As there was an impending Railink departure, I hurried to the ticket counter to purchase my ticket into the city to prevent a 30 minute wait for the next train. Despite the Railink running more frequently now at a regular 30 minute frequency, it’s still annoying when you miss one and have to wait for the full headway for the next train.

Here on, I didn’t take photos of the boarding process as I was rushing to board the departing train.

Overall, another pleasant trip on board the Railink. As seen from most of the pictures, the GoPro does not actually perform well for train shots, especially of scenery out of the window. Perhaps I’ll stick to regular cameras for trains.
