Melbourne April 2017
« on: January 18, 2017, 09:58:38 AM »
Visiting Melbourne over Easter. 

Hope there are not too many track closures but it will be good to escape the poor SEQ frequency and get some 10 minute train fix!

Sky Rail (Caulfield <> Dandenong) works will have commenced and there should be some stuff up in the air by then.  Will be interesting to see that. 

Still have plenty of cash on my myki ...

Fleeing Queensland is a popular pastime at the moment.

I'm going to NZ next week for 17 days.  When they cancel services (one of which I intended to catch), they at least have a decent excuse.

Lots happening around Murrumbeena where I stay when in Melbourne.

Also significant construction further out along the line now too.

Looking forward to #FleeQLD  :P

Easter works blitz for April school holidays

Added: 21 March 2017

Over the Easter holiday period in April, there will be a number of service changes to allow vital works to be completed on the public transport network.

Work on major transport projects, including removing dangerous level crossings, preparing the Dandenong line for High Capacity Trains, and track and signalling works will be ramped up during this quieter period.

These works will also improve the safety and reliability of the existing rail and road network.

Despite this intensive program of works, public transport will help millions of people enjoy the holiday period, including those attending Run for the Kids and the start of the AFL season.

Passengers are encouraged to plan their journey ahead of time and allow additional travel time.

Trains, trams and buses will operate to a combination of Saturday, Sunday and public holiday timetables over the Easter period.

Please visit the Live Travel Updates page for further information.

For something different this trip, I booked my return tickets for Goodna to Brisbane Airport online via the Airtrain website.

With the discount works out marginally cheaper than using go card.  Seamless process.

Stony Point railway line > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stony_Point_railway_line

Quote
The Stony Point line was opened from Frankston to Baxter station in 1888, and Hastings, Bittern and Stony Point in 1889. Branches were opened from Baxter to Mornington in 1889, and from Bittern to Red Hill in 1921. The 300-metre (330 yd) long branch from Long Island Junction to Long Island was opened on 29 April 1969 to serve the adjacent steel mill.[3]

The Red Hill line was closed in 1953. The Mornington line remained until 1981, but the line south of Moorooduc is now operated by the Mornington Railway as a tourist railway. Passenger services on the entire line were withdrawn on 10 June 1981,[4] and the line from Long Island Junction to Stony Point closed from 22 June 1981, until 26 September 1984 when passenger services were reintroduced.[5] For the reopening DRC railcars DRC40 and DRC 41 used, with two MTH carriages in between them making up a 4 car train. The DRC railcars were frequently used, either in multiple or with MTH trailer cars. Frequent breakdowns saw diesel locomotives called in to haul the consist instead.[5]

In December 1989 to celebrate the centenary of the opening of the line, DERM 58RM was used to provide shuttles.[6] On that day the DRC railcar had failed, and a third series T class was used with two MTH carriages to provide the regular service.

In November 1987 locomotives used on the service included P15, T403, T355, P12 and P18. The locomotives were changed on a daily basis due to excessive wear of brake blocks from the constant stopping and setting back movements.[7] Despite their failures the DRC railcars remained the preferred rolling stock until at least 1990.[8]

In August 1994 a T class with two MTH carriages were used,[9] but by November 1995 weekday services were being operated by a P class with 2 MTH carriages, with an A class used on weekends with an extra MTH car.[10] On another occasion in November 1995 a X class diesel in V/Line Freight livery was used with three MTH carriages,[11] but these kinds of workings disappeared after V/Line was separated into passenger and freight divisions.

By the 2000s the service had settled down, with the A class locomotive and a single MTH carriage sent between Frankston and Spencer Street on a regular basis for refuelling and maintenance. Two MTH carriages would be used on the train, a third stabled at Frankston, and the fourth would be at Spencer Street or the Newport Workshops undergoing repairs. An A class locomotive and two car MTH consist could carry 126 passengers, weighed 199 tonnes and was 56.9 metres long; but with an extra car a total of 238 passengers could be carried, which weighed 238 tonnes and was 76.1 metres long.[12] At some point the ownership of the MTH carriages was transferred from country operator V/Line to suburban operator M>Train, and later Connex Melbourne.[13] On a limited number of occasions V/Line underwent locomotive shortages, with leased A classes from Freight Australia and later Pacific National appearing on the train in their green and yellow livery.[14]

In late 2007 the safeworking on the line was altered, with the Electric Staff and Train Staff and Ticket sections replaced by Automatic and Track Control signalling controlled remotely from Frankston Signal Box.[15]

On 27 April 2008 diesel railcars were again introduced on the line,[1] this time with the Sprinter units originally purchased by V/Line in 1993.[16] Two units usually operate the service, with a single unit returning to Southern Cross for servicing on a regular basis, with another sent in the opposite direction to replace it. The units are selected from the normal V/Line fleet, and are not dedicated to the run. No ticketing equipment is fitted, but new locks were fitted to the toilet doors to prevent their use when being used by Metro Trains Melbourne.

On 1 April 2015, passenger services were suspended indefinitely following a series of safety breaches where boom gates failed to drop for an approaching train.[17] After three months of remedial works, a full passenger service returned to the line on 30 June 2015.[18]

#FleeQLD for Easter

Good Morning,

Off to Melbourne today.  And I am looking forward to being able to use a proper connected public transport network with good frequency.  Trains and trams are running normal timetables essentially in Melbourne over Easter.  No service cuts as in the case with SEQ.

A failed rail operator in SEQ that has not only reduced service frequency to the worst in the Nation, but has also treated public transport users with contempt by moving from the clock face times and rendering the bus/rail connections largely ineffective and subject to long waits for users.  This compounds with the low frequency on the rail system.  TransLink has failed the community by standing aside and allowing this mess to occur.

Melbourne service notices

Yarra trams: http://www.yarratrams.com.au/using-trams/service-changes/service-changes/2017/easter-public-holidays-friday-14-monday-17-april/

VLine trains: https://www.vline.com.au/News-Alerts/News-Articles/Easter-services-2017

Metro trains: http://www.metrotrains.com.au/easter-travel-period-2017/

The only  public transport jurisdiction that is unable to properly service its community is SEQ.

My advice is to allow 2 hours longer on public transport journeys, 4 hours if heading to or from the Sunshine Coast.

Yes, it has come to this sadly.

Happy Easter!

Best wishes
Robert

I remember when I was in Melbourne earlier this year being struck by the number of passengers using the train all day, every day over there. It was miles ahead of Brisbane.

11:30pm on a Sunday night there were still about 10-20 pax per carriage, even on the quieter lines. QR can barely get 1 or 2 pax per carriage on the Ipswich line at that time... Likewise daytime & weekend patronage is significantly higher.
Is it really that hard to run frequent, reliable public transport?
