from what i've heard conductors can take down details, and for a fine to be issued the offender has to be taken to court, where the conductor and the company make a claim agains the offender, and beca ...

hello everyone,

this is not yet confirmed - but Saturday the 2nd of Feb is most likely going to be the date this scene will occur for the pacific, with filming advised as day/night 8++ hours

Hello everyone,

My friend just informed me that her 6.24pm service from Marshall to Melb has been replaced by road coaches, is there a problem or event on that line preventing trains running??

that same thing happened to me when I was in the city loop around 2 weeks ago, we were about to leave Flagstaff and that happened.... then the driver got out and told everyone that the train had been  ...

& to add further to that pos

a) there would have been a number of trains along that track since it was PM peakhour

b) the weather was fine, it was not raining so it's absolutely no factor... I can ...

sorry that actually was misleading,

two stories mixed together..

when I said "my theory is they were saving time" it was in relation to the service that did not actually stop at Little River, it ...

I dont know what is going on with drivers, because on Saturday the train i was on the front vlocity overshot the station, and only the rear door made it... just!! pretty pathetic, would have been a go ...

Thats funny!

I actually made a formal telephone complaint last week when my train overshot the platform at Little River, well actually the driver drove straight past then stopped about 700 metres a ...

Is there a reason why they haven't added extra "express" services on the geelong line, they have two in the AM & PM and they are both so full that they continually have people standing up in the train ...

Thats so very weird!

Last week me and friend both mentioned that we missed those trains, and they were really good when you had a group of friends, but quite annoying when some random decided to take ...

when it says the carriage is a compartment type... what exactly does that mean?

it may be illegal to have milk crates, but i know they dont actually care,

we had about 40 milk crates in our store-room which belonged to national foods, and they didnt want them, they said "we do ...

last week i had

"power failure at Lara", so from Lara to Little River we stopped at every signal.

I think most of the time it's signal failure, which is quite frustrating because they spent almost ...

Did they do the inside of them? What do they look like inside now? Are they making the seats grey  Laughing
Whats happening with the sprinters? Are any of them in refurb? And when is their release da ...

I remember reading that the V/Locities would have a automated stop announcement system on the trains, + the display on the train.... why hasn't these been introduced?

This could be a new task for the those BORG cleaners, give the carraige a once over inside and out...  Laughing
i swear i've seen "wash me" written on every carraige vline owns

and almost all the v/ ...

I dont actually think i've seen a clean V/line train for months, the only time i've seen one clean is where someone as obviously written something on the dirty windows, and then they've attempted to g ...

I dont know what rules apply in regards to cargo on v/locity trains, but noticed that the train on platform 8SOUTH @ SC today @ 7.55am was being loaded with blood products, they were being placed in t ...

I agree so much with that point! Communication is the most vital issue! There are only few conductors, and rail staff that actually inform passengers whats going on! Theres nothing worse then spending ...

Posted 04 Aug 2007 15:59 in Victoria by rollo_100

I understand that these things occur from time to time, however they seem quite regular, and it seems everytime they occur V/Line have no back up plans, and what makes it worse they fail to communicat ...

You are so right there!!

It's the icing on the cake after an early start, and late finish to find that you have to hang around for an hour and half... if only they had wireless internet throughout th ...

Anyone knows whats going on at Geelong,

was on the 8.05pm train, which was delayed becuase of severe signal failure at Geelong, at 8.30pm they advised us that the 8.05pm & 9.05pm would combine as o ...

thats the best idea i've heard in ages!!

I spend a minimum of 12 hours of vline trains a week, and this would be a major benefit!! Although I'd say that maybe 5% of the trains i catch are actually  ...

I dont know which carriage it was but the conductor informed us tonight on the 18.28 Warrnambool (dept SC)  a carraige had been removed due to an electrical fault, I believe it was carraige D of the s ...
