Isn't the Burnley group only the weekend 12/13th January? The Sandringham line will be back in operation (closed 2-6 Jan)

Another "equipment" failure, this time at Murrumbeena apparently causing most peak hour Westall services to terminate at Caulfield in the afternoon peak, till just after 7:30pm. The subway at Caulfiel ...

[quote=Boss 2][quote]The Premier has got the media down to Newport today to declare the first train complete. No big red curtain like the VLo launch all those years ago, sadly, but certainly explains ...

Pit renewal at Hawksburn on the Caulfield Local tracks. I believe Vicsig has photos with the ballast wagons derailed so that probably delayed things.

This morning the ballast was still being put d ...

The PDF download (massive ~26mb) from the link below has a centre terminating track in the plans... not saying that it is the actual track design but they must have got the idea from somewhere...

Do they provide a lift. Isn't it mandatory to provide access for people with disabilities when designing station access.

This is an additional entrance, so not sure if it applies ...

New entrance/exit (stairs only) being built from Platform 4 Caulfield, in between the cafe and station building. Too bad they didn't make it a ramp + stairs (tree in the way)

Noticed some Comengs are still (last week and this morning) on the "old" timetable... e.g. 0746 ex Caulfield still announces stopping at Malvern, then express to Sth Yarra

Some work has been done on the up side of Richmond digging out the mudholes on the Sandringham, Caulfield Through/Local lines over the past week or so.

The mud hole (or rather, pit) on the Caulfiel ...

Caulfield platform 2 was having the Myki barrier controller podium fitted this morning and the frankenbarriers were fenced off (just Pl 2)

There are plans to remove the Frankston line from the loop on weekends in the (possibly next?) timetable change. This leaves to question whether Sandringham should stay in the loop on weekends as well ...

I wonder when they will come back and put in the remaining concrete sleepers that are lying by the side of the track basically from Glen Iris towards the city seeing as the upgrade is "complete." Prob ...

It's only on one end of the set, which happens to be 69M WinkRolling Eyes

Some of the LCD screens (not all) were on this afternoon on Pl 3/4 at Melbourne Central, displaying the standard listing of next train plus next 3 trains (instead of 1) with limited express/express/st ...

Have a cross platform interchange at Huntingdale for Dandenong bound services, Oakleigh for citybound services? Oh wait, that would be too much like Hong Kong.

The more "rusted" colour thinner sections facing the platform (in the photo above) are mesh covering the windows, probably to stop the glass from being smashed. The other side has a coffee window (und ...

Some strange workings/scheduling tonight as a result of the disruptions. Was announced around 6:30 at Melb Central that all Burnley group trains would be running direct and to head to Richmond via Cau ...

How about reverting to the daytime weekend routing of all trains in the (C&)MATH stations via up local and down through tracks? It's great to have a consistent 10 minute frequency even though it break ...

Rather than blocking all these other systems smart fare cards why not work with them to allow them to access the myki system so a Singaporean who holds an ezlink card can just use that for fare paym ...

It great if the state government can tell  people (that buy a single zone weekly fare or longer and wish to travel in both zones 1 and 2 on the weekend), to stay with metcard ticketing system if they  ...

what's the X'Traps like?

For the passengers, acceptable. For the driver, woeful.

For the passengers, it depends where you are standing/sitting.. the middle of the carriage suffers from lack of ...

Just look to probably the worlds best fare system - the Hong Kong example.

No hassle scanning on and off there, even at tramstops. Light rail has scanners on the stops.

I've never had a hassle with ...
