[quote=The]Thanks for the reply. I utilise the V/Line website for my Mildura sojourns and the first class option isn't difficult. Though I often opt for the mail option for my paper ticket OR one can ...

I am travelling on the bus-train-bus combo from Melbourne to Horsham at the moment.

The V/Locity service to Ararat is fast and comfortable but the 4pm down out of Ballarat barely had a busload on it. ...

I'm getting the Overland from Horsham to Melbourne on Friday, bypassing bustitution on the Ballarat line. It was a serious battle to book online but I eventually beat the not very user friendly websit ...

The N sets are life expired cars no longer fit for purpose. Apart from 1st class they are uncomfortable, overheated in winter - a sauna in Summer. The only thing missed in the V/Locity is the snack ba ...

[quote=don_dunstan][quote][/quote]As RTT_Rules said it will probably end up being more than a hundred direct jobs - it's an incredibly large undertaking.

Wasn't it the L in the Federal LNP that did the Corangamite pork-barrelling? It's time the Nationals put the N in LNP. Seems to be an internal matter.

Hopefully the decisionmaking process will be equitably spread across the RFR corridors. It stinks that places with plenty of marginal seats get the riches whilst locations in safe seats are end of the ...

Hopefully the ARHS will consider the aesthetics of the site and construct the shelter in the form of traditional VR shedding - high pitch roof with galvanized iron cladding will look great. Colourbond ...

[quote=don_dunstan]The cynic in me says the LNP won't do anything about 'jobz 'n growf' in Queensland anyway.

Unemployment, particularly youth unemployment, is really pretty high in regional QLD - ...

I don't think we will be seeing VicRoads engineers designing timetables. What is important is that VicRoads will no longer be acting as the State's defacto transport planning agency and there will be  ...

Craig Ingram MP (former independent East Gippsland MP) used to be regularly seen on the Bairnsdale train after it was returned following its politically disastrous axing.

[quote=freightgate]Why is it the state is full of promises and light on delivery especially when it comes to rail ?

There was a report on 9 News earlier this week which stated the LNP was committing $200,000 for a feasibility study to look at the South Gippsland rail line.

It would be interesting to reflect on what would have happened to the regional rail network if Jeff Kennett had been reelected in 1999. No Regional Fast Rail on his side, just more of the same. The pa ...
