Oh how novel for you. Since we all know you hate the train did you not ask for a loan car for the day?

The train was jam packed, by the time it got to Paekakariki, it was already jam packed with people standing. At Porirua, it was like a cattle station. And was amazed to see just how many extra passenges can be forced onto an already overcrowded train.
I'll leave it to others in the know as to whether there were network issues on the Kapiti Line - if there were then thats unfortunate. And unfortunately loadings would have hit crush in that case.

Because NZTA havent given them clearance to be used on the network for unit testing yet, let alone for driver training or revenue service.
