Well, it's a play on V/Line. Never actually checked to see whether anything official includes the slash to make it V/Locity, but it seems it's generally spelt simply as VLocity.

And the fact I can tell you that surely says something.
Despite knowing it's in the same league as the Sky Tower, the height only really hit home when I was on the observation deck and I saw a light plane fly by below floor level.

I'll try to dig up some more of those photos tomorrow. Tall buildings or planes, whatever gives me a chance to take photos of stuff from above.

Comengs stabled at Brighton Beach, on the Sandringham line.

I firmly believe I'm going to struggle to ever frame a picture better than this. But I'll keep trying.

And here's the trains in my previous photo from the other end of the station. Left is an Alstom-refurbished Comeng, right is an EDI-refurbished Comeng. I prefer the EDIs.

After my first photographic expedition through Royal Park, I posted a close-up photo of the bit in the centre here. This is a more zoomed out one showing it in a bit of context.

There ya go, Brighton Beach, pre-pebbled (and bloody painful in bare feet). Note famous Beatlesesque Helter-Skelter on Pier.
