What about pop culture being brought to Cityrail in the 1990's?

I remember reading controversy in the Railway Digest about the second advertisement showing the superior G sets which back then weren't used much on suburban runs and the football being bounced around inside the carriage (did Cityrail want to encourage this?)

There was an Australian music video of Sheena Easton's Morning Train a few years ago showing a Comeng set "jumping" towards the camera. It was quite good.

Right, besides the train and associated items in this video, everything else is simply too strange

The Three Stooges - there's a small section filmed at Central.  The ticket machines have been disquised by carts if I remember but if you look into the background, you can see a couple of V-Sets on the country platforms.  The movie I'm talking about is the made-for-television version that was filmed around 2000, not the Farrelly Brothers' 2012 version.

I remember being at Central when they filmed the scenes in the main concourse area.

I saw the movie a few years later on Austar.  It wasn't a particluarly good movie.

Cute, the bloke in the middle is a station attendant while the bloke on the right is a train driver. Haven't seen the bloke on the left before though.

Episode 2 of comedy quiz show Tractor Monkeys (aired March 27; available on ABC iview) had a couple of questions about callboys in the 1970s who would go around and wake train crew (were they made redundant by alarm clocks?).
In the video footage from the 70s they mention Goulburn station and talk to a callboy on a platform of a station (at first I thought Goulburn, but there's mention of him waking the driver for the service TO Goulburn, so he probably lived elsewhere).
