Are the sleeper seats meant to be cheaper than a sleeper cabin ?

I came up in a conversation about Avon yard, but she mentioned the fuel depot was on the other side of town.

Someone told me today that rail used to cart fuel up there, but now goes by road.

According to google maps satellite view, there's a group of houses on Wayne st Hazelmere that border on to the rail reserve, perhaps 10 - 20 meters away from the rail line.

Hazelmere might be worth checking out. Some of the houses are quite close with nothing obstructing the view. Or maybe Stratton or Swan view might also be worth checking out.

Sorry, you're right. They have access to a small section for servicing and repairing near the east road entrance. Hardly a large section though.

I don't think selling off major national infrastructure is a good idea. It should remain in governments hands for the sake of public interest rather than trying to make a profit like it would be in pr ...

How does the forrestfield grain  terminal fit into the logistics of it all?

It makes you wonder why they didn't reserve land for the hsr 30 years ago when they first proposed the idea. They could have even leased some on the land off in that time and in doing so, would recove ...

Does anyone know if there is still track in place on site at the former swan site?

Correct if I'm wrong, I'm only saying this from looking at Google maps. What if they bypassed the entire Campbelltown urban area, that looks a long way short of 67 km of tunnel and much cheaper.

how would freight go from Perth to Queensland, especially  northern Queensland.

It sure took them a long time to get their act together.

Am I'm right in assuming Australia's the only country in the world where railways are still declining while every  one else is bringing them back ?

[quote=Watson374]Yes, and yes.

The suburban railways are congested and relatively slow; often the routing is sub-optimal and not conducive to high-speed operations. Attempting to run a VFT service ...

In the old days, if you wanted to cart freight from Perth to Melbourne, would you have to make arrangements with Westrail, AN and V Line separately?

Its funny how they wanted to sell it the moment it made a profit. I don't know whether that was a good thing or bad thing.
