I’m pretty sure Elecrail owned this set originally, surely they wouldn’t scarp it?

Thanks for the information. Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the new design (should have stuck with the old one.)

Around 10 minutes ago, I saw a Comeng set near Beaconsfield which had Connex-like stripes on the front of the cabs! It didn't have a Connex logo on the top, but rather a PTV logo where the blue & yell ...

[quote=Gauntlet]The railway line between these two stations has had level crossings removed by all four methods - ie. road raised, road lowered, rails raised, and rails lowered.


Also, the two ...

[quote="Heihachi_73"]Refurbished Harris 908M is still going strong today as H car BCH135, despite one caption saying it would never run again!

Bit of a bump here. Anyways, Vicsig lists 561M-1131T-565M as stored as well. However, it's actually in service as I saw it today going through the Cardinia Road Level Crossing.

Does Mont Albert still have a mechanical bell? If it does, it's that quiet that it's impossible to hear from inside the train (blame the cashed-up NIMBYs).

No, it's got Bar ...

[url=/user/2][b]@bevans[/b]: Your welcome. They did air a news story on it on 7 News over ten minutes ago.

UPADTE (6:18PM): Made out one of the carriages numbers to be either 516M or 518M. Not to sure which carriage caught on fire.

There's still two crossings in Pakenham (my local suburb) with Westinghouse Hybrid bells (Main Street & Racecourse Road) McGregor Road has E-Bells installed on the crossing in early 2014, and Cardina  ...

7 News report on the station. BTW, they messed up big time and said that it dates back to the 1980's when the Frankston line opened. The Frankston line w ...

If you get the title of the thread, basically everytime you see a crossing that now has E-Bells in place of the older style mechanical bell at any level crossing in Melbourne, you post it in this thre ...

What about the Platform 1 building at Clayton?

BTW, My petition will see all three station buildings being relocated. Thanks for helping me.

EDIT: Petition started. ...

I wasn't aware of Clayton being heritage listed. There's nothing mentioning its heritage listed at the actual station. I'm starting a petition to save the buildings at Carnegie & Murrumbeena. I think  ...

I'm shocked that nothing is being done to save the buildings at Carnegie, Murrmbenna, and Clayton. Disgraceful destruction to heritage.

When did they stop installing nose doors on the power cars?
They leaked when it rained apparently and they let the draughts in at speed.

Interestingly ...

I came up with some joke names for the stations (Just for laughs):


*Daniel Andrews Sucks

*Al Bundy

*No Skyrail

*You're Fired.

Hooray for skyfail! Less jobs and another reason to boot Daniel Andrews out.

Should you add refurbished Harris 908M and friends.

They got flooded at Windsor on 7 February 1989 and some of the carriages were never used again.

Thanks for letting me k ...
