Upgrades are appreciated by all but what will this provide users or is it maintenance related ?

A bit of both.  A new radio to NodeKKX was commissioned on the weekend.  Camera 3 was added to to the network at Albion but is not yet available via Railpage. New cabling was run and terminated at Albion.

We have again meshed in the EMRG site with connections to Albion and also Mount Dandenong.

A third radio has been added to EMRG which is pointing to Bunbury Street.  There are plans to re-point the network at Bunbury Street to Glenroy and commence connections to the Bunbury Street Railcams from the Melbourne Wireless Network.

So in summary:

1. New camera at Albion
2. New Cabling at Albion
3. Radio Commissioning at Albion for connection to Essendon Model Railway Group (EMRG)
4. New Radios at EMRG connecting to Albion and Mount Dandenong (completed)
5. New radio at EMRG pointing to Bunbury Street (completed)

Remaining:

6. re-pointing and re-comissioning of radio link to Bunbury Street.

Have to say very impressed at the Albion Cams. But will Bunbury St ever go back to being a live watch cam again?

Yes, Bunbury St will be going 'live' soon. Brian and myself will be visiting the site today to point the radio toward the one at Glenroy in order to receive a radio signal and also to reconfigure the routers. Once this happens, it should be 'all systems go'.

We did visit Bunbury St site last Friday and were progressing well until it started to rain. We should be back out at this site later this week or in the very near future to 'complete the picture'.
