This was not raised at the perfect time, the Victoria State Election 2018.
This thread should have been retired on the same day.
Why on earth would you say that this is the perfect time to raise this topic from the dead?
As @jakar says we need to get what we have working first before we even start thinking about re-opening closed lines. Do you actually travel on V/Line @bevans?
