I could have sworn we had poles in the Hitachi doorways though, I wonder why they were taken out.

DDA...? Rolling Eyes
The article says that for now, only one Comeng, and the 18 new X'traps will be con ...

Swapping some Endeavours for some V/Locities or even Sprinters wouldn't be a bad idea - if they could be gauge converted, that is ;)Not sure about Sprinters (I assume they are), but Vlocities are defi ...

It is only CITADIS that cannot tow or be towed by other types. There is no restriction on COMBINO towing.

Wasn't the Mullhouse Citadis being towed/assembled with an A Class being attached?Yeah, but ...

I don't think there is appropriate signalling infrastructure to allow this move, however I stand to be corrected.The time needed for the driver to change ends may have been another issue,

Why not hav ...

Good write up Riccardo.

Good input David Peters and john-ston.

Poor input sas85 and Aaron. How about instead of trying to flame Riccardo, point out why you think he is wrong?

Adelaide has a  ...

No wonder I want to get out of Boronia.

I can only speculate that it was easier to run the busses up Punt Rd rather than into the city?Correct, and things ran much more smoothly this way than they did in previous occupations that ran from F ...

It was a planned bus subsitution. Maintenance works at Burnley.

1. The system seems to be designed around the frequent (or semi frequent) Melbourne based traveller. What happens when overseas or interstate tourists board a tram and find that they can't buy a Myki  ...

I can't understand the majority of your post. But we didn't get rid of paper tickets just because they were old.

You've started a thread on the same subject before.

As nice as an Aussie designed and built fleet would be, it is entirely impractical and not financially viable. Sure both the siemens and xtraps have had their problems, but we would still be waiting f ...

This was always going to happen.

They were told at the beginning to just buy Perth's system. Or London's. Or any of the many working smartcard systems.

But no, they're too stupid to learn from S ...

Magnetic stripe was already old technology when we got it, touchless Smartcards are still a relatively new product. Look at Adelaide, they have a magnetic stripe ticket system that is over 20yrs old.

Thankyou for expanding on that ZH836301, I already know and agree with what you are saying, but hopefully some people learnt something.

Pretty sure 671m could never come back. Ever.

That's a fairly awful generic design; sorry.Yup!

Looks like something from "Lend Lease Internal Design Team." Rolling Eyes

It's in the same condition it was five years ago.

I think Per1 might be a sockpuppet of Metro Transit?

Even better if operation of those controls could also function as a vigilance-control input.That's the idea, if the task-linking idea was implemented, I think it would be very rare for the driver to b ...

There is two lunatic female drivers that I have come across.  They are so bad they even abuse passengers inside the tram via the PA for things such as poulling the coord too late and pulling it and th ...

But if the driver is active by using the gong, master controller, door controls etc, the vigilance is reset. A question regarding the linking to the audible warning controls, does the timer stay reset ...

Willison?

Good luck to Mr. Moynihan in his new position as media adviser and spokesman for Lynne Kosky. He was a good transport reporter who actually had a want to learn more about what he was reporting, which  ...
