When I am going on a trip on an Oscar here in Sydney. I make sure to take with me a cushion to sit on. It makes a huge difference to comfort in uncomfortable seats.

At least you got a reply. I have sent 3 letters in the past 3 months

lol. Try this when speaking to the other half: Ask a question. Ask another question. And then ask another question, without waiting for a reply. And see if that puts you in their favour..... lol

I'd say you got a little bit excited with your letters.

For the record, I've sent a plethora of letters to pollies. And if I remember correctly, I've received a response in every instance. It mainly revolves around how you phrase your concern. And whether you go on the attack, or approach the concern objectively. Sometimes it has taken many months, but I still get a reply.

I scratch my head with this frequently, but I'm surprised that so few seem to understand these elementary concepts... lol

Maybe reflect on the main issue of your concern, and then call their office and leave a message for contact back with regards to 'earlier correspondence' and your specific concern.

Let us know how you go.

I finally got my reply yesterday. A page and a bit of pure spin once again.

My main beefs were with the 05:50 Marshall-SCS loco hauled being very hit and miss and the lack of action on the 2016 announced $257m additional V/Locities including "stabling & maintenance facilities" at Waurn Ponds.

The 05:50 service issue was addressed by quoting V/Line performance figures showing that the service was running at 98% of the time but only at 84% punctuality (these figures are doctored in some way, shape or form as it's my regular service!) and then stating the amount that was budgeted in the 2017 for "aging rolling stock".

The lack of action on the "stabling & maintenance facilities" at Waurn Ponds was addressed by quoting how much the current Government have invested already in V/Locoties & stabling & maintenance facilities and what the current budget included. Not one mention of Waurn Ponds.

Sorry to get off topic but thought it was worth the response.

Maybe you should respond with "That's not what I asked."?

Don't expect a reply.

As far as the author of your reply is concerned your letters are now on file...UNLESS you write about some aspect of your service that you didn't write about in the previous letters.

Believe me I Know...
