I am encouraged to see this.  But something must be done to improve Line speed.

Starship "Bellyflop" is scheduled for Dec 4-6.  So Saturday morning Australian time at the earliest.

No doubt it'll be spectacular viewing (for the crazy landing or massive explosion/wreckage)....

TSRs seem to be spreading like a virus in Vic atm.  Sea Lake and Manangatang lines are a real disgrace with long stretches of 20-25 km/h restrictions now.  We are talking 4 hrs to do the 80km from Kor ...

Ararat gets an extra weekday service. No more for Maryborough. BG freight needs all the paths it can get!

The Pakenham East Skyrail proposal looks quite good.  Especially the separation of V/line and Metro trains.

A bit more physical exercise for some of the locals.

I used to live in Box Hill South many years ago, and would walk to Mont Albert Station to pay the cheaper Zone 1 fare!  Good exercise...

Boom gate fault at Deer Park.  Residual delays for much of the rest of today.  A single point of failure that has huge cascading effects.

Incidentally, no chance of diverting Geelong trains via Wer ...

More to do with dust and fallout from the mine itself affecting farm produce and human & environmental health.

NIMBYism reigns supreme.  It'll be interesting to see how this pans out.  I've read the EES and it looks quite good.  Given the poor state of our finances, I suspect the mine will get approved:

More and more China is looking like Japan in the 1930s.  They've given up on soft diplomacy and are taking the hard-line.

I should also add they need to extend the Bendigo RRL alignment from Sunshine to Ginifer (i.e. Bypassing Albion Junction).  I still can't understand why they didn't do that in 2014.

If the Govt had any brains they would build a platform at Sunshine for SG trains.
