Lol Smile In all seriousness, I'm a Victorian. To me a "Jumbo" is one of two things. One sh*ts on the plains and the other IS a plane Razz Some clarification of the subject matter helps, yes? Especially in ...

The intermodal yard should be moved out to the Roe Creek area. That will get rid of the shunt movements that block the crossings. Leave the passenger station where it is. The land value of the existin ...

completely random guess, but QRN?

Would be the most obvious, but speaking to someone in the know a few weeks back  and they said unlikely. I think QRN are looking for something a bit bigger.

Maybe a good idea to accept the words from a bloke whom may just know what he is talking about in regards to the refurbished railcars.

It's all right PAL, I have giv ...

Hosk1956 already correctly answered the "ditch lights" question ages ago. It is the correct answer. Maybe a good idea to accept the words from a bloke whom may just know what he is talking about in re ...

Have you changed the railcars from original? If so, how will we have an accurate representation at the NRM when they are retired!!!  Laughing

Only one bogie on a 3000/3100 is powered so its not quite an easy swap as can be done with locomotives.

Cheers,

Nothing a bit of conduit from one end of the railcar to the other won't fix Laughing  ...

Do the 3000/3100 class have symetrical bogies? ie- can you rotate them on their pivot after electrical disconection and reconect afterwards? If you can then it would be a simple job to just lift the e ...

Cars 3002 and 3007 have track greasers fitted. These greatly increase wheel life. I am sure only one greaser is activated presently.

It takes 5 mins to seperate a 3100 with a "drawbar connection".

No gaps in the Pilbara either. And those rails take 45 degrees on a regular basis. Is the expansion taken up by the weld between rails? I think this is the case, but I am not 100% sure.

I figured the currency would be different. I am very hazey on the add. I only really remember the 747.

This ad? I can only just remember it. Was born in 1980.

From someone who drives in there almost everyday-THERE IS NO FENCE

Nor is there any plans for a fence at this stage.The cost is the prohibiting factor.

Well if you and your mates keep signing in making a nuisance of yourselves people may be surprised in another way. They'll get sick of dorks pretty soon.

Not a troll huh?

Posted 19 Jun 2009 23:43 in South Australia by PAL

Ok then. No more joking around with silly "troll" comments or pictures. To the point it is. I think you are an internet troll. If you need a definition, read bellow.

A troll is someone who posts co ...

It all good Hosk, bigbad is just engaging in a little more trolling.

Don't feed the trolls.....

Ask graffiti and petty crime gangs why they do it and invariably the reason they give is *for the rush*... Take the fences, gates and gaurds away and there'll be less of a rush, and hence (in time)  ...

anyone know which railcar(s) is/are being refurbished? what is being done?

will it be a typical Adelaide half-assed effort with only new floor and blue seat coverings..

OR

will it be like an ...

3000 class refurb starts tomorrow. At least if there is any teething problems, there will be extra cars to cover.

Posted 10 May 2009 12:00 in South Australia by PAL

From my memory there is an allowed amount of bad sleepers. I can't remember what it is. (eg - 1 in 6)

Maybe there is a track worker lurking on here that can shed some light on this?
