Weird Millenium Train messages

Postby Y2Jackie » Fri Apr 21, 2006 10:48 pm

Has anyone else had any strange things come up on the screen on the Milleniums?

When they were new, I was on an East Hills train and as it left Revesby it said Next stop: Penrith. We were all like O_O for a little. Then we pulled up at Panania and it said "this station is Penrith". Tho if I were a driver I think I'd mix things up a bit for fun too...

Stopping pattern announcements are part of Guard's duties. Drivers have got enough to keep them occupied as it is. [8D]

One day it was really hot and I didn't want to be at work, We were somewhere on the East Hills line when just for the hell of it I played 'next stop Bondi Beach'.
It's been removed now but when you played next stop Wirragulla it was followed by some funky music, yes the programmer lived near there.

Haha nice one au_daniel! Sorry guys, it's a bit of a train crew in-joke.

I've known of guards who will play "next stop ayers rock" heeeheeee Or if some dodgy sorts get on, swearing and yelling etc, I play the " Uniformed and plain clothes Police are currently checking tickets on this train" Or it's something to that effect. Then chuckle to myself when they get off at the next station clutching their longnecks in paperbags.
Find me the guards compartment, raving naked under the blue light... ;)

Did that once leaving Redfern early one Sun morning and some guy got up and went to the vestibule in the 4th car then spent the whole trip to Ashfield nervous and constantly watching up and downstairs waiting for Transits etc. Then got off and as we were leaving was checking out the train looking for them. He then would have waited 30mins on a cold Ashfield platform for the next train.

nice one!

i've heard/seen that happen a few times now, it's so funny watching them looking out for the transits, even though everyone else in the carraige knows why that announcement was put on

new trains

Postby sabo-tag3 » Fri Sep 07, 2007 11:37 am

The new trains have the most gayest voiceover.

When you arrive at a station. The asshole in the background says "This station is WHO GIVES A FUCK. We can see 4 ourselfs

Ive had a few of them:

Stopping at:
???

We can play the announcements:
This train will stop at Macqurie Park and all that jazz,

Sometimes on empty trains we have a little fun with the destos and all sorta of things come up.

The one thing that is good also is that it accepts all run numbers in the SWTT. I chucked in CL22 once and "Sydney Terminal via Summit Tank came up.
An 8 car train has a total of 16 doors, don't feel obliged to all use the same one!

A new train running on the Illawarra line would be weird
