These stations are V/Line stations only served by V/Line trains.
Time will come when commuters from these stations will lose access to V/Line trains, when local suburban trains are Introduced.
Right. And they'll be WELL UNDER ONE HOUR TRAVEL TIME.
This is what you don't get : Anything past Narre Warren is more than one hour.
VLINE is the answer to making these journeys tolerable as a 1+ hour commute is more comparable to a regional commute.
Going from Clayton ect is an entirely different issue. Pakenham is simply not a suburban station it is more much similar to a regional station.
Also consider we get one train every 20-30 minutes that actually goes to Pakenham, not every 5 minutes like in the inner city. The other day there was a Cranbourne train in place of the Pakenham so the wait was 40 minutes, luckily I was able to get the VLINE.
The VLINE table took a lot of stress off the line and gave a lot to commuters. Now it has been taken away and has been replaced with nothing.
In Sunbury it is even worse. I really feel for them as they have a split line like what we used to have where they only get one electric train per hour that actually goes to Sunbury.
Don't try to argue with me with your double speak because i know people in Sunbury who will experience one hour gaps in the timetable as the VLINE has been removed and replaced with NOTHING>
