Once the LR is opened to Kingsford, it should be a simple matter to extend it to Maroubra Jn and La Perouse. The ROW is still there, bar one or  two minor obstructions like a toilet block and a few tr ...

What connecting curves are being installed at Nth Tce/KWSt, and how will they be  used?

Obviously not as  versatile as a Grand Union, but were all the connections of the olden-day GU regularly used?

On the ESR, you obviously couldn't run a tramway scrubber off the 1500DC OH, so it had to propel its own power supply, but with tram OH at 750V, the scrubber could run off that source. Hence my questi ...

Will the new LR and tram tracks that are set to open in the near future in Sydney and Adelaide require scrubbing to ensure electrical conductivity before they are commissioned?

Could this be a job f ...

What an amazing map, provided by TfNSW and published in the SMH this week. It showed 20 or so under/over bridges that allegedly need modification or replacement. Bloody hell - why?

Interesting to see what happened last Sunday when, I believe, trains started running to what I still want to call Wickham. The PIDs in the trains showed the end of the line as "Hamilton - Newcastle" w ...

A grand union would be cheaper to build now than in a few years' time. Also, if full use were to be made of a GU junction, there would need to be a signal box, as this location had in days gone by (or ...

With a consist of 36 cars, what are the splitting/marshalling arrangements at each end of the run? And how long does it take to walk the length of such a train?

Power supply for the NLR? The video flythrough website animation shows panto collection.

The tandem facing and trailling crossovers in the double-track tunnel immediately north of Wynyard station were electro-pneumatic in function, controlled from a small cabin set into the tunnel wall.

I believe that there will be double-track connecting  curves between the two lines at the Hay/George Sts intersection, in the NW and SW directions. As for how this will affect interoperability between ...

Where do we post news of overseas tram happenings? Here, or in Trams and Light Rail?

Cheers.

Speaking of aesthetic values and the use of OHW, check out the T3 line in Paris. Charming structures, running on reserved track, and having grassed surfaces. Tres bon!

I think this line, from Sydney Yard to Darling Harbour, was opened with the original line in 1855. Could someone  verify my understanding of its history, as follows:

1. opened as single line

2. du ...

Someone in the above postings mentioned that trams transferring between the Watsons Bay line and the George St line  at the King St/George St intersection would not have been carrying passengers. Doub ...

Some very interesting, amazing and downright ridiculous stuff going on here (TfNSW, not RP).

But can anyone answer my original question that started this thread, i.e. which way will the connecting cu ...

Some time ago, a very senior member of the tram fan community suggested that Hay/George should be fitted with a grand union junction, as per Balaclava Jun, or as was King William St/Nth Terrace, Adela ...

There will be connecting curves between the two LR lines at this corner. Which way will they operate?

The last tram to run on the Sydney network in Feb. 1961 was 131S, the breakdown car which followed the passenger convoy from Kensington Junction to Randwick Workshops.

Or was it?

Rumour had it a ...
