Reserved a seat on 7.42am Swan Hill pass out of SC on the 23rd! 

It is a bit odd, use myki but certain services (longer services) need a reservation.   :hc

Won't need reservations for 24th or 27th as not travelling on the longer distance services.

http://www.atlanticlimousine.com.au/

Failed to turn up - despite being pre-paid.  I called their number, some sort of answering service.  Eventually someone rang me back to say the 'system' had broken down.  I said not very convenient as I trundled along in the yellow cab.  Will follow up later.  On the bright side, first time I have been in the Airport Link tunnel.

  yes, a stroke of lucky timing ... 3 trains parallel between FSS and SC.

Interesting to compare the run to and from Bendigo.  The passenger train takes about 2 h 12 min with around 4 intermediate station stops, VLocity 1 h 58 min with 11 intermediate stops.  VLocity travel up to 160 km/h, passenger train is restricted to 110 km/h or thereabouts.

Tram in Bendigo costs $16 for unrestricted 2 days of travel.  More a tourist operation but some people do use it to get around Bendigo as well.  Bus service in Bendigo is quite adequate as well.

The branch line to Cranbourne as seen from train coming into Dandenong (east).

This was the south Gippsland line.  Moves to possibly reopen again past Cranbourne.  Plan to go to Cranbourne tomorrow.

Presently at Melbourne Airport.  Back to Brisbane.  Been a hectic week in Melbourne, but managed to see a bit and still catch up with family etc.

One of the odd things about Melbourne public transport is the late start on Sunday mornings.

For example the first train inbound from Murrumbeena is 7.35am.  This means you have to be careful about bookings to ensure you leave enough time to get to the Airport (or Southern Cross) or face taxi fares.

Murrumbeena around 7.20am this morning. About 12 pax waiting for the first service.



Onboard, time got to Caulfield about half seats occupied.  This was the first service.



I arrived at Melbourne airport at 8.33am.  Not bad considering, train arrived at SC at 8.01am, walked to Sky Bus and off.

Arrived safely back in Brisbane.

Airtrain wait was 25 minutes, Eagle Junction 28 minutes.  The Ippy runs 2 minutes ahead of the Airtrain service.  Occasionally you can fluke the connection at Eagle Junction if the Ippy is a few minutes late, not today.  One wonders ...

Arrived safely back in Brisbane.

Airtrain wait was 25 minutes, Eagle Junction 28 minutes.  The Ippy runs 2 minutes ahead of the Airtrain service.  Occasionally you can fluke the connection at Eagle Junction if the Ippy is a few minutes late, not today.  One wonders ...

True Bob - been there many times myself ... lots of waiting .....never been able to fluke an Ippy train at Eagle Junction... maybe one day....
