Heard from one of the bus drivers who were on replacement (so take it with a grain of salt) that apparently the N class had an issues with this bearings.. as in it lost them everywhere.

The existing tunnel has been reused to put utilities through the station. It's a lot more narrower than it was. Also where the tunnel enters the station is now used as the staff area. You'd have to re ...

It's been a constant issue with the staff members. Whenever people would come out to test the air quality V/Line would often move trains out.

[quote=Simbera]Sounds to me like the footbridge will be opening, but the station proper will still be a while away. Demolition of the old station will start but presumably won't finish until the new s ...

Actually a GPS I had with me. 121km/h it said.

Only reason I checked is because I could tell the train was going really fast so I turned on my gps

I've been told they lost "everything" around North Melbourne. Delays over over 60 minutes.

This is just hearsay so please don't take it as gospel but I've heard there are some issues with the Government and their funding for rail projects. Mainly they decide to cut the funding during upgrad ...

Please note "worked". Past tense. And I have seen the KPI boards too.
Unlike you, I work - present tense - and I understand the KPI boards rather than just observe the ...

Metro AO's have quotas they have to meet.

Would you be able to present any evidence to support this assertion?

Can anyone comment on whether AO's are issued with a quota?

I just realised something everyone!When I was using Metcard last night to exit Southern Cross station, I went to the Myki only barriers and tried to exit. But the screen said "missing touch on" and ba ...

Watergardens is a ridiculous name. I wonder how much the shopping-centre paid for that...Agree. It's an area without much water or gardens.Kind of like Bayswater - One of the furthest suburbs in metro ...

Woohoo! All concourse seats and tables have disappeared as well. Passengers in the North West, Metro's middle finger is erect especially for you.Spring racing carnival. They do this every year..

There are plenty of seats on the concourse. Better to wait there than clutter the platforms.What an idiotic remark, showing how out of touch you are with reality.You expect hordes of people to come  ...

Is it just me or are 4/5 narrower than most platforms? 6/7 feel a lot wider.Yes I was thinking "Hang on - aren't they (Sunbury/Sydenham) the same line?"Yes, but a two-tier service will operate during  ...

Just for the historical record - all (every last one of them) seats for passengers on platforms 4/5 at Flinders Street have been removed. There is now nowhere for the elderly, infirm etc to sit on the ...

How would they put a train station at Chadstone, considering it's smack bang between Holmesglen and Hughesdale? They'd be better off extending the Alamein line over the original Outer Circle route tha ...

Stay on the bloody looper and you'll get to FSS anyway, so what, ten minutes later? Who cares?Actually I do care. I don't like have to spend more time on a train that I need to. The old time table wor ...

Without a description it's hard to understand what this photo means, especially considering the Metro website says "good service".It's for when they close the station to rebuild it. Evidently someone  ...

What is the plan for Tottenham long term?Obviously the RRL will cut through it at some point, but is the BG yard required any more?Would it be better served being redeveloped as a stabling yard for ei ...

Excuse my ignorance here but I didn't realise there was any cross overs to get a train from Tottenham Yard to the Sydenham lines? So there would be no way that Footscray would actually be a stop. The ...

What myki should deliver is that as patronage rises, we won't need more than one staffed ticket window at suburban stations. Remember, patronage more than doubled under Metcard and yet we didn't need  ...

As to foreign accent, essentially, I call Godwins' on you, suitably modified for this context. Much like saying "I wanna talk to an Australian call centre" when you're bitching about your bank or phon ...

Almost everyone calls it Melbourne Central, or simply "the Central" station. Apparently there were calls a few years back to change its name to either: State Library or LaTrobe. Can anyone confirm  ...
