This question is a bit of topic, but its related to V/Line.
I was wondering if anyone thought about the P Class being named after cities of Victoria or rural areas. Like the N Classes for example. I have a list with all the P's below on some of the regional or suburban towns that they could be named after. Some are current or past passenger stations/freight.
P11: Sydenham? Due to daily services run by the P's.
P12: Sunbury? Due to daily services run by the P's.
P13: Seymour? Because of short regional service.
P14: Bacchus Marsh? Usual V/Line daily services down Bacchus Marsh way.
P15: Melton? Usual V/Line daily services down Bacchus Marsh way.
P16: Korumburra? This P ran many times on the pass and freight on the former commercial line.
P17: Caulfield? Footy specials, passes and freight services.
P18: Leongatha? Due to it ran the last pass in 1993 and ran on many V/Line passes that way.
P19: Gisborne? Due to when P's run the Bendigo pass.
P20: Werribee? Because of the Football specials on the Geelong line.
P21: Maryvale? Because P's run on the freight occasionally and P21 is a freight loco now.
P22: Webb Dock? P22 was the first official train to run on the line in 1986. It also was the last with P12 in 1996.
P23: Lara? Because of the Football specials on the Geelong line.
Little River, Corio, Kyneton, Koo Wee Rup(Closed), Lang Lang(Closed & Sand Freight from Koala Siding - AGM Siding), Spotswood(Suburban & Closed Sand Freight from Koala Siding - AGM Siding), Richmond (Suburban), Craigieburn (Suburban), Dandenong (Suburban), Tallarook, Broadford, Kilmore, North Geelong, Cranbourne*(Suburban, former regional), Wandong, Ballan?
You can comment on this, edit it or come up with any suggestions. I would like to see P's named after towns like the N Classes are.
