Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but Sydney’s passenger train network is experiencing ~ commuter chaos ~ this morning thanks to urgent signal repairs at Wynyard Station and a crock train at Central Station.

Transport NSW reports works on the Wynyard Station signal system have impacted services into the city from Berowra, Richmond, and Emu Plains, along with trains between Hornsby and the North Shore.

While the issue at Wynyard has apparently been sorted, “flow on delays” should be expected.

That was compounded by a malfunctioning train at Central Station, impacting services into the city from Parramatta, Leppington, Liverpool, Lidcombe, and Bankstown, along with trains between Bondi Junction, Waterfall, and Cronulla.

Outbound trains to Macarthur via Airport or Sydenham have also been hit.

The mechanical issue has also been fixed, but “flow on delays” from that whole deal are still on the cards.

Basically, most of the network is really Going Through It right now.

Commuters now face extensive delays and masses of other tired, downtrodden workers just trying to make a goddamn living in the big city.

PEDESTRIAN.TV’s own Senior Style Editor Melissa Mason said she waited 45 minutes to travel 5km via train before opting for a bus instead.

“As soon as one tiny thing goes wrong the entire city goes into meltdown,” Mason said.

Stunningly, her full statement on the delays is actually too profane to publish here.

Commuters have been advised to check in with Transport NSW for continuing updates on the drama.
