There is a great patch of grass besides Narren Warren Road, what's up with that. Seems to curve around like it is some reservation of a future bypass.

The only one I can think of in Geelong worth doing (that hasn't already been done) is McKillop Street, and perhaps Barwon Heads Road and Surf Coast Highway in the future if frequency beyond Geelong im ...

I've used a GPS to clock an X'Trap on the Werribee line. For one second it maxed out at 118 but that was going under a bridge. Seemed to sit at 114. Ride was bad but not as terrible as I expected it t ...

Similar to comment above.  If its loco's that are short, wouldn't it be easier to convert some N sets to standard gauge to bloster that, and just lease a few BG.

The beauty of using seperate locomotives and cars is that when one is life-expired you don't necessarily need to replace the other. The N class has plenty of life left in her.

Would it not make a bit more sense to outline which crossings have the old bells? Buckley St, Essendon still has old bells, and I think Cherry St, Werribee has the old style too.

I heard on the radio it was one transformer, and that the MFB and SP AusNet looked as though they were simply going to isolate the transformer to stop the spread to the others and let the fire burn it ...

What if the changed the traffic lights to an "all go" style arrangement like at Flinders/Elizabeth, or Paisley/Leeds (Footscray)?

[quote=james.au]I would think that the As in storage could come out of storage and take over one or two N Class duties somewhere, freeing up that N class for conversion to operate the (speculated) 4th ...

Does Sunshine count? As in the old Harvestor Factory pedestrian bridge. I know it's a good hundred meters from the station though.

I reckon we should close the Werribee line. I went to Werribee once; got my tyres slashed, true story.

The biggest issue with the free tram zone is that it voids the ability for AO's to catch fare evaders (people who board outside the free tram zone) within the CBD.

And Mitcham and Rooks were the same project - they were done together with the reconstruction of Mitcham station.

Probably the flagship on it's way back (last I saw, it returned empty to Melbourne, split, then each ran other services). I suspect the conductor would only travel in the drivers compartment out of se ...

Am I right in the assumption the VLocity wouldn't have any protection at all? (no TPWS the city side of Werribee, and not fitted with train stops at all)

Sir Topham Hatt is not a controlling dictator, he is the trains’ employer, he is their boss. If the trains do not listen to their boss, what will happen? I seem to recall Sir Hatt threatening to sen ...

In London, if you are caught fare evading you are dragged before the courts to explain why you did not pay your fare. If it's a honest mistake you are fined £80, but those who habitually fare evade,  ...

The Entitlement to Fare Evade is like a virus spreading throughout the system. I'll use Bus Route 200 as an example. It starts in Bulleen and meanders through Balwyn North and Kew, before heading down ...

Another point is that the N sets did not originally feature a BRN buffet car, but two BN cars instead. They were built for the Geelong and Ballarat lines, their current purpose as an InterCity car is  ...

Now you've got me trying to think of alternative names... Latrobe Street or Swanston Street wouldn't work because there are two stations on both of those streets. State Library is one option.

Where d ...

City Circle is a service that goes around the Clifton Hill loop in literally a circle from Flinders Street around to Flinders Street. It ceased as a regular service in 1994 when the City Circle tram s ...

I imagine that grass would be full of venomous snakes too. Rolling Eyes

g00r, please don't use station codes. I don't know where MAS is.

melbtrip, do you know if Railpage has that feature that many other forums have where you can hide a users posts? If so ...

So why don't we offer fuel excise rebates and vastly reduced registration costs to outer suburban residents?

I've often wondered... Why don't we?

I think "true" N cars (i.e. not ex-Zs) will likely reach life expiry around the same time as the N class locos. If you marshalled the lot into 5 or 6 carriage sets you'd have a lot more locos than set ...
