Maybe they're going to reinstate platform 1? And they should also do something about the cabin they installed under the bridge as it took away some car parking.

Saw one today around 13:10 sitting on the Pakenham East Depot exit road, obviously got there under its own power, as the catenary was up and there were no diesel-powered helpers nearby.

Well, the overweight VLo's do run on some part of the Ballarat line but they can't go past Bacchus March and I'll also note that some of the works are now viewable in google maps, but not streetview a ...

I don't think there're any trains in Vic that's listenable to via a scanner now, as everything's supposed to be digital radio or via 3/4G.

But not on the Bendigo line as the historic tunnels aren't "wide enough" for two tracks and 160 kph running on the full length and the designated short trip VLo's top out at 130kph due to weight.

Hotels employ staff. (MYOB has its headquarters at The Glen.)
MYOB also has their own dedicated car park in The Glen too.

Well, they did go for the cheapest option for suspension, possibly on the chance of making bank on upgrading it with better later.

The last time I looked at it was....2016, but I first noticed that it wasn't beside the track where it should be in 2008.

I don't know if it's been fixed, but for a long time the down trip-cock at Huntingdale station was in an operating state yet was in a position/orientation where it could not interface with a train if  ...

There were some places load shed in metro, which weren't even recorded on the outage maps. Where I live was one of them. We got power back in an hour, but others nearby were down for longer.

Oakleigh's third platform was removed & they've gone scorched earth on the removed track bed.

Well I personally think that you, Myrtone, have a bias AGAINST viaducts!
stooge spark
I think he even has a bias against road over rail bridges too.

Sorry, but the terrain along the North-South section of the Upfield line favours rail under, ..........
Because Myrtone hates bridges.

Right. And of cause if they get around to triple/quadding, some of what they pulled out will have to be redone.

Huh, so that's the name of that pit which Huntingdale Golf Course used as a water source in the last drought. I thought that the Harris' were dumped in another nearby hole where the pistol club is. Th ...
