I tried a one way southbound journey on Fri Feb 23 for daytime. It shows Brisbane to Central and times of 0455 to 2010 but also has the comment of "Trackwork and/or service alerts for this journey". N ...

A lot of workings to Bright had K Class locos working tender to tender. Mainly because they couldn't be turned at one stage so it was easier to run 2 locos with 1 facing each direction.

I tried booking a trip for Feb but the online booking only allows one option which is bus partway. The NSW website only talks about planned stoppages in part of January but is there some reason throug ...

Wedderburn?

Fudging the figures like that makes a complete mockery of the purpose in having the KPI measure in the first place. If there are delays in the system meaning that they need to skip stations, adjusting ...

Ah - what the hell. Let's go Ozride livery...

Yes - there is a platformless loop before Bacchus marsh (Parwan).

And yes, they could build a similar one the other side of BM which is the whole purpose of this thread!!! (Rowsley).

I had forgotten about this post but recall the trip. We arrived at Ararat on time and walked up to Maccas for my son. Bought food to takeaway and walked back to KFC where I was waiting in the queue wh ...

People just have to realise that trains don't have to cross each other at stations only. This is just a carryover from old safeworking systems which are no longer relevant.

Rushworth?

A nice way to promote your business. at least customers will get their containers.

At a price though - so don't be sucked in by the warm fuzziness of the trucking industry. As ...

Kuldalai has stated numerous times that the biggest issue on the Gippsland line is the single track section between Bunyip and Longwarry which has the potential to cause delays not only on the Gippsla ...

Correct - and McIntyre Lane at Yering.

I don't know which crossings are in question but I do know in the past there are laws along the lines that trucks / buses must come to a complete stop at certain unprotected level crossings (even thou ...

I also think The Overland needs to be considered separately if talking cutbacks as it's very different to the V/Line model. Not sure how true but I've read in a few places that GSR doesn't really want ...

There was probably an element of that with the Toolamba line upgrade recently - wasn't some of that funded by the rice company?

Don - even as a Liberal man, i don't believe Jeff did the right thing. I suspect at the time other games were being played.

Brian - in theory yes as the track access fees would surely be calculated ...

Collins Siding?

[quote=don_dunstan]There's a recession on; it may or may not be apparent to you yet (depending on what industry you work in) but there's ominous signs. Look at how worried Denis Napthine has been in t ...

[quote=Casper1975] Now before you all start talking about profits well guess what public transport is not meant to make a profit because it's operated by the government so really when you pay for tick ...

You'll probably find that airlines tend to subsidise themselves across their route network which is something that railways can't really do. As an example, figures quoted some time ago explained why Q ...

Whilst the structure of the internet has possibly not changed that much, "real internet" really means the era when it became readily accessible to the public.

I've been an active volunteer for 30 years and have never heard of leaving carriages at Cockatoo as being standard practice either. As others have said, if you want to run with a light load, you do it ...

[quote=bevans]There needs to be more competition on the network and across the country. If Vline cannot offer a better service than they currently do then offer a service to the likes of countrylink o ...
