It is my understanding that your government will order new VLocity trains from Bombardier in Dandenong.
While I applaud and welcome the purchases, the seating in existing VLocity rolling stock is incredibly uncomfortable given the long natured duration of the train travel undertaken on the lines they service. This issue would be further exacerbated if the VLocity trains do indeed become a replacement to the current N Class/Type trains/carriages, that service lines such as Bairnsdale.
The seats in question offer extremely poor lumbar support, which is further exacerbated if the seat is fixed with a folding table at the rear.
I kindly ask the government to direct Bombardier to improve the seating for the next batch of rolling stock before they are delivered, to ensure the long term comfort, health, and traveler satisfaction for Victorian travelers.
Seats on the existing N Class carriages offer superior comfort and support, and would serve as a suitable benchmark for improvements.
Thank you for taking the time to understand this concern, and I look forward further developments on this issue. As well as to long and comfortable train travel into the future.
If there are any further queries in relation to any of the above, please don’t hesitate to contact me. @cabidass
