Yesterday, one week after my slicing and dicing, I managed to walk across the road and sit down at my cafe and have a cup of coffee. Take from this that these photos were taken before my slicing and dicing.
I still struggle to automatically use the name Southern Cross Station, Spencer Street Station usually coming to the fore.
Bicycle parking is forbidden. Yet maybe ten metres further into the station are bicycles chained to parking stands. Perhaps they are for staff to get around quickly....I think not.
Some of the station's roof pillows have been replaced after many being badly damaged by hail earlier this year. The new ones have release valves rather than collapsing under the weight of hailstones and rain.
Oh look, a set of shiny new train tracks! They are for the Regional Rail Link, a project to allow northern and western country trains to arrive in town without getting tangled up along the way with suburban trains.
And a train testing out the shiny new track.
The train popped out the other side of the connecting bridge. Right ho. I guess the new platforms 15 and 16 will be to the left of the train, so I don't know what the other track will be used for. I am confused. Driver, your train is running late, bypass So Cross Station using the western most track.
