[quote="Robbb01"]-Through route the Frankston and Werribee services all day, everyday like it is currently planned. Trains would run every 10 minutes in interpeak.[/quote]
It would be a lot easier if there was a crossover from 10 to 9A East, so the service could use platforms 10 or 12 with out passing through another platform. Otherwise it would work well with trains running express Caulfield to South Yarra and Newport to Laverton (Run the Altona line as a shuttle from Newport to Laverton)
[quote="Robbb01"]-Create a 5 minute frequency in peak and interpeak on the Pakenham Line. We would do this by running the Cranbourne Service as a shuttle which comes every 15 minutes and runs from Dandenong to Cranbourne. [/quote]
Alternate trains starting and terminating at Pakenham and Westall off-peak, have all services start/terminate at Pakenham during peak times. Use 4 x 3 car Comengs to run the shuttle between Dandenong and Pakenham. A fourth platform would be required at Dandenong so the Cranbourne service is isolated from Pakenham/Gippsland service.
[quote="Robbb01"]The Gippsland V-line services would also need to terminate at Pakenham and V-line coach could replace them or passengers would need to get onto a suburban train.[/quote]
2 services an hour could fit into the timetable but no doubt a very slow service would be expected (But compare that to coaches on the Princes Hwy!)
[quote="Robbb01"]-Do the same for the Sydenham line. The Melton line could be a shuttle to Sunshine (i dont know how often it could run)[/quote]
Run Sydenham service every 5 minutes.
There is no such thing as the "Melton line", but squashing people from the "Ararat line" onto the already crowded Sydenham line would not work. Just run Ararat/Ballarat through to Southern Cross.
[quote="Robbb01"]-Do they same for the Craigieburn Line [/quote]
Albury-Wodonga will use the Albion to Jacana SG line, Seymour trains could run to Essendon. Run Craigieburn trains every 10 minutes.
[quote="Robbb01"]-Run the Upfield Line every 10 minutes in interpeak[/quote]
Run the Upfield line every 10 minutes at all times.
[quote="Robbb01"]-Run Williamstown-Newport as a full time shuttle[/quote]
Create a third platform at Newport to isolate the service from Werribee/Frankston. Run the Williamstown service every 10 minutes.
[quote="Robbb01"]-Run Alamein-Camberwell as a full time shuttle[quote="Robbb01"]
Run the service every 10 minutes.
[quote="Robbb01"]-Run the Epping/Greensborough services every 15 minutes interpeak.[/quote]
How frequent will Eltham/Hurstbridge get trains?
[quote="Robbb01"]-Run the Lilydale every 10 minutes and into the city look interpeak
-Run the Belgrave direct to Flinders Street every 10 minutes interpeak.
Run them both into the loop and have Blackburn run direct.
[quote="Robbb01"]-Run the Glen Waverly every 10 minutes interpeak into the city [b]look[/b][/quote]
Take Glen Waverley out of the loop and run to Sydenham.
Also have a service every 5 mins North Melbourne Yard-North Melbourne-Flagstaff-Melbourne Central-Parliament-Flinders Street-Southern Cross-North Melbourne-North Melbourne Yard.
