There may be a solution via axle counters being overlayed on the track circuit, though this seems to be an issue primarily faced by Melbourne.

And I wish people would stop claiming incompetence abo ...

Here is my two cents worth.

If the tight curves on the flyover are not lubricated, yes they will chew the flanges away. The fact Vline monitor their wheels and take trains off before they become a  ...

You could try contacting local railway museums. Even Puffing Billy. Another organisation that could help Australian Railway Historical Society.

Just a gentle reminder to all those posting to this forum who are employed by Metro. You may wish to look at the new Communications Policy. It has some clauses (or maybe just clause) covering social m ...

perwaynut's comments about fencing deserve a reply.

This event is a tragedy, and I certainly do not wish to make light of it. I am a parent and grandparent, and I can scarcely imagine how this fami ...

These kinds of incidents are very tragic: for the family, community, driver, emergency personnel and others associated with the incident response. From my experiences, the best control to reduce these ...

In relation to express services, the main reason to run an express service for nine car sets is to allow staging of the platform extensions. And to be honest, it won't really be an express as as many  ...
