  1. There are still plenty of empty trains or with a handful of passengers still travelling through Glen Innes. I see train after train during the day with no one on board. Trains with no fare paying passengers must be good for the system.

    1. Brian, have you checked out the numbers getting buses as well off peak? Trains get from Glen Innes to Britomart in less than half the time it takes a bus
