You mean 99.9% of Australia's multimillionares?

Probably E classes. Unless of course you literally meant Whittlesea and not APM/Fairfield/Macleod.

Watched an episode of A1 Highway Patrol (UK series) recently, apparently a truck (or a lorry, as they say) with a large trailer carrying a 70 ton bridge girder is as long as three double decker buses. ...

Money would have been better spent on installing accessible tram stops along route 16 (and the other Malvern routes with useless "accessible" D class trams) and extending the 58 to Deakin (where E cla ...

Eltham Trestle enters the chat.

I'm surprised the window covering on trams and buses isn't illegal under VicRoads rules anyway. Wrap a car like that and it would be defected in an instant.

Most of the money towards rail was spent in Melbourne e.g. Level Crossing Removal Project, Metro Tunnel, Suburban Rail Loop, new trains, duplication of the Cranbourne line (and partially the Hurstbrid ...

No "control", Morrison and Hunt are serious damage.

Or they'll plant gum trees (because Straya) absolutely everywhere like Ringwood so the footpaths become slippery from eucalyptus oil, the roots dig underneath the footpaths making 1-inch steps for peo ...

Where are Melbourne's rings of steel to protect the areas with next to no cases? Time to restrict people to LGAs or postcodes.

[quote=Mr. Lane]Do we definitely know the new trams will be shorter than the E class at only 22 meters as some people have said in this and other threads?

It seems a real backwards step to me espec ...

Off-topic, but I do find it funny that JobSeeker recipients, who are living on about $5 a day after rent and bills, are expected to somehow conjure up $1000 for a smartphone just for the likes of Sari ...

There goes Melbourne, 120 + 176 in two days. 500 a day by next week methinks, warmer weather be damned. Great timing to open up and increase the movement radius, all while leaving the absolutely pathe ...

Good idea.  The depot runs will give some passengers a lift of 4 more stops.

Also a good idea sharing the 12 with Kew, if the occasional Citadis makes its way there. It's been ho ...

Can't be worse than running empty from Box Hill to Kew or Vermont South to Camberwell.

Are we short of servicing and storage areas?
bevans
Storage, yes. If every tram was the size of a W class (or a Z3) we'd be fine, but times have changed; our tram depots haven't. Camberw ...

It's been a good innings, the oldest Comengs have proved their worth for 40 years. 320M was a true survivor, having shook off an unprovoked attack by Hitachi 90M in 1989. By comparison, we were alread ...

That's it, time to clear Gargasoulas of all charges and give him his Commodore back.

Plus, the old ones are heavier, and still using tread brakes. Now that is old!!!
justarider
Actually, the tread brake and disc brake Comengs were built simultaneously for the most part.  ...

Monash students should be lucky the SRL even goes there! Box Hill would also like a word regarding close-proximity train, bus and tram connections. Smile

Obviously closing down Warburton after dark is the best strategy to wipe out COVID-19. If people had really had enough, JFK would suddenly have a lot of Aussie mates.

Probably explains why things like the 285, 673 and 745 exist.

Time to change the 5km rule to 2km yet?

Jobs that are stuck in the early 20th century with no future. I'm sure the highly-qualified miners and construction workers in the middle of nowhere can do something else equally useful there with the ...

Is it just a coincidence that the DRC bogies looked suspiciously similar to the Hitachi suburban bogies?
