We've all squeezed into a busy carriage at some stage and thought:
"...why can't they just make the trains bigger?"
Well, I can tell you that our new trains are going to be so big that we have to extend the platforms at 18 stations.
We literally have to replace 70 kms of overhead wires just to pump enough electricity to power them.
There'll be 20 per cent more room on every train - and we'll be running them more often.
(And unlike the Liberals in Sydney, we won't be getting them built in South Korea. 1,100 Victorians will be building them right here.)
