A June Dozen

We’ve been eating, drinking, testing and tasting and the fruits of our labours are coming here soon. Watch our video … perhaps you’ve visited these places too? Love to hear from you, John and Pip

Hey good news

Happy to report local Vline station staff have restored my faith and lowered my grumpy level. Friendly helpful service goes a looooong way! Thanks. Only fair to report the good with the bad 🙂

Vline poor again

And so it goes — the 8:53 to Melbourne has been delayed and they now hope it will be more like the 9:20 if we’re lucky … Official reason? “Defective locomotive”

Vline unsatisfactory service

Train customers along the Ballarat line are riding buses again this morning thanks to the Victorian government owned Vline train operator. The scheduled train services are unexpectedly being “replaced” with bus services even though buses were only supposed to run Friday to Sunday — so we Ballan commuters get to start our day grumpy instead of relaxed.

UPDATE: buses continued as “replacements” in the evening. I caught a bus 30 minutes earlier than my normal train but still arrived home at Ballan about 6pm proving that the bus is nowhere near a “replacement” … it’s a poor substitute.
