So, those of you coming from Geelong/Werribee, what train do you think you'll catch?

Righto - looking at the timetable, I see there's a 2:29pm out of South Geelong that reaches Spencer Street at 3:33pm. I'll aim to get to Spencer Street a little beforehand and amuse myself with photographing trains. Is there a specific platform that Geelong trains always go to at Spencer Street? If you don't know, I'll just wait on the overbridge linking the platforms at the Bourke Street (northern) end.

And yes, I'll definitely have my camera with me.

Yeah, 9-14 are the suburban lines only. I wondering if maybe a specific platform was for Geelong trains, like how Upfield trains are always platform 11. But it doesn't really matter - with my appearance and the fact I'll be photographing every train in sight, I'm not exactly going to be hard for you guys to spot! Here's a fairly recent picture of me, for those of you who haven't seen that one from the Auckland Vertigo gig. Though my hair is a bit shorter at the moment, mercifully.

The 'fro is Adam Clayton October-era-tastic.

I'll try to find my Joshua Tree t-shirt amidst my pile of ironing that never seems to do itself. Though the forecast is currently for 27 degrees, so I'll probably be wearing a long-sleeved shirt instead. I need to keep my arms out of the sun, and anything over 24 is really too hot to wear a blazer over the Joshua Tree shirt.

Wait, so both COBL_04 and bono_man2002 are tall Victorian U2 fans named Daniel? FFS! It was bad enough having one of them making me feel short!

I'd bring some of my bootlegs if, you know, we had something to play them on. I'll try to bring some of my U2 stuff anyhow. I'm pretty poor so I can't really splurge on food/booze ... I'm trying to decide what to bring. Maybe I should bring some of my apple and cinnamon muffins? I was planning to bake some tomorrow anyway ...

It's cheaper than buying the stuff pre-made and somewhat enjoyable too.

I have the ingredients for either apple and cinammon or chocolate muffins. I suppose I'll have to bake a batch and bring some along. Anyone else got anything they can bring? Does anybody have something like a picnic blanket? I'm sure we don't have to have one, but it could be handy ...
