Yes well, can you beleive this guy? Promised rail revival before the last election and now he come out and says it won't happen. Go and shake hands with good old Terry but make sure you get you five f ...

[quote=Grosso]Those who are saying the station was over priced have no idea. The station cost $1.2 million to the tax payer. We missed this job to one of our competitors (no names) as they had no work ...

[quote=Nightfire]That may be all very well what the transport minister said about planning for the proposed service, but he never said that he was going to deliver the project, only plan and assess th ...

[quote=Nightfire]The current transport minister promised a study ! and he followed through on the promis.

The RRA has a very valid point that the study outcome was a joke and designed to fail, but ...

[quote=bevans]I tend to agree there is momentum how ever I don't think the top dogs in the Vic Labor Party get it. You don't have to look very far back to remember the Kosky mess where the party effec ...

[quote=bevans]Thanks for sharing the video. You have to hand it to the Rail Revival Alliance. They have managed to sucessfully place Talbot back onto the rail map which is good. Let's keep an eye on t ...

I don't think so.
There are new  velocities coming which may mean some sprinters become available

[quote=dean65]That line badly needs more services so people can make day trips arriving in the morning and leaving at night. With what we have now visitors are forced to spend the night and the next t ...

[quote=Bogong]I have a question about the Big Hill tunnel. The report says it isn't wide enough for dual tracks (although it had dual tracks for almost 150 years). So the appendices show a route for a ...

[quote=bevans]I was told over $150m was taken up imn project management fees for Victrack. That project was way way inflated in terms of price and this was coming from people who were working on the ...

[quote=Bogong]Good point Blinkey, but how much did it cost to extend the suburban service by just one station to South Morang? Am I right in remembering it was a mind boggling sum of around $500,000,0 ...

It is interesting that the costs quoted to redo this section of track is nearly twice as high as the accepted industry stabdard for building a completely new new line which includes land acquisition e ...

It is interesting that in the Rail Revival Study, the average number of passengers per trip was quoted at 26.

You're doing a good job Blinkey...clearly sufficient numbers to justify the service.

[quote=Blinkey]My use varies a bit but usually once per week but quite often of a weekend as well.

That regular makes it very hard for me to understand the average of 11 passengers. Not once has ther ...
