Re: More count-down clock lunacy

I think of them as position indicators, rather than actual countdowns, and that informs my decisions a lot around the system. At my regular stations, I've come to recognize what "x min" really means as to where the train is. After that it's a matter of knowing the trackwork going on and anything else out of the ordinary around the system, and that all leads to what course of action I'll take. If it's not a station I'm accustomed to, I just take a guess based on whatever timetable data I may remember as to what "x min" means. I rarely assume that in exactly "x min" I'll be getting on the train, unless I'm in a brand new spot and completely unfamiliar with the timetables.
