Absolutely, but if it's like trains, then you have to figure we have a copy 
of the train schedule, and we can tell whether the next train is going 
somewhere we'd like to be.  And if it is, we want to be on the platform 
waiting when it comes along.  You have a real train network, so you wouldn't 
understand how important it is to get on the train that goes where you want 
- because otherwise our government will decide we don't need it, and slash 
the schedule yet again.

Oh, how I love to mangle a metaphor...
