What could the attendant be doing? She's checking if there are still passengers boarding the train...she then signals the operator to go if everyone's safely in.

Below you could see more events posters at the passageway, some of them I have long planned to see but can't. Two unrelated posts for today....hmm, well, server is unaccesible and I have to make use of what I have in flickr or my notebook lol. Have a happy weekend everyone!

  1. Does she actually board the train as well, or stay behind at the station?

    And at least you found one person at this train station. LOL!

  3. These are a nice set of clear, clean and bright pictures. It reminds of our all too brief stay in Vienna, when we spent a bit of time in train stations.

    I must say that I prefer the attendants in Austria to those in Italy. One time in Turin, my wife and I had missed a connection to Rome and were attempting to ask the guard where to buy a ticket for the last train, which was about to leave. He just kept yelling (in Italian) "GET ON! JUST GET ON!"

    My wife was trying to explain to him in broken Italian (and better Spanish), and he just kept saying "Get on! I don't care that you haven't got a ticket, just GET ON!"

    It turns out that this is common practice in Italy. We're used to a little more order in Australia and neither of us would have dreamed of getting on without a proper ticket. Austria was a lot more like Australia, a nice comfortable sense of order!

  4. Vienna looks so hygienic - almost clinical.

  5. Chuck, attendants also board the trains, they are the last to board as they make sure no other passengers gets left behind or in between doors lol.

    They are really accomodating Fenix, since this is the older train, attendants would help those with stroller to board and to come down. Very friendly service!

    Hmmm-I was wondering if you are in Germany Kris, Australia is another city my husband and I wants to see...I also find the attendants helpful, sometimes you would notice those who are not locals could be the ones who are not responsive, even the drivers, happened to me not just once, bus drivers wouldn't stop which is a no no in Vienna's transpo system.

    Dagul, I think Vienna is in top 15 of cleanest cities...if you remember there are regular sweepers, moppers, even trash pickers that I posted sometime ago...even waste segregation is good...it has always been an ideal country for me, sana ganun tayo sa pinas...=D

    Thanks everyone and Happy weekend!

  6. The train I take to work also has those attendants/conductors. They make sure everyone has boarded and once aboard, they make sure everyone's paid. :) Do your kids have train sets?

  7. Finally, some moments without having to think on things to do tomorrow and with time to come and enjoy your posts!
    The train attendant looks much nicer than the ones I used to see here. The graffiti look as clean as the stations themselves; great! Finally, the April weather shots are stunning; isn't spring arriving in Vienna? ;))
    Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter where I'm now strolling around Bilbao!
    Have a great weekend!

  8. You mean do they check the tickets Panaderos? Hmm, much like the kundoktor natin sa Pinas? The ticket checkers here surprise passengers lol....they come very seldom and those who don't buy tickets are caught off guard....hihi. As mentioned, the fine is 60 euros plus the price for one ticket =D

  9. Gil, Bilbao! wow! Thanks for dropping by, it is spring but the snow surprised us! It was warm today and I hope it stays that way...kids get sick with weather change...

    Panaderos, you mean train sets they play with? not really,I bought them lots of lego blocks and my 4 yr old makes ships, trains, airplanes out of them ;-) Aint that better?

  10. Yes, the conductors do check tickets on a regular basis. They do so once passengers have seated themselves and after the train has left a stop. They also carry cash with them much like the bus conductors in the Philippines. They don't take credit cards, at least not the train line I take.

    Sounds like where you are, the system runs on an honor system.

  11. The first photo reminds me of a shot I took for my school's photo essay competition.

  12. In a way Panaderos that's true, but other people still don't buy tickets...a monthly ticket costs 49.50euros whereas the fine for not having a ticket is 60 + 1.70euros, cheaper really!

    It's funny too to watch and listen how those caught would deny...=D Palusot talaga!
