[quote=rowdy_]I noticed coming out of Syndal station this afternoon a new-looking sign at the underpass entrance forbidding cycling, rollerblading, skateboarding and the consumption. But what caught m ...

Unsurprisingly Toorak Rd is not on the list. It's one of the busiest roads in Melbourne for gods sake. It should have been done 50 years ago.

I wouldn't call Footscray reliant on lifts when it has DDA compliant ramps at all entrances and platforms (but yes, interchanging sucks). Although lifts are desirable they shouldn't be used alone as i ...

Wait, Frankston trains don't go through the loop now, so what's the fuss about?

I took a ride on the line last friday. Glenhuntley & McKinnon now have LED lighting while Seaford & Chelsea had new poles erected on platform 2 for PID's. Parkdale has become the first station on the  ...

There is no real need for a rail line to Doncaster. As already pointed out Manningham isn't a growth area. In 2012-13, The Australian Bureau of Statistics (3218.0 Regional Population Growth, Australia ...

Looks as though the Terry Mulder's X'trapolis express is still running on the line during the morning peak. I don't really see the point of not running X'traps on the line after they spent the money o ...

Liberal spin previously indicated that they were in the process of removing 40 crossings, which included 13 grade separations on the Regional Rail Link (were never crossings in the first place), 5 on  ...

The only thing I don't like about the new Footscray station is the poor interchanging between platforms (as demonstrated by wongm: http://wongm.com/2014/11/inconvenient-interchange-footscray-for-city- ...

Having traveled on all of Melbourne's railway lines I can tell you that the western suburb lines are reasonably safe, no different from any other railway lines in the eastern suburbs. The majority of  ...

Passenger amenity and comfort are a legitimate reason to withdraw a train. As already discussed the Hitachi's aren't suited for today's modern railway with high expectations from commuters. The lack o ...

[quote=don_dunstan]Do you know that for a fact?

I've had a look at the video on You Tube again and the end bulk-head certainly looks like a Hitachi interior; judge for yourself. The only thing that ...

After playing around with the route a fair bit, I think I may have discovered a bug with the points and signalling system after running football shuttles between the City and Victoria Park. So I start ...
