Come on guys.

Bracks promised a rail line to be built by 2003 to South Morang back in 1999. Nothing happened until 2009 when the election was imminent. Brumby said it wouldn't happen until "2021" a ...

So, what happened with Labor's big plans of quadruplication over 10 years ago?

Just wait until next year and make sure Liberal wins for this to happen.

Will never happen under ALP.

Saw one of those new trams (E-Class) being tested in the city last night. Looked great, bright LEDs. Nicer than Citadis.

Will these finally see the retirement of the Z class & A/B class?

Yep, this is definitely 671M! Went to the site recently Smile

Thank you Smile
Site looks quite impressive.

Is this 671M?

Don't believe it's 500M either, so 671M seems the only logical explanation. I haven't seen any mention of it on here (apart from, not even  ...

I'm surprised people actually still smoke though. Why would you want to waste $20 on a packet of those things to end up with yellow teeth, nails, wrinkly skin and bad breath!?

It does need separating.


Here's a video I found on YouTube:


3 fire appliances were in attendance at the event.

Sorry to dig up an old thread.

Just got word of one of these trams has been totally gutted by fire tonight.

Sad to hear.

They seem to have gone through most of their stock already.

Apparently only 180 units this year and another batch some time in January.

I agree that Centre Road would be easier, but I also suggest that both should be done at the same time.

My vote is putting the road under.

Sorry 42101, but it is perfectly valid to call 000 in this situation - as SteamtoStay says, there is a valid threat to life.

To who's life? Why would you care about the surfers' lives?
