Sorry Steve, but people are definitely more stubborn than you given them credit

Here in Perth there are daily traffic jams on the Kwinana and Mitchell Freeways while the trains run past down the ce ...

I know that Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia had Upper Quadrant GRS Electric Signals.  

WA recovered theirs in 1966 when the standard gauge was commissioned through  ...

Wouldn't a better name for the Esplanade be Betty's Jetty?  Another Emperor's call

After all, what's wrong with The Esplanade?  It's next to the Esplanade Busport after all.

Suburban Steam finished in October 1968 with the advent of the ADK railcars, however the wooden loco hauled carriages lasted until the late 80's being hauled by diesel locos.

I have looked at the track cleaning thread ([url=https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p1578031.htm]https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p1578031.htm) and it helps a bit.

I live close to the ocean and the salt ai ...

What is on  today to warrant extra trains?  Maybe the Eagles welcome at Subi.

In WA  there are 5 large signal cabins still around, albeit it no longer in use.

Kwinana - 40 levers still in place.  It originally was at Koojedda on the old eastern railway.

Claremont - 45 lev ...

[quote]Has there been any discussion on this report on Railpage, or as usual have I been to one eyed. I have found it extremely interesting reading. He maintains the current lack of capacity is cause ...

Went to the Dr Who Orchestral Concert last night at the Arena.  After the event special trains were rostered leaving Perth at about 10:30pm.  When the B set Mandurah bound train arrived at the Undergr ...

Depending on how much travel you intend to do each day, you can buy cash tickets at any station or on any bus for 2 or 3 hours travel, depending on you destination, or a dayrider (also cash at station ...

Bennett Brook Railway's Signals Department has recently re-furbished and erected a bracket semaphore signal at Whiteman Village Junction.  It is definitely the only bracket semaphore in WA and probabl ...

Changing Midland trains to platform 9 is a good idea.  There is more clear platform room on platform 9 than there is on platform 8 with  the pillars supporting the car park being closer to the edge of ...

There is also a Kalgoorlie tram body inside Revolutions museum at Whiteman Park.

Yes, chased it from Dardanup to near Boyup Brook with Phil Melling.  Got to ride the branch in the following year - I recall you rode that train too?

Back in the 1960's when I took the 19 tram down Royal Pde to school, on Fridays there was a short shunt tram to Ievers St Parkville opposite Princes Park for the Vic Markets.  It was a chance to see  ...

I would think that 130km of closed track between Pemberton and Bunbury and so the cost and availability of suitable road transport would be a fair reason as to why they have not been moved

The Bennett Brook Railway (BBR) is holding an Enthusiasts’ Day at Whiteman Park on Saturday August 4 commencing at 10 am and running until 5 pm.  It is a day for the BBR volunteers to play trai ...

Looks like a lower quadrant spectacle plate and a semi-automatic upper quadrant arm. Unique!!

Thanks guys for your input.  It really confirms my thoughts on clinkering.  Earlier this year I fired constantly on a 5km loop trips with a layover of only about 2 minutes between trips.  I had used t ...

When in working, the blower was always kept on even when steaming hard, as it helped with burning the coal more in an even manner then having it turned off, & less likely to clinker the fire, only ...

I no longer live in Melbourne but would like to know if the footbridge at Phoenix Street on the Upfield line between Jewell and Brunswick is still there.  It was always a mystery why the bridge was ev ...

From the figures bandied about it appears as though it is the Midland component that is overcrowded and not the Fremantle component.

Why not make the suggested shuttle be only Perth to Bassendean a ...
