    Keep an eye on the monitors. Train routes change often - the train you thought you were taking will change with no notice, especially if en route to Flinders St.

    Careful with the monitors on the platform, as the staff always switch them back and forth to see what train is next.

    Built in 1859, Southern Cross station was renovated in '05 to include an undulating roof that covers an entire city block. At the western end of the station is a colorful "History of Transport" mural. Read more

    Absurd that there are no automated ticketing machines for V/Line, or ability to buy ticket on train. 2 slow staff & too many people waiting to buy their ticket as the minutes tick by.

    When leaving Etihad/Dome: walk to far left metro entry. Go to Flinders St end of platforms for more space & a seat on the train. Always seems to run more Glen Waverley trains than is necessary.
