No Mildura trains at the moment has the line been closed?
An UP Manangatang freight went through Ballan in the wee small hours of today.
No Mildura trains at the moment has the line been closed?The Line was never officially reopened. It has and still is under reconstruction. The only reason why trains have "run" on the line is to show that things are happening before the election.
McConnell Dowell, put up another video, the other day, it looks to be mostly footage, we have seen before, however I spotted a short clip of interest.Background music sounds the same as they use in that ABC send up of Nation Building 'Utopia'.
Some time ago, we had quite a bit of discussion of how a new track is built, as in, you can place ballast on the bare track bed, first or lay sleepers, attach rail and then pull the track up through, freshly placed ballast.
Mike, said, he'd seen in places where a ground sheet or polythene sheet, was placed on a prepared track bed and so on.
Well at the 37 to 43 second mark, you can clearly see, that this has been done. Don't blink or you will miss it.
I reckon, this is the sort of detail and quality, that shows, the high standard that, this track is being built, too.
Very pleasing to see.
Ahh, wrong thread, Mods, do you want to turf, this over in the Standard Gauge Conversion, thread, where I meant to place, it, thanks.
This looks like some good quality track being laid here. Will it be class two track? So 130kph for railcars should they be run on this line.
Video of last Sunday`s up SG Fruitee sticking to the 15 kph TSR through Dunolly.Why 15Kmh on this section of the line? It's been DG since '96 and well bedded down. Are the BG trains also limited to 15Kmh as well? Seems out of whack to me!
