One thing that I've been wondering for a while is whether the CM's used the parcels dock at Flinders Street. The headshunt (as it is today at any rate) seems too short to hold just a single CM, let al ...

So there was no need for 425 foot platforms which were standard for the Melbourne suburban lines from 1925, so it is likely that the “halts” would have been a short mound, a tin shelter, a red fl ...

The old railway formation near Mount Helen campus used to be very clearly visible back in the mid-80's when I attended BCAE but my last visit a year or so ago, it was very hard to make out due to re-p ...

If the image gallery ever comes back, check my gallery.  There are photos of a Traralgon - Stratford Goods (which I rode!) and track plans for all the stations along the line.

I have fully tabulated data (in M.C.L.) from the original 1880's survey in addition to copies of the original VR 1928 W&W Track Charts.

PM me and I'll arrange to get you copies.

I'm presuming there's an island platform involved....

Check out my Railpage gallery.  In the 1980's, I rode the line on a Traralgon-Bairnsdale goods (with a single 3rd series T up front and a ZLP van) while a friend of mine motorcaded it.  I've got a few ...

I can't recall Newport being any different from other two plaform stations.

Even the brand new Metro WTT doesn't indicate anything special about Newport.  It's lumped in with "All other stations": Do ...

No, it's got wooden double doors in the front - so unless it was a particularly wide gatekeeper, no......

Surely the sharp curve at Royal Park would help  ...

IIRC There's still one on the Up side of the track at the Down end of Coburg station (between Bell Street PCX and the Up platform).

For all those who are going, BY A TICKET as the goons will be standing at Jolimont checking tickets.

Neddie, Eccles, Henry Crun or Bloodnok???

Surely that's not too bad....

That's correct, it's supposed to form X023, the 0802 Down Sandy off Platform 8.  That would tie in with the other sightings.

0730 Up Willy (6360) was a Northern Comeng this morning - it felt quite strange boarding an Alstom Comeng on Platform 5 at North Melbourne...

In regard to Q2.

The LX signs with "50" on them are Predictor Boards.  The "50" is a reminder that the crossing has been set up for trains running over 50kph. Such trains may increase or continue t ...

Remember that Shell is both a customer of, and a supplier to, PacNat...

Both are probably keen to get fuels back to rail ASAP.

Now do they regret sending all those Hitachi sets to the scrappers?

I bet they wish they had held on to them all.They could have benefitted from U-boat bogies.

U-Boats don't have bogies - They'v ...

I also had some doughnuts from Footscray, man are they good or what.

Anyone who is happy having a computer driving their train has obviously never seen the original Thunderbirds TV series.....

Possibly this occurred as an "End of VCE" celebration? Tying the ill-fitting shoes together and throwing them somewhere they can cause the most damage?

Students doing VCE in Cranbourne?????
