Pakenham in the the morning peak would be problematic to fit in terminating V/Line services, however during the off peak there shouldn't be any issues. Too hard basket/Metro not playing nice I guess!

Pointless introducing a timetable that can't be met whilst so much of the fleet is out of service.

3 VL 59 in testing,  VL 00 back to factory to have trailer inserted (1300) and will emerge as 3 VL 00.


Thanks for the update SN7, interesting as always!

It's definitely legit; remember it happening.

I'm sure the Office of the Chief Investigator of Transport and Marine Safety Investigations wouldn't waste their time investigating a 'fake' incident!


[quote=Greensleeves]There's a couple stored at Murtoa in V/Line livery (No.s 893-R, 900-R and 931-E), but the VLEY's done up for Sadliers were ex-VLRX vans which were all in Freight Australia green. S ...

Tea cup came along in 1981; V/Line was launched in July 1983.

Never heard to it referred to as the bull ring; anyway, yes, electric trains still use it, mostly empty or exchange moves.

There's at least one tabled empty movement running daily.

I think this service will remain bussed to Traralgon, then from 8403 (0704 Southern Cross - Sale) onwards all Bairnsdale services will commence/terminate at Sale.

Cars BTN254, BCZ257 and BZN258 remain in red and blue; all are still at Newport.

BTN254 & BZN258 were part of VN18 (N18) when withdrawn, N18 being the last red N set. Wouldn't be surprised  ...

Posted 19 Oct 2013 20:04 in Victoria by vlinecars

Apologies; an extra 2 BZN cars are now back in service; BZN256 and BZN272, making it 5 in total.

Posted 19 Oct 2013 19:55 in Victoria by vlinecars

Three Z cars have returned to service so far, BZN252, BZN266 and BZN267.

Despite only three Z cars back in service, there's only four 3 car N sets are running around now, N11, N14 and N17 (+N18 in  ...

Hi all,

Yesterday, Sunday 15th September, the last ever full V/Line Passenger MkII red and blue liveried train was run, consisting of N465+N18 (ACN54-BRN52-BN1).

It ran 8403 (0804 Southern Cross ...

I thought the points had been spiked?

The points have been removed

Posted 26 Aug 2013 11:26 in Victoria by vlinecars

No; see for more information.

The last train to use it was on the 19th of October 2005, hauled by N470 (photos are on Vicsig)
