Rumour has it that our beloved whiz kids at VLP I would have stuck with your first description Kuldalal, the one with the shiny red nose
One just gets so fed up with VLP , thought Clowns was perhaps a bit rough though . But consider all these VLP fiascos which were totally avoidable if VLP had learnt from past experience :
- 3 years to source new bogie frames for 22 Z cars - unbelievable BLUE HILLS saga,. and still 5 - 6 cars to be done - VLP usual URGENCY of all the speed of a crippled snail . one wouldnt think they were short of stock ,. If they attached more urgency to getting all 22 cars back in service, they might save on bus hire .
- V/Locity wheelwear issue . Same issue years ago with track on viaduct between Spencer St & Flinders St and Hitachi trains, incompatibility of rail hardness between wheels and rails on tighly curved track, lack of flange lubrication etc.
- Lx activation and V/locity DMU , same issues years ago with Sprinters on Geelong & Bendigo lines.
In the latest issue of the Echuca Line suspension where is our new VLP CEO ? he should be speaking on the issue NOT the Spin Doctors .
The latest issue of V/line Horizon contains a serious error of quoted fact, and spelling errors . The CEO who puts out a Newsletter under his name who does not read it and correct spelling errors, and who relies on spin doctors for accuracy of fact will eventually live to regret it . (Vale former CEO circa 01/2016 !!!)
Error of fact is crowing about Murray Basin standardization claiming Ouyen - Murrayville is already standard gauge, and secondly on issue of WOLO restrictions claiming VLP has not cancelled any freight trains because of the WOLOS - sort of Trump like FAKE News - as VLP does not run any freight trains of course . Would be interesting to know from the actual Freight Operators if they have had to amex any trains because of VLP Nanny State no freight trains over XX degrees heat policy ? on Freight lines.
