Its always a bit laughable hearing Bendigo and Balarat people complain about being stuck behind sparks or local services.As you travel around on your motorised two wheeled conveyance...perhaps a Vespa, observing the rail network from a distance...it might be an advantage to leave the bike at home and actually travel on the Ballarat line as I do...both during weekdays and on weekends.Nothing wrong with Vespas Mike although as a staunch Lambretta man myself I do consider them a little mundane.
What are you trying to imply by suggesting that ZH rides a scooter? Such prejudice. 60 million Italians can't be wrong you know.......
It’s time to sort out this dissension in the ranks and come to an gentleman's agreement
but seriously this post is up to 19 pages
and I’m betting it will make 50pages by the time the upgrades are finished . (I’m sorry that’s a miss print)
I encourage free speech and robust debate and would like to see the vesper issue settled by race similar to the race from London to Edinborough that was on TV program “Top Gear” between a car, a motor bike and steam loco Tornado
( Look up U tube great story).
A race from Southern X to Melton between a Vesper, a Gogo mobile and a Velocity rail car. No further because the Gogo mobile would run out of brake’s coming down Anthony’s Cutting.
Im not a betting man ,but it would be a close race
The Gippsland line has 60km of congestion behind sparks and then stattions only a few km apart. The most rediculous average speed results.
Always said, given a free run at the emergency lane on the Monash, my Fergie tractor is an even odds bet beating a Velocity to Pakenham.
