The show on Nickelodeon was Eugini P.I. Incorrect spelling but it was made in Melbourne and it no longer showing. Thanks my cousin
"Metlink"
now its back on the ABC
"18A"


IIRC, the first episode also shows some kids talking in the subway at
Oakleigh, and later walking down the stairs on that footbridge near
Kensington(?).
Both times, the camera angles seemed to be set up so that you couldn't
tell that the railway was nearby.
It was a few years ago that I saw that, but that's what I remember.
My daughter didn't like it, so I only saw the first episode.

There was one really good episode where it was where all these teenagers doing some illegal activity around the Rail Yard.. I can't remember much but there were a N class and a N Set in the so called Mt Thomas station!

Anyway, the yard had a lot of waggons I forgot what type.. but all I can remember is the ending where a kid's dad who try to stop him hanging out with theses 'bad' kids, he end up having his foot jammed between the rails and the concrete footpath... and he ends up being run over by a N?class loco.. or was it a P Confused

The wagons were various old cars, pass mainly i believe they belong to steamrail. the kid was in the path of the train and his dad pushed him out of the way and inturn got his foot stuck etc and was hit by a T class in VR type livery with like 2 or 2 VR liveried BS style coaches in tow.

You may also recall the kid had a trainset?? shown in a few shots - i now own that trainset - i bought it off a fellow Railpage member who acquired it through his model railway club. the best part for me about owning it is that it was on tv, i also ironically have that episode on tape, dont remember recording it but there u go.

"Comeng 315M"



that episode was on last week during the classic heelers thing every afternoon on seven. someone said it was made last year it was made in 1996 using a steamrail t class as comeng 315M said before. heelers has used the railways a helluva lot in its storylines over the past ten years since the show's been on air ( no wonder the show's shot in williamstown!) its funny seeing the producers screw up disguising the newport yards as mount thomas, especially when you see signs in the background saying champion rd this way and nth williamstown station 100 metres that way. speaking of blue heelers you also see in the older episodes met signage a lot. hmmm i never knew a country town had 'the met' servicing it. finally i think the pilot of stingers was shot completely at the newport workshops, better check on that one.
