Hi was reading through your blog Im new to Melbourne and have noticed the Train's here are a joke so I agree with your entire blog. How did you find the trains in Perth Im originally from there and worked for a sub contractor for Transperth (the government body that runs them) and Ive never come across a late perth Train and ive seen the running timetable it's a as thick as a bible and thats just for one year's worth of timetable. The beauty of Perth Trains, as we used to work on track is that if the book says it's coming through at 8.15 by christ it's there at 8.15 and usually hurtling along.

God love government owned and OPERATED Trains.

Perth trains are brilliant. I've had two holidays there in the past two years and have found the trains to be on time, fast, quiet, clean and frequent. Melbourne's trains do not come close to Perth's on those five criteria.

Good to see the newspapers on Connex's back again in the last few days.

Meanwhile, the 3.32 train to Hurstbridge was 6 minutes late yesterday with no explanation AND we were lucky enough to get an Hitachi train. What bliss! All this in the supposed 'off-peak holiday period' too!?!

I have noticed the Hitachi's are the worst trains ive ever come across even Perths A Bombardier series are 13 years old and they are meticulous and have just undergone major renovations like new carpets and new seats.

Interesting comments about the Perth trains. I don't use them as I stay in a hotel close to the office. But the people who use them seem pretty happy with them, and of course the WA state government is actually investing in the infrastructure - now there's a novel concept!
