On Campbelltown Ticket Gates

Burga is a cityrail employee (signalman). Maybe now I can find out from him how the signalling works and why signal failures happen (what is a signal failure anyhow? Is it those traffic lights for trains? If so, why do they break down, because road traffic lights don’t.) Anyway, his reasons for reopening the gates are this:

the reason they dont use them is because they are scared…think of how many ppl out there dont buy tickets, think of the trouble that will occur when they ask these fuckin junkies and scum for tickets. To much trouble ..i doubt that that the ticket collecting will go on for long.
its probably only a publicity stunt.
