[quote=Gman_86]How disappointing. I actually thought the entire line was supposed to be getting upgraded to 100km/h or more.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to go and bang my head against a brick wa ...

Still waiting for the Rosstown Railway to be completed.

Blue whales have been sighted close inshore off Western Australia. We are informed that this massive animal has a heart the size of a Volkswagen Beetle.

Helloooowww, Frank Walker from National Taaaaaaaaaaallllz. Laughing
Personally, the National Tiles ad doesn't really bother me, but when I hear the Sportsbet guy start talking, do I ever want to stick ...

The difference between buses and trams/trains is that most Melbourne buses run to rural frequencies that make V/Line look good, they start 2-3 hours later, and with the exception of very few bus route ...

Not V/Line's fault that the Victorian Government's infrastructure hasn't been upgraded since around Federation, or Operation Phoenix at best.

Wall of text incoming...

I also started with a Lima train set back in 1991 or 1992, originally a freight set comprised of an AN green and gold 930 class which inexplicably came with six OO gauge 4- ...

Back in 2003 I used some rusty old Tri-ang/Hornby code 100 flex track (rails only) to reattach the exhaust system of a dark blue VS Commodore which had spun out and ended up asre first into a brick wa ...

Routes 70 and 75, which criss-cross each other a few times before finally going their separate ways. If only Wattle Park (the suburb) didn't look like it was abandoned in 1972.

Aldi at least has its 15c plastic bags made in Australia. Can't say the same about Colesworths who outsourced them to Malaysia, Thailand and ironically Germany.

The 58 (and the 55 before it) terminates in Pascoe Vale South, but it's definitely easier to fit West Coburg on the desto, and is technically still correct, as it is immediately west of Coburg (the su ...

Couldn't the same thing be done with a heap of bird spikes bolted to the sleepers? Given that trains absolutely crawl through Flinders Street it isn't like they are going to go flying into someone's f ...

We have more pressing issues than three-digit tram routes - the D and E class destos with the numbers on the left (can't we just standardise on the infinitely better Hanover units already?)

As for  ...

It would be nice if VicSig could at least update the tram destination page so it isn't fifteen years out of date (the page itself should still be retained for archival purposes). Note that the page is ...

Yeah, I figured they had to be on loan as AFAIK Southbank never had Z classes. Z3s and D1s did run on the "new" 12 for quite some time though, maybe even a year or two before the A classes took over i ...

Sydney, take our lovely, strengthened, D class Combinos while your trams are being repaired. Signed, tram passengers of Melbourne. Laughing
Apparently just running the trams is causing the frames to c ...

Saved by VicSig, I thought I was going senile for a minute... I could have sworn I saw them several times when the 12 was reinstated. Maybe not run by Malvern Depot, but on loan at least.

They really need to allocate some of those B2s on the 57 as well. It's ridiculous that the 57 is the only city bound route that has no bigger tram.

The 57 only runs Z3s f ...

[quote=Obzerva][quote]I agree that the demand of route 30 doesn't justify for the use of E class. Even route 12 would benefit more from E class unless the infrastructure doesn't allow it. In W class ...

Z1 81 was towed by A2 278 back in the early hours of 19/6/2015. Coincidentally, I happened to be walking from the city that night (due to Melbourne having no public transport whatsoever on a weeknight ...

Yes. In Toronto, and some European cities, they don't have a government-issued exemption which can be rewritten by the same government until the end of time. When the DDA exemption ends, the governmen ...

Yes, the thing with proprietary clips on ballasted track is a joke. I ended up with some Märklin C-Track (DC powered, not AC) several years ago. I ended up chopping off the plastic bits around the en ...

If my "news" is accurate, there will be no SRL, no Metro 2 nor anything else for PT for decades to come.

What happened, did the ghost of Henry Bolte come back?

A duck fan? Does that mean it's going to end up in the Yarra like the oBikes? Smile
