Thanks for the perseverance, Ozbob.   :clp:

The truth will always out in the end.  Good and proper public administration requires that this material be made public and scrutinised for lessons to be learned.  Hopefully the LNP/ALP won't use this disclosure to continue the recriminations and tit for tat.  That would be most unhelpful.  We are talking about the (in)appropriate spending of $4.4b.  I wonder where the Auditor-General sits now and whether he feels uncomfortable about his decision not to investigate.  He should feel uncomfortable.  He should be made to feel uncomfortable.

I wish NGR735 didnít have the new wraps on the outside :P

(Placement of the disability seating in on the outside of the train windows placed in the middle blocking your view of everything outside. Gets even better when the writing is for the outside. Inside itís just a black square in the middle of the window).

Gotta spend money on something besides some new fabric on the seats near the doors :P

The signs are just the same drawings of disabled, pregnant women, adults carrying kids and elderly passengers that can already be found inside trains but just in a larger font. Seems very very redundant.

Bob, didnít get any photos. Did a quick search and found this photo. You can see the large stickers on the outside windows saying where the priority seating is. Inside itís a black square in the middle of the window.

Edit: smaller signs are also placed on the windows planes inside the carriages next to the doors. Sat down quickly and depending how high you are they do impede your view around the carriage and trying to look out from the door windows.
