Re: WAERN use

One of the problems with WAERN that I've noticed, isn't actually a WAERN problem, it’s the operators. What I've noticed is that because people are so set into their old habits. "in this situation we use channel XX, and then we use channels X Y Z" etc like they have been doing for the last god know h...

Re: Train Lines - Disruptions - 2011

This is interesting... They are going to have clarkson trains operating from the above-ground station (Departing platform 7, arriving platform 9) and mandurah trains terminating at the esplanade from Boxing day to new year's eve.

Re: So how do they know?

I had imagined that the cameras would broadcast all the time..but you raise a good point, they may only be triggered as required. I'll keep that in mind. If they were on all the time, how would they pick up the camera's??? It's not like they have cameras all along the track... or do they? The DAV c...

Re: Ticket Checking devices

Hi all, After riding the train to Mandurah today the transit security guards used some green gizmo to check our smartriders. Any idea how they work? Is the tag on status stored on the card, or does the card reader connect to the network to check if the card has tagged on? Cheers, Numloxx The status...
