The staff is very helpful. The train is comfortable, the only drawback was the change of train to a bus (which luckily took us to Melbourne) pity the issue of flooding. The only thing I would ask the staff, is that foreigners who do not speak the language well, speak slowly and modularly, since I understand almost nothing because they speak too quickly. Thanks for everything, Lee is a good boy.
