Which sidings still have to be worked manually and which have been fully signalled seems to be an area of some inconsistency with regards to RFR signalling. Common sense would dictate that the most of ...

Good thing all the trains were running on the Sunday and not the Saturday as the weather was much better for it on the latter. I've put 38 photos from the day http://thumbs.fotopic.net/491042000559.jp ...

I saw it by chance at about 12:15 am this morning, heading west along La Trobe St at Swanston St.

With the temporary closure of the Burnley Tunnel, Yarra Trams ran some extra services on routes 3, 57, 67, 70 and 72 (or parts thereof) on Monday 26th March in the morning and afternoon peaks.

So the D2s were programmed for the 69, even though (if I understand Gwier properly) the 16/69 combination came well before them?

The 8/22 and 16/69 mergers happened around October 2004, and the fir ...

It's perfectly OK for B class to complete 90 degree turns at 30 km/h unless the track condition is really bad.

You have got to be kidding. If you were turning left from Spencer St into Flinders at  ...

Right.  and with a Combino, I wouldn't be confident enough to take it around a curve faster than 10 km/h even if I was the driver.

It hasn't stopped some drivers from doing it. Maybe not so much wi ...

Whatever route 15 means today, be it Moreland -- St. Kilda or Melb Uni -- St. Kilda-Grey St., it shouldn't have been used for St. Kilda / St. Kilda-Grey St. to Melb Uni.

Well no, not if you subscri ...

People would also prefer to not see them end up like some of the stuff left over on the Upfield line, either. You won't save something if you just stop using it and leave it in situ - the signal box a ...

Noted a few Route 63 shuttles still running this afternoon.

Again there were no Route 4s to be found - this time waited at Caulfield from 16:30 - 17:00 without seeing one, and I then hoped on a wes ...

Speaking of shuttles, the St Kilda Festival yesterday provided some altered tram workings. Route 16 was divided in two, so there were some route 69s to be seen operating again on the eastern section,  ...

Craig,

I think you may have been there a bit too early, for I remember reading that the shuttle services in the afternoon were to run between 4:30 and 7:00 P.M.

Yes, maybe you were just a tad ea ...

Noted there didn't seem to be any route 4 (St Kilda Junction - East Malvern) trams running this afternoon for some reason. I was hoping to some more W-class gunzelling.  Sad
Route 63 (Hotham St/Bri ...

Can you check the link to the first photo?

Oops, sorry - I think I had them around the wrong way. They should be right now (I hope):

Are drivers being instructed via their table cards to put up route 4 for the St Kilda Junction - Caulfield - East Malvern extras? More than one tram has been sighted (not just by me) for this to be ju ...

As you might be aware, there are some interesting tram movements to be seen as a result of the extra trams deployed by YT to assist with passenger loading while the Seimens braking issue gets sorted o ...

The tertiary form is different to the primary/secondary form(s). As far as I remember, the tertiary concession form did not have any provision on it for also buying a yearly or half yearly ticket. The ...

Yes, it is. Motorists don't need any encouragement to try to dodge booms. I've noticed some train drivers tooting the horn a couple more times when they leave stations with level crossings immediately ...

Some intersections along Sydney Road anad Melville Road have been equipped with T-lights in recent years which can be used to gain tram priority; if it were feasible to do so I'm sure YT and VicRoads  ...

How is stopping/express selection made on the Upfield line, particularly between Royal Park and Coburg (I think)? Is it manual (e.g. a button pushed by someone) or automatic (speed detection in a part ...

...suburban locations don't have the random X's in them. From memory the only ones with X's are BOX and FEX, both legitimately so.

Also BXR, CXT, and FLX.

Ahhh yes, I know BXR and FLX, but what is ...

I was cruising down Sydney Rd this morning at 10am and looked up to see D1.3511 whizzing past outbound! I can only guess it got onto Royal Pde at Victoria St from Swanston St, and was headed to Brunsw ...

Anybody who regularly goes down there knows that everything flows much better in peak hour when the clearway is in operation, except where some loser has left their parked car. Once you get rid of the ...

I took [url=http://zipitidoodah.fotopic.net/p37009815.html]this photo of N462 but didn't realise that it had LED marker lights at the time until I looked at the photo later. They're quite distinct bec ...

Unknown set (Can't read the numbers from my office) passing though Macaulay City bound right now.

It is good to see a Hitachi on the Upfield line every now and then. (Incidentally, how come Upfield ...
