Yarram? The only way any V/Line rollingstock is ever getting back to Yarram is on the back of a low-loader. You can bet your life on that one.

Leongatha and Wonthaggi's chances aren't much better.  ...

I don't expect to see any old rollingstock pulled into service for "Victoria 2026".

Whatever demand can't be met with the existing V/Line fleet of the day will most likely be supplemented by road  ...

How will Vline utilise all 25 Ns on BG?

Collingwood are averaging 57,000 to its games at the MCG this year. Give the fans an exciting brand of footy and a belief that they can win every week and they will turn up, regardless of what some on ...

Most of the North East line has been fixed up to a good standard from what I have heard (happy to be corrected by those that would know better).

T387 is working alongside SRHC's T357 + S303 on an SSR railtrain.

First time T387 has seen action for some time, good for it to get the chance to blow the cobwebs out.

YPR?

707 Ops have quite the diesel loco fleet building up.

PPM?

A train running express Footscray - Sunshine - Airport is not an increase in trains to the Western suburbs.

Equally, a train to the Airport stopping at every available platform between the city and t ...

According to this article from Daniel Bowen: https://www.danielbowen.com/2020/03/02/top-tram-routes/

Does that simultaneously mean the end of the loco hauled trains on the Albury pass, or is the odd one going to continue to pop up for a while yet?

I agree. With transport, 24hour time is the international standard. This is at least something V/Line typically get right and Metro & PTV should follow on.

Some of these stories reminds me of one of my own:

The current shut-down began on Saturday 2nd of July and ends this Thursday (the 14th)

It is a bit of a joke to be honest. Shut-down a busy commuter rail corridor for the best part of 2 weeks for "m ...

What is the maximum permitted length of trains on the Mildura line now?

Have they been getting longer?
