I like the 6th photo of Portland Bus Lines/Transit Portland #63 Mercedes Benz O500LE Express and the last photo of the V/line trains with a great veiw.

I agree with Bradley the last photo of the V/Line train is great!

I saw this same train as I arrived at Southern Cross yesterday morning on my way to work, just moments before it was about to depart for Warrnambool, I should've waved at it! :lol:

At least they have a bus service that goes straight to their bus school! It gives aspiring new drivers a last minute chance to take it all in before they sit for their exams. :D
