Driving through Darlington on South Rd this morning (Sunday 13th), I took a quick diversion to the Tonsley Precinct to see if any sign of test trains running on the Flinders extension.
In summary, no sign yet of steel wheels turning on steel rails, or any new overhead getting scraped.
The situation was:-
1) New colour light signals were illuminated (on red) at either end on the new Tonsley platform.
2) Traffic lights at Alawoona Ave level crossing not functioning (heads uncovered, but unlit).
3) Two sets of temporary crash barriers were still in place across the rail tracks either side of the level crossing.
4) Rail tracks still had a patina of rust.
Further along my drive I made another diversion via Devonport Terrace in Prospect.
Bit of activity there installing catenary and shiny, new copper-coloured contact wire on the Down Gawler line from north of Ovingham station towards Pym Street.
Funny that this was happening if the plan was to be wiring Adelaide Yard during this weekend's shutdown. You'd expect it would be all hands to the pumps in Adelaide.
