Southern Cross Station’s new Water Tower Clock

Last week a new clock was unveiled at Southern Cross Station – not a brand new one, but a 130 year old ‘Water Tower Clock’ that was originally installed at Flinders Street Station. A nice piece of heritage restored – but unfortunately the motives behind it are less than pure.

Public transport timekeeping troubles

On the weekend Victoria switched over the daylight savings time. Meanwhile on the railways, they have some trouble of their own keeping track of time.

V/Line operates on 24 hour time, Metro uses 12 hour time

Daylight savings time and your camera clock

Daylight savings time: every year I need to go around the house to change the clocks forwards an hour, and then do it all over again to put them back an hour a few months later. Having the incorrect time on the wall clock in the kitchen doesn’t worry me, but one incorrect clock that *really* pisses me off is the one in my digital camera. So how do you go about fixing it after the fact?

Get out from under the clocks!

Welcome to Flinders Street Station, one part tourist hackspot, another part poorly designed railway station that doubles as a maze. Get outta my way, or I’ll have to push my way through!
