Welcome back to work, Len’s trains were stuffed as a special present for you

Len Brown’s train set welcomed people back to work by breaking down this morning.

A track fault is signalling woe for Auckland train commuters coming into the city this morning.

Auckland Transport said all lines near Britomart in Central Auckland may be affected by cancellations and delays up to 20 minutes.

The delays have been caused by a points failure outside the Britomart Tunnel.

The fault comes as many people return to work after the New Year break.

Public transport is so cool…and expensive…and subsidised.

But don’t you just love spin put on this by Fairfax?

Commuting to work by rail has become increasingly popular in Auckland where car commuters can face large traffic jams.

In September last year the city’s rail commuter trips hit 12 million – overtaking Wellington.

Yeah…dummies, because Petrol was well over $2 per litre…watch the slump in rail traffic now that fuel prices are dropping.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
