Don't you mean the 81 was pulling the S set because of power supply failures at Mortdale not broken down.

Anyone know what service was broken down this morning on Platform 1 at Parramatta? And also the train that seemed to be backed up behind it? Thanks.

And on the only afternoon where I intended to head down to Lewisham. Ended up walking down there from Ashfield that afternoon. Explains the helicopter that showed up around 1400-1430.

Was a really interesting afternoon. Police, a Fire truck and a few rescue squads vehicles around. Kind of ironic how it happen at Summer Hill station, being that the ambulance station is right across the road.

After that, it took me around 40 minutes to get into the City (had other arrangements).

Good timing too when this happened. Right on the start of the evening peak.

It's a shame how these things happen.
