With Christmas approaching our public transport system still has to keep up with demand of a different kind. The Christmas shopper.

D2.5011 heads Eastbound with a 96 to East Brunswick.

C2.5011 turns left into Spencer Street with a 96a shortworking to Port Junction.


Following not long behind with a full route 96 to St Kilda is C2.5103 at Port Junction.


Turning into and out of Clarendon Street is D2.5014 with a 96 and C.3015 with a Port Melbourne bound 109.


Powering out of the Casino/MECC stop is E.6009 bound for East Brunswick.

The old meeting the new SW6.866 is a 73 year old veteran of the network heading out to begin City Circle duties. In front is the not even a year old E.6009 at the Batman Park stop. This stop is set to change in the not too distant future with it being upgraded to a platform stop.


Going clockwise around the city is W7.1020

Pulling up to the Spencer St Stop is B2.2019 with a 75 to Etihad Stadium

Crossing Flinders St is Z3.196 with a route 1 to South Melbourne Beach


Following behind is D1.3524 showing off the PTV livery.


Next Cycle of lights has D1.3537 with a 16 to Kew.



The heritage listed clocks at Flinders St Station. These days they're in a bit of a timewarp with things like Altona Line(Now a sub branch of Werribee Line trains), St Albans(Extended to Watergardens then Sunbury) Line and Broadmeadows Line(Extended to Cragieburn). In the old days a member of staff would of had to of changed the clocks by hand as each train departed.

Back on Swanston St is D1.3513


One of the trains that don't get much airtime but a very important part of V/Lines fleet is the H type cars. These days they have been combined to make larger sets to cater for the commuter market. In this case the 1520 Marshall service is made up of a SH and an LH set. The only difference between the two is the length of the car used. Here the train is pictured at Geelong station about to depart.
