You can find pages and pages of posts about trains here: if that isn’t enough, there is plenty more beyond this site!
With the opening of the new Waurn Ponds railway station back in October 2014, V/Line had to modify their Geelong line timetable so that trains could actually serve the new station. It is on this new timetable that I found an oddity – two early morning trains bound for Waurn Ponds that stop at every station except for Marshall. So what is the reason for this move?
Over the weekend Melbourne newspaper the Herald Sun ran a piece about an upcoming trial of tram priority by VicRoads, Public Transport Victoria and Yarra Trams. So what to make of it – an important move to make Melbourne’s tram service faster, or just another report to gather dust on the shelf?
Last week Melbourne’s railway network almost came to a grinding halt when industrial action threatened to pull dozens of trains of service. So how did Metro Trains Melbourne find themselves in that situation?
You don’t need to wait for a billions of dollars to drop from the sky to improve Melbourne’s public transport – making small tweaks to existing services and infrastructure can often make things a little better, and for far less money. Unfortunately for us, Public Transport Victoria seems to have misread the memo – as I found the other day.
