BrizCommuter is increasingly getting fed up with flickering fluorescent lighting on Queensland Rail's trains. After having to wait 20 minutes for a train home in the evening peak, the prospect of being surrounded by flickering and strobing lights makes the commute even more unenjoyable. BrizCommuter really doesn't care if the train has a fancy new branding on the outside, but does care if the train's interior lighting is trying to do an impression of a nightclub! BrizCommuter cannot remember seeing any flickering lights on trains in the UK, Japan, and even Melbourne, so why are they so common in Brisbane? Please, QR stop the flickering! A long term solution would be to replace the fluorescent lights with LED alternatives when trains are refurbished.

  1. Gah! Yes!

    Is this designed specifically to drive us insane? I move anywhere else to avoid this torture.
