The question is though can the trains physically get to maximum speed. I doubt there is anywhere in the entire Melbourne network where a Comeng actually hits 115.

There's at least half a dozen sect ...

Is that video sped up ever so slightly? It appears so to me.

A late running 9461 was through Flinders St at 1240 with X42-X43.

Fairly sure this is due to the locos being utilised this morning to rescue a de-pantographed Comeng from just down of Officer after ...

Yeah right, "Hi there" how many posts have I see this started with, your not from RIO, they do not do things that way, get a life and stop logging in with different names to ask silly questions.  If a ...

Yeah, I considered the possibility that the cutting may have made it 'feel' faster, who knows.

It's always been the up services that have felt particularly fast. You're dropping down a reasonably s ...

They do have heaters and also periodic blasts of air to reduce settling of the sand. However, as already mentioned, I don't think one weekend is going to cause too much chaos.

Further, that's actual sand.

The stuff in the Siemens isn't, it's some sort of gel with sand and metallic particles mixed in to maintain rail conductivity.

The Siemens sanders contain dry sand t ...

As new rail has only been laid out between the Dandenong group lines (I keep forgetting which two lines is called which name) I can only assume that these lines are going to have rail replaced - a ...

Comeng also overshot Cranbourne, too. Oh how easily we all forget!

That incident was proven to be 'Driver Error'

2/ new dude at the union, needs to establish himself

You may want to ask around a bit about this Marc Marotta. You'll probably find that this 'new dude' is more than well established.

Reguarding the current disruptions on the frankston line, I take it they are using the center platform at morabbin to reverse the trains back to frankston?

They sure would be.

And FYI... http:// ...

Parapets in this instance will be the side 'walls' if you like. The bits that stop you driving off the edge.
