With the "fast" trains now running on three of the four upgraded lines, it's time for some pics.
The V'locity units now run to Ballarat, Geelong and Bendigo. They're limited to 130kph, until the the new timetable comes in later this year, when they'll be cranked up to 160kph.

The Gippsland line shuts down in 2 weeks for four months to allow for final upgrade works.

At Spencer Street:


At Castlemaine:

If these things hum along like their cousins - the trains they were modelled on: Class 170/171 'Turbostar' - then everything shall be sweet.

It's a very nice, and smooth, ride between Edinburgh and Glasgow on these things.
