To my most darling of posters, [url=/user/8455][b]@RTT_Rules[/b]. I have limited interest in debating with you, because you simply like to bring in irrelevant distractions from the original argument, ...

Hahaha my gosh.

There are some absolutely terrible takes here. When presented with incontrovertible factual evidence, that the Federal LNP simply does not want to fund Victoria, the party hacks sta ...

Hey [url=/user/77824][b]@justarider[/b], when you say 'sinking' what do you mean?

Yes, well never let a good pandemic go to waste — As the saying goes!

In relation to the future of the Alamein line, I think a heavy rail line is not on the books.

For one, if you wanted to link ...

It is not appealing not is it a good look to have diesel trains running via the terminals at Melbourne Airport.

[quote=John E]Converting the Alamein line to a tram doesn't make sense. The line already crosses 2 tram lines that go via camberwell junction (70 on Riversdale Road and 75 on Toorak road) so it's unne ...
