[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.701961)][size=2][font=UICTFontTextStyleBody]I think the main point everyone is missing here (and that's largely due to ill researched crap in the media) is that the drivers don' ...

This is exactly what we do not need. It's the sheep that all file out of the ONE door closest to the exit that delay trains at platforms for up to a minute. News flash, every door gets to the platform ...

They also go to Epping to be washed after fatalities

If we just grade separated all the level crossings on the Dandenong line, I can't see why we even need High Capacity Signalling. The current system copes with a train every 2 minutes, the only reason  ...

"Rubbish. HCS will allow them to run at line speed." ~ railblogger

smeg. I'm not entirely sure what it is people don't understand about this, but it is relatively simple. A V/line train can onl ...

But to do that you'd have to slow all trains to a crawl. I'm sure the Gippsland commuters wouldn't like that.

They crawl now and they'll crawl when HCS is introduced

I genuinely can't believe that this proposed project has managed to relatively fly under the radar, virtually completely unopposed (unlike EW link). Don't alarm bells ring and red flags wave to anyone ...

Closer to 2 hours 24 mins than 2 hours 4 mins, bro.

"The off peak Pakenham to city Vline travel time is 51 minutes, which is 73% of the Metro travel time."

What timetable are you looking at? Paken ...

[quote=Bogong]It's fairly easy (and quite understandable) to complain about the speed of Gippsland services, but far harder to come up with a realistic solution.

So what could be done to improve th ...

Ah, ZH836301, you make me laugh. You keep harping on about how V/line gets a much better service in regards to time traveling vs car, this just makes me LOL.

If V/line travel times are so superior ...

As others have mentioned, there is plenty of provision to run traralgon trains around suburban trains (Melbourne bound, at Dandenong, Westall, Oakleigh and Caulfield though by that point it's virtuall ...

Vinelander. I too am concerned about the new Vline timetable, on the Traralgon line. Journey times are in some cases 10 minutes longer as a result of running more suburban trains. Through the middle o ...

444Desiro, do you or anyone else thinks its absurd that Vline trains will be fitted with this high capacity Signaling capability crap, especially since this will not benefit Vline in any way? Let's ho ...

Oh to be a kid again, when whether a green button on a derelict platform worked or not was the biggest thing you had to worry about. No platform lights indicates no electricity, I doubt it works.

People standing from Dandenong to Flinders Street? Are we really expecting to be able to fill these 9 or whatever car trains to the point of standing when they will be running at ridiculously close in ...

This project is concerning for anyone using the Gippsland train line. Unfortunately, because of all the smoke and mirrors, I think the majority of people won't realise how much we've been dropped in i ...

bevans, I'm sorry, but its always the same weak argument. The Public Transport advocates always try and use it too.

That's a grand generalisation Braddo. SOME people may not want East West link to proceed, just like SOME may not want Metro Rail to proceed, myself included. Just because the people opposed to East We ...

jmcdon, as a general rule if you live near a train line/crossing, it's going to be noisy. Perhaps if you're researching for an article or project, you could advise the wider population of that?

But Gwiwer, can you guarantee that? Because that abomination of a map suggests that trains from Werribee go to Frankston 100% of the time, a big statement from a place as variable as Melbourne's Publi ...
