It's funny to see people questioning spending on rail in a railway forum.  No, seriously I giggled at this post.

Come to WA where our last state government spent over $3 billion on 50 odd kilometre ...

Yep on the no value spending of the conservatives (I hate calling them liberal).  Down the road from where I live they are spending $1.2 billion on less than 40km of road for the North Link.

So will we be getting MetroNet or have the conservatives emptied the bank account so thoroughly that it will be a non starter?

I was chatting to a bloke who has a mate who lives in York.  They were all really pissed about the landfill facility that was planned for the area.  Supposedly +1000 tones / day.   All trucked in down ...

No, I've not asked anyone.I was just curious as to a ball park cost.

I took the little prairie back and we ran it and the other one they had in stock on their test track.  There was a NOTICEABLE difference.  So I left with the other model.

It's what I expected, but gathering opinions is always useful.

Hi there,

yesterday, the loco Superintendent picked up a new 45xx (GWR small prairie).  It looks lovely.  But on running it has a noticeable growl that actually cycles with the driving wheel rotati ...
