    You can definately tell its a HST at heart, even with the yellow patch in an unusual place.

    Does anyone know how those australian coaches compare to MK3's?

    My XPT journey down from Brizzy was 2 hours late, train lost it's path everywhere it went.

    Cheered me up on it to run into an ex-pat Brit on board, none other than RailCorp's former Chief Operating Officer, Andy Byford - who's since disappeared off to Canada to head Toronto's TTC.

    Those sleeper compartments look cool, seated compartments in the day, and beds at night. Maybe it could be incorperated in next generation sleeper stock, so that it can me more utilised?
