The Hunt for Red October.  Captain Ramius speaks Russian with a Scottish accent.  I will admit that Roger Moore is my favourite James Bond,as he was the James Bond I grew up with.  The best Jam ...

I refer you, dear Reader, to page 41 of the November 2020 issue of Catch Point.  My suggestion to Mr Geber, is to sell the railcars so that they can be converted into crew cars, assuming that is possi ...

Grain trains are also running down south.  I have seen several in the last four weeks.

So now we have another First to look forward to.  The first train to Flinders.  At the time of this post, all we know is that it will be on a weekday in early December.  I intend to be a passenger on  ...

As I indicated on my previous post, I was a passenger on the last train to Clovelly Park.  I was the only passenger when the train departed Adelaide.  The train was 4018 and it departed from Platform  ...

I was a passenger on the last train to Tonsley before the Tonsley line was closed for electrification.  I was a passenger on the first train to Tonsley when the Tonsley line was reopened after electri ...

The Barossa Wine Train was, in my opinion, doomed from Day One.  For a start, the return train fare between Adelaide and Tanunda alone was $55.00.  Well and truly beyond my budget.  Bus tours to winer ...

brianph was the first to give a correct answer.

The floor is yours, Brian.

I think it is safe to so say the floor is open, so I will put up a Question.

Many years ago, distances of railway stations from Adelaide were measured in Miles, Chains and Links.  A Mile is a Mile. ...

I am not sure that the answer to Question 12 is correct, given the wording of the question.  Was the National Park named after the railway station or the locality?  I suggest the question be reworded  ...

I know it has been some time since the previous post on this thread.

I have found a solution that works for me.

Vindication.

That is the word of the moment for me.  Back in 1983, I became a Hawthorn Supporter.  When the Adelaide Football Club joined the AFL, I made the decision to remain loyal to Hawthorn.   ...
