How does cost recovery, or even partial cost recovery, imply privatisation?

If the fares required for full cost recovery are higher than airfares, tell me why are we subsidising rail?

I can't convince you that V/Line has an important role to play in linking ALL of the communities of the north west.

The Vinelander


I think most if not all on here do believe V/Line has an important part to play in transport to the north west it is just that V/Line does not equal trains, it equals publicly subsidized transport, and for Mildura the rest of us believe buses to be the best option.

there is a lot of negativity from the rail fan community to the resumption of passenger services to and from mildura why? if the pressure is kept on the return of passenger services then this could only be good for freight services since freight trains would have better track to run on?

Yeah, with a downgrade in speed from 100 to 80 and a waiting time in loops for freight.

The passenger train would be very unlucky to have to cross the 2 freight trains per week or one a day (at the moment) grain trains on the line.

The way V/line does things, the Mildura line would loose all It's crossing loops, making freight train operations very difficult.
