Train of no thought
Published: Friday 2004-06-11.
SJ has doene it again, put together a time table that makes it impossible to ride their trains. To take the trip from Frövi, the station that is closest to my parents’ house, to Oslo on a Sunday night, all I had to do earlier was to take one of their local trains down to Hallsberg and jump onboard the train from Stockholm there. But I cannot do that anymore, no siree, now the night train doesn’t stop at the main train junction in Hallsberg, which is why SJ’s automatic ticket booking system suggests a trip by train to Örebro, followed by a bus trip to Kristinehamn, where, according to it, I am supposed to sit for one and a half hours waiting for the train from Stockholm.
No, thank you. Then I’d rather take the bus all the way from Örebro.
And SJ are wondering why they are losing passengers.
