.

@perissology Thanks very much. That was commissioned by @crikey_news rather than as a pitch from me. I think Guy Rundle’s idea, even.

@NicholasFryer There is all that, but it’s a very different feel arriving at a Blue Mountains station alone in the wee hours. And cold.

@ApostrophePong Yes, it looks like you have quite a few train journeys.

via Plume for Android in reply to ApostrophePong

@jbevear Yeah the 0018 Central to Lithgow is some strange relic of the industrial age, as far as I can tell.

@NicholasFryer On the Gawler line, the late night driver would stop between stations to let me jump off, ‘cos it was closer to my house.

@NicholasFryer Mind you, I think he was as stoned as I was. Allegedly. Times have changed.

@ApostrophePong I’ve been watching your photos. I am jealous of your holiday.

@TheFailedProjek Oh. You must be one of the people I complain about.

It’s a four-car double deck train with maybe 20 or 30 passengers.

We’ve arrived at Strathfield too early and must wait two minutes. That’ll teach the driver to fang it.

via Plume for Android

@TheFailedProjek Maybe there’s a Penrith train at that time, but the last Blue Mountains service is 0018.

via Plume for Android in reply to TheFailedProjek

We are scheduled to arrive at Wentworth Falls at 0213.

There’s something kinda special and quiet but also nostalgic about the post-midnight trains.
