Now this is something we should be running between Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo and Sale.  A lovely train with plenty of space, accomodation and excellent on board facilities.

Proof will be in the pudding.

These comments are only coming from the suits involved with the production and supply of the trains. As a general rule a) these people are so far removed from reality it's not funny and b) never travel by train.

Let's see what the actual punters say before we get too excited.

PIMM apparently having the same speed , general performance and 55 less seats than a 3 set v/lo is good !!
Georgeous train does have a pretty paint job,  and I love the steps

Undoubtedly it could, but that won't make these allegedly 'gorgeous beasts' any more or less comfortable.

Despite common terminology for this anecdote...how can the 'proof be in the pudding' Question

The correct terminology...'the proof of the pudding...is in the eating'.
