Melbourne suburban passenger information displays

Next train displays at Melbourne suburban railway stations.

Three out of four of the next trains at Sunshine are V/Line services

With the flood of new services following the opening of Regional Rail Link, I'm not sure how you can call Sunshine a 'suburban' station
