This picture of the odd behaviour of technology ...
And to a comment writer who suggested that having so many trains "on time" was a positive achievement; please remember that "on team" means "on time" when the train was last "reported" electronically. As trains enter the appropriate signalling area, they often suddenly cease to be "on time".
Even on a good day you would expect more than one train in a screenful to waver from the schedule - if only by a minute or two.
But not fbb's which sits outside in the weather - and he is too mean to day the asking price of £50 each display.
And Talking Of Electronic Displays ...
Travel South Yorkshire has begun installing "proper" display screens. At least this one has been spotted opposite Sheffield Children's Hospital.
Some operators also use them to display weather information; but, rather than straining the eyes, most passengers will be satisfied by stepping out from under the shelter and experiencing the weather in real time!
But the bus in heritage livery is well worth a second look.
And Talking of Electronic Information
fbb had a moderate moan that Travel South Yorkshire had publicised extra "strike-busting" journeys on Stagecoach X17 between Sheffield and Barnsley on a separate unprinted non-leaflet rather than letting customers see a merged timetable.
But common sense has prevailed and, in a revised edition ...
But has Stagecoach produced a printed leaflet?

There won't be any in Basingstoke ...
And A Model fbb Might Buy
Hornby has announced this delightful little shunting loco as part if its expanding 2019 range.
The model comes with a "match truck". This is to provide an extra set of wheels to ensure that the 12 volts can find its way into the loco even if its short wheelbase loses contact with the rails on wobbly bits of track (of which fbb's layout has a surfeit). Note the wire joining the two vehicles.
A hint for Mrs fbb as a birthday prezzy for her ever loving spouse? Perhaps not; Hornby are asking £80 a pop although there are on-line firms discounting to just over £70.
