Too many questions !

Has the RRA done any kind of survey about how many would use the proposed service, including from intermediate stations?

Are they aiming at luxury tourist passengers, or loc ...

At the risk of being a bit obvious, I will Wend my way towards that big lake in Ballarat - and nearby station.

"All stations Preston, this is E-Class six-zero-zero-niner, two-zero miles north, inbound."

Maryvale?  (APM siding)

Some of those conduits appear to be years old, decrepit, in some cases broken, with exposed cables and general appearance of neglect.  Are the ones like that still functional?

In the case of some m ...

Pinder was CEO of V/Line.  Could someone please explain the connection between V/Line and that "Skyrail boondoggle"?

Not Yarra Glen?  (Looks nervously over shoulder)

(Known locally as the Mob Siding......)

Lah ?  (As distinct from La La, of course).  Worth a LOL ( Lah..... out loud )
