Crowding on V/Line trains common

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

PETER Ryan’s spokesperson had better ride on a train from Southern Cross to Sale before making statements like those in the article.

I have travelled on the train quite a lot, and since we only had three carriages this standing has happened every time I have been on the train.

On one trip there were 14 empty seats in first class and at least 20 people standing.

This was all the way from Richmond.

So the statement that it was only for part of the trip is also incorrect.

I am only talking about the train that leaves Melbourne at 1.30pm (when it is on time).
