With temperatures reaching over 40°c today Friday 20th November 2015 Sydney Trains and NSW Trainlink have the WOLO boards showing at most stations.
Technically WOLO doesn't stand for anything however Warning Of Line Overheat makes a lot of sense.
WOLO boards are shown when temperatures reach approx 38°c and above.
When train tracks get to hot they can buckle or be displaced so when a WOLO board is shown there is a speed restriction for the safety of passengers.

Below is a photo of one of the WOLO boards at Blacktown on Platform 2.

Anyway folks i hope you all had a great day and stayed cool on this very hot day.

Thank you all for reading and stay tuned for more Blogs!
