HAVING travelled from Mildura to Melbourne many times over the past 40 years, I would like to correct a few things.
Sheryl McKenzie writes that pensioners get one free ticket a year, but in fact we receive two free tickets. Plus if you have a seniors card you receive four free tickets a year.
Jess Riseley writes about getting a train station when we already have a very suitable station with very friendly staff who will give you a timetable which tells you there are 22 services to Melbourne each week.
The service leaving at 9.40am via bus to Swan Hill then train at 12.54pm arriving at Southern Cross Station at 5.25pm with a buffet service on board is an excellent service.
Why do we only read in the news about the pre-dawn train service?
