Noticed this morning on an up Mernda service that there was no driver changeover taking place at Flinders Street platform 1. The driver simply stopped, reset the PIDS for the down service and departed ...

Huge bustitution coming up over the 31 August-1 September weekend. No Metro trains will run through the City Loop, Southern Cross, North Melbourne or South Yarra. Buses will operate from the city out  ...

Of course with no scope for duplication between the two rebuilt stations... hopeless!

If demand continues to grow particularly after service increases with the Ballarat line upgade, we may see the N-sets stick around for a while longer to cover peak hour runs. Priority would surely be  ...

From the perspective of a train passenger from a non-Skyrail station there is not a huge difference from the day to day use. The key benefit from the months of bustitutions would be that there are les ...

I did wonder how they managed that!

Whilst it is unpopular with commuters, charging a daily fee for commuter parking could prove a useful tactic to differentiate between commuters that have a legitimate need to drive (no alternative) an ...

Not a disruption, but an unusual sighting. The 7.31am up Mooroolbark was a Comeng this morning. Havent seen that one on the Burnley Group in about 6 years!

Whilst incidents like this are out of control of the operator, there are very few options to mitigate such major disruptions. As it happened the incident occurred at Hampton, being the second-to-last  ...

Major meltdown this morning with all Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston and Gippsland trains suspended between Caulfield and South Yarra from first service until approx 8:30am due to a power failure. Bus ...

No trains running this week on the inner sections of the Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston and Sandringham lines. Simultaneously Metro decided to run a reduced summer timetable at the same time on the B ...

Another huge occupation has been announced for the first two weeks of January for Metro Tunnel/HCMT works which will see no trains at all running through South Yarra. Buses to replace trains between F ...

[quote=potatoinmymouth]Letter in the Hun today claiming maximum speed limit on Skyrail is 80km/h and the Pakenham removals will therefore result in increased travel time for Gippsland services.

Hi all, I noticed that X'Trapolis trains are now being used on the Flemington Racecourse Line today for the Melbourne Cup. Is this the first time that they have been cleared to do so?

Great news to remove the Pakenham level crossings and replace the current Pakenham station that is one of the shabbiest looking on the network.

However, a little bit of forward planning would have ...

I somewhat disagree. The Dandenong line is running at a reduced frequency all week due to Cranbourne line trains not running. It would be much easier to cancel a few Frankston trains (e.g. the express ...

Given that it takes almost an hour just to travel Pakenham to Caulfield if you're behind a Metro train, you would never get Moe-Flinders Street in 90 minutes.

Wait, wasn't that what RFR was meant t ...

The level crossing removals were only ever designed to benefit road users. Any benefit for rail passengers would be purely coincidental. The line was congested before the crossing removals, and the li ...

Is there any reason why every time there is a planned bustitution on the Craigieburn line, replacement buses don't stop at Jacana? Instead they provide an additional shuttle bus running Glenroy - Jaca ...

More major planned shutdowns continue over the next few months. Whilst inconvenient for most passengers, it will most likely be a more reliable service than when trains are normally running!

[b]Gee ...

More major planned shutdowns continue over the next few months. I shudder to think of what Metro's bus replacement invoice must look like!

Frankston line:

Until Sunday 17/6: Buses replace t ...
