I am trying to do something I thought was easy: find out which trains run from Ealing Broadway to Woking.
Being a simple person I am, easily swayed by big billboards outside stations, I used a new train line web site instead of tried and trusted ones (d@mn Transport for London, fooling me into thinking that transport in and around London is simple!)
After a brief wait with flashing, reassuring messages that they are trying to help me out with my query, the following search results display:
This reminds me of any House episode, where the symptoms are analysed on the white board. They then try and try again to cure the patient, who suffers numerous cardiac arrest or seizure episodes in the process. Eventually, the diagnosis is found around the 35 minute mark of the episode, followed by a quick wrap up.
Why couldn’t this site rush forward to the 35 minute mark, and just tell me something, anything. Give me better choices, better results.
Oh, and I still don’t know how to get from Ealing to Woking.
