This is a copy of the original diagram of the X'trapolis bogie as in the ALSTOM submitted tender to Connex (Hillside at the time), we can only assume that either Connex specced them out, or they wer ...

Melbournes Trains at the moment cant be cleaned outside (I might be wrong) due to Water Restrictions. Examples, X'Traps look very colourful in a way as the cant fully was all the smeg off, they just h ...

When I think of 'real world' transport systems, I am always drawn to my experience of the Paris Metro.  With a 2.5 min service on some lines, timetables become irrelevant, as does the usefulness of pr ...

Driving over those tracks they are a total mess...

According to a track walker, recently, they are suposedly going to be working on the area later this month.

They must be getting worse, too, as ...

There is information on the Vline site now

I caught a DOWN Broadie the other night (at least that is what the platform indicator said, but fortunately I was sufficiently awake to smell a rat when we arrived at North Melbourne in platform 4.

What other choice would they have?

National bus/ventura are already really busy at that time. Can't go out from their own business to offer replacement buses.

Grendas - Dandenong. Same reasons as ve ...

Plan to power rail line

THE State Government is looking at a plan to electrify the train line to Sunbury that would provide a regular 20-minute service.

If electrified ...

What on earth is an ERD driver? Wasn't there just a whole spiel up there about abbreviations and three letter acronyms? SCX? What *are* you talking about?

I was under the impression he purposely pu ...

Can I suggest if people want to use station codes to save space, they do what people do in reports etc; for example, write Craigieburn (CGB) then use the 3 letter code the rest of the way through

Skybus works perfectly well. Every city in Australia which has constructed an airport train link has found it to be poorly patronised.

Let us not forget that the skybus only takes 20 minutes, any t ...

Melbourne train system is slow which I agree. 10 new trains only? Not enough, why not get a whole new fleet like Sydney.

2013 they are supposed to be replacing the older fleet Comeng and Hitachi...

I don't understand why it doesn't have 2 electrified tracks at the station?  Confused
The other thing I didn't get, was why an unqualified driver for that section is doing at Broady!?  Confused Wouldn't they  ...

The new scheme looks incomplete. It needs something adding to it.

Like... painted doors Wink To me... the train looks incomplete with the doors white. Otherwise it looks doable.... in a McDonalds/Hun ...

To quote the North East Controller (centrol) he told me the other night "It would be 10 times better if the signaller at Craigieburn would stop bringing Empty cars out infront of all the north eas ...

I still maintain that if we had public floggings at the MCG and charged admission we could thereby fund all future expansions of the system! Mr. Green
You know Ned, when you are Emperor I still wan ...

Anyway, with the new display system i still think they don't have enough screens.

For each inter-platform walkway for the centre subway they need one of the summary boards on top of it, so you kno ...

This dosnt surpprise me at all and it happend in every state

all these people get is a slap on the wrist it just isnt enough

maybe they should all be put in a train and then other people can thow ro ...

So all you non-believers get out there and see the new livery for yourself.

stinky

10M-1908T-21M - 49M-1987T-196M ran empty along the down local to Caulfield this morning. It would have departed FSS around 8:30.

It was a training train. Drove backwards and forwards Moorabbin  ...

I believe this is the final livery..there were 2 others in the shop and one of them was having the vline stencil removed

Not to mention the amount of blokes shoving off to VLINE PAC NAT QR etc. Train them up and off they go.

I thought the next couple of classes at Connex are drivers coming from Pac Nat, not the other ...

Here is food for thought. Technically anytime a car crosses a level drossing it is actually trespassing on railway land. The railways own that section of road that crosses the track...
