There in lies my point. Victoria is already building vlocity's and will only need to build a small amount of SG Vlocity's and not in any way will it be able to double the order of what NSW needs. Vline doesn't need a long distance vlocity project because they don't do long distance. As I said before, Swan hill is the longest distance service and if the line was upgraded to allow the vlocity to hit 160km/h then the trip would come down from 4 and a half hours to at least 3 and a half hours.May I suggest that you think a little harder before posting? The VLocity is already on BG and is gauge convertible.An even simpler solution is for TfNSW to work with V/Line on the Long Distance Vlocity project, effectively doubling the order size to get the economies of scale up. But that involves too much common sense and even worse, working with those wretched communist Mexicans.How would it double the order size when the only SG train south of the border is to Albury.
Who knows what we will be ordering but the interior will be of a significantly higher comfort level like that of the prospector then the intercity seats of a vlocity.
