  • Aren't both trains already gone by now, which is 18.35?

    I'd pick the one scheduled to leave earlier (18.14), if it is still there.

    Or if I am in a huge hurry, get tickets for both, and be prepared to jump from one to the other if the other starts moving ...
    • This is quite similar to a situation I was in 6 years ago in Taiwan.

      In Abigail's story, the time now is later than the announced delayed departures, but that just means the delay is more than they expected, or announced.

      I chose the train which arrived first (and was announced to leave first?).

      I was surprised when the other later-arriving train left first.

      But the kind conductor and train driver of the slow train helped me make a connection at the other station.

      Perhaps they were thinking that seeing the first train was so delayed, another delay extension would not be so important. Better to keep the delay on the less-delayed train as short as possible.
