Poor service from V/Line

Clutching failure from the jaws of success - that's the V/Line way.

Already 08.47 and the 08.30 Eaglehawk service is yet to arrive at Southern Cross platform 15

Turns out the train is stuck outside the platform waiting for platform 15 to get freed up. With no suburban trains on the RRL tracks, who can V/Line blame now?

Passengers with bags fight their way through myki gates at Southern Cross Station

Southern Cross is a country station: what idiot thought only two wide gates would suffice for train loads of passengers with large bags?
