News article: Coaches replace Bairnsdale trains

Due to Victoria’s Big Build works, coaches replace Bairnsdale trains from Monday 22 November to Thursday 2 December

  8502 Chief Train Controller

It sometimes feels the Gippsland line is never open to trains being a lot of shutdowns to that line over the last few years.  

If you consider the late October work then almost a month of disruptions yet again.

To make an omelette you have to break eggs.

Inevitably the works will cease and trains will be operating regularly once again.

".... trains will be operating regularly once again". That is an oxymoron as far as V/line is concerned.

I wish we could get over this "coach" nonsense. By definition, the damn thing is a bus. Coaches have four wheels and are hauled by horses.

Don't they still have those coaches as described so eloquently by Valvegear in Victoria?

Wasting your time I'm afraid Valvegear.Sad

Are we really so badly educated that we don't know the difference between a bus and a coach? Rhetorical question, of course.

Sadly, it seems mandatory to go out of our way to use incorrect terminology these days.
  • Passengers travel on trains, customers buy things in shops and guests are those who visit for lunch on Sunday.
  • Freight is carried in wagons - not carriages.
  • Passengers are carried in carriages - not wagons.
  • Locomotives haul trains - they are not trains alone (unless you get run-over by one!).
  • Trains terminate 'short' (which is a measure of distance) not 'early' which is a measure of time. Despite terminating short they are probably late anyway.
  • Those timber, concrete or steel things that hold the rail track gauge are sleepers not ties.

Preach! I think the decision to use 'customers' over commuters/passangers is the brainchild of some useless MBA hire.

For which he/she probably received $100,000.
Despite being the resident RP acronymical idiot even I know what MBA stands for.
It is 'Master of Bugger All'.

MBA is a fascinating thing. For years, I worked for a (very successful) businessman who once said to me that anybody looking for a job who came in and said he had MBA after his name, would be very smartly invited to do a 180 degree turn and keep walking.
