A third question arises. To what extent do minor cuts like this reduce the total number of passengers carried? Has anyone done any studies or do the companies simply "hit and hope"? [fbb is currently watching a bit of the UK Snooker Championship from York!]
Beyond Belief No 239.
And it is from our friends at South Yorkshire PTE.
There is a cosy waiting room adjacent to the two tram platforms.
The PTE, ever anxious to make a bob or two, have recently install and Amazon collection point, a "locker". You can ask Amazon to deliver your box of delights to Meadowhall. You then type in various codes, a door springs open and you collect your package, hop on a tram and carry the seasonal goodies back home.
Unfortunately the ever considerate PTE has arranged for "The Locker" to block the timetable display frame in such a way that said frame can neither be opened or removed and installed elsewhere.
Well done all concerned!
fbb's anonymous correspondent assures him that a responsible personage from the PTE (are there any such?) has been delegated the job of sorting it out by either removing "The Locker" or the frame, or maybe knocking down the wall to get at both.
