The Dineen Group which has more than 500 buses has created a whole new division dedicated to rail replacement work.           The division, T2B (Train to Bus), has its own livery and is lettered the buses with huge letters on the sides " T2B ".                    

All so with the for Rail Replacement tag  line written on the bus,  "Keeping our passengers moving".                                                                          I had caught  the Train up from Bairnsdale and had been forced off at train at Pakenham due to  excuse Number 42 that was forth coming from the  PTC
"Passenger Re
location Handbook " . Debarking from the train /Vlocity, there I was confronted with a fleet of
20 year old
Volgren  bodied Mercedes buses/ sorry coaches.  I suppose its better than
walking.

Sorta like creeping Americanization on our ABC  viz:

Magistrits  Court,  militairy, and ceramoanies  B/A we speak the Queens English  so debarking is going to the Vet and getting the dogs voice box volume turned down to zero  !!!

One 'alights' from a train, tram, or omnibus.
One disembarks from a ship.
One does not debark from anything!

One can also 'detrain' from a train...or entrain as may be the case.

I think one exits, but it might depend on whether it is by the usual door or via an inflatable slide Razz

Disembark - same as Lockspike has said in relation to a ship.

Another V/Line / PTV special is 'decouple' when they mean 'uncouple'.

I have finally gotten back home after the shock of being ejaculated from my seat on the V/ocity  and being forced off by a mega-phone into a coach,sorry bus. The military term is de-bus left or de-bus right as depending on which side  the ambush is coming from and I can say honestly that the  rail industry has been ambushed by the road lobby, if I was debarking at  the bus so be it because every other passenger formed a pack so in effect we were dogs and were venting our frustration at the smug smiling bus with its show off, pretense,cocky in your face rail passenger B2T Livery , Im here to stay get on board before I drive away in a cloud of diesel smoke.

By that logic, "detrain" should be "untrain".

I am immensely sorry for the confusion that this post has caused . It was not intended to bring and pain and suffering to fellow train passengers who have been force to change modes of transport at the whim of the parent company because they did "market research" and found that 15 % of travelers preferred to get to their destination by a coach. Well it has turned Midnight my friends and the coach that we all knew is now a pumpkin. The one individual I have to blame for this fiasco is nun other than "Bertie the big RED bus who works alongside "Thomas'the Tank Engine".. Bertie is owned by the Government of the Day Roadways. After Thomas became cancelled because it became stuck in a snowdrift at Albury ( Excuse No 78), Bertie came to rescue of Thomas' passengers. He later raced Thomas after claiming he was the faster of the two but lost after having to pick up passengers at two stations . Bertie claimed Thomas didn't stop at a red signal and claimed this was the 3rd time Thomas had had a SPAD this Year .Thomas counter claimed that Bertie wasn't a real bus and that his Mother  was a wagon and his Father was a  light.lorry. Thomas was taking the case to V-Cat. Bertie was furious and began to misfire or was that mis time or was it mis use or is this just another layer of onions . This has kept so many people entertained ,you try getting kicked off your train and flug on to a T2B bus who nose whot crap you can cum up wiv.
