The Port Melbourne railway line closed in 1987, but this train wanted to go there.
(Thanks to Terry who spotted it in time for me to snap a pic. It’s possible the sign is stuck, since it looks like the same carriage was snapped recently elsewhere.)

Hopefully this means all the details will be published soon, as so far the information published (by third parties) has been pretty vague. Some detail is contained in this summary.

I have to mention my favourite bus- destination – there’s a 903 that travels down Warrigal road, bound for “Shunshine.” I rang the bus company to tell them ages ago, but have seen it numerous times since so obviously my message didn’t get through to the people who change these things.
Do they shun the sunshine in Shunshine?
“Melbourne’s a growing city and you have always going to get crowds but we should have a situation where people can’t squeeze onto the train.”
Did you actually say that? Verbatim?
I thought it may have been an old photo but I guess the “Metro” means it’s post-1987. Just!
@Jen, no, they messed up both the grammar and the meaning. Since corrected:
“Melbourne’s a growing city and you are always going to get crowds but we should not have a situation where people can’t squeeze onto the train.”
