It looks as though Kilmore east is almost complete, there was a team of workers installing the orange and yellow rubber edge studs.
The Seymour train was its usual 10 minutes late into Southern cross,most of the delay between South Kensington and Southern Cross.
The train to Ballarat what can I say, IT was 12 minutes late leaving due to a delay in getting the second 3 carriage VLocity from the yard, Sat in Bank box loop for twenty minutes waiting for the train from Ballarat. Result 25 minutes late into Ballarat.
Talk about screaming with frustration, I had an appointment in Ballarat I had automaticly assumed the train would be late but did not allow that much time. Lucky the person I was seeing was unsure about the time of the appointment.
They REALLY need to do something about the Ballarat line, I have now been 4 times on the line in the last few years, in two of these trips the train has been more than 20 minutes late due to lack of passing loops (Note 1) The 0914 from Seymour is regularly 10 minutes late but at least its consistent.
Note 1: Over the same period I have been to Bendigo 4 times, I may have been lucky but this train has never been more than a few minutes late.
a most frustrating day,
