I always thought it was Windsor for the past hundred or so years. Smile

Hurstbridge line = eastern suburbs, expect it to remain unchanged for another fifty years like the Lilydale, Belgrave and Alamein lines.

As for building 20km of new tracks, squeezing/smashing stations along the way - its a big ask

20 years too late for that, the government had its chance in the late 90s(?) and blew it when the decrepit unmaintained overhead got pulled down by a Comeng (which was apparently doing brake tests at  ...

Real life, alas, is somewhat more complicated.

Powerline wheelsets will fit in Lima Commonwealth bogies without modification. Most other wheelsets like Athearn have longer axles which are not even close to fitting in the tight Lima bogies. Note th ...

I have seen an entire 7 car Tait miss the platform without report or repercussion. There are some things that one sees and some things that on ...

Any chance we can tart up a Hitachi and run it through there on opening day when everyone expects to see a shiny new train? Laughing

Yep, takes a while these days. Apparently the Sunshine West mail sorting facility ended up with the coronavirus in July or early August so a lot of stuff ended up being diverted to Strathfield NSW. I  ...

Won't they be by Changchun though like the HCMTs? Smile

[quote=Lockie91]The area is well served by trams, the No.57 tram should be extended to run the entire length of Milleara Road. (5.8km) This fills your Keilor East black hole. The route should then fol ...

Never had any issues with my trusty old Limas on Märklin C-Track (not sure whether it's code 83 or code 90 - the rails are 2.1mm). V/Line orange and grey B80 (since sold), Santa Fe FP45, and countles ...

Even on wongm's Tram Detective site it states that 5017 hasn't been seen since 5/6/18 (probably the same day it collected the truck). This is actually the same page where I first noticed that 3011 had ...

With Alstom taking over Bombardier, I hope it doesn't mean the abrupt end of E class trams, we're still 200 short.

Not to mention Vlocitys, I can't see V/Line passengers being too impressed with di ...

Wish they could do the same with Camberwell and Kew depots, I'd do anything for a few B classes back on the 109. Smile
