There's a few getting around on those lines.

I got a Glen Waverley Comeng from Southern Cross to Richmond one night last week about 4:45pm.

There are X'Traps in revenue service on the Frankston Line today.

There was an article in the Age last month in relation to the delay of more X'Trapolis trains being delivered to the Frankston Line.

I read about this last week but it certainly has been a quiet announcement.

Yet another order of 5 X'Traps to make 10 in total. Good announcement.... depending on where you live!

The travel time from the city to Frankston is about an hour. Baxter is only 7km further down the line.

We've all heard of "butt covering." This is another good example of it.

Unfortunately we live in a world (or country) where people are no longer responsible for their own behaviour.

The answer?  ...

The operators were awarded an 8 year contract - effective Devember 2009.

This would mean they're set until the end of 2017.

Frankston services a lot more commuters than that of Sandringham, Williamstown and Glen Waverley for starters.

Anyone know if they've started their revenue service?

Mr Toastyyy
No, not as yet. Not regular running.

Frankston still has one set used in the mornings

When was it stated that Comengs would not run on these lines anymore? It hasn't been and they still do.

Buses will be replacing trains Caulfield-Moorabbin in a few big blocks, on and off over that time including a 34 day closure in June/ July.

Yes. All Police radios are set to the local "channel" of where they are working and channels comprise of Police divisions made up of several units/Police Stations.

PSO's are on the same channel as t ...

It's often running at different times on all of its morning services because of the temporary change of service patterns on the Frankston Line due to no expresses in the peak.

Yes, it is rare. A hell of a lot of Myki related hearings don't hold up in Court.

If a person presented a reasonable argument such as a faulty machine etc. and this placed doubt in the Magistrates m ...

My understanding is that this offence is dealt with by a Penalty Infringement (being either on the spot for a reduced amount or an "investigation by Public Transport Victoria" that will most likely le ...

The victim?

They are still getting around on those lines.

Less frequently at the moment but they still are. I saw a Glen Waverley one night last week during the evening peak.

This will change soon. They'll b ...

There's been a lot of weekend closures between Moorabbin/Mordialloc - Franksron and heaps of overhead power structures have been put in.

They look nice and new compared to the old brown rusted ones  ...

The Frankston Line X'Trapolis train is currently off the line and undergoing maintenance.

Will be returning on "around the 9th March" according to Metro in the Frankston Times

Aggressive behaviour can be just as much verbal as physically.

I know I wasn't there but CCTV isn't something for all of us to make observations and then determinations of either.

I think we need to move away from the the idea that this spraying was as a result of not having a fare.

Clearly not having a fare was what instigated the while thing, but the result of using spray c ...
