Does anyone know what the Tasmanian rail speed record is and when it was set?

I seem to recall something about an R class pacific doing a speed run but have no evidence.

A "Mobile Motel" might work but would need to be 4 star for less than the cost of a flight plus a non-mobile motel. Departing after 2200 and arrivng around 0700 and offerring breakfast, etc. Perhaps r ...

This is the site of the J.T.Gunns factory that built the trams for Launceston.

I seem to recall the box had a builders plate stating " Water supply department 1912" or something.

"past my place but the 1pm burnie bound train".

This info is only useful if we know where "my place" is.

If it is the central coast then the 1 pm train would be #36.

If my place is near western Jun ...

Totally agree.Its a bit like the additon of non-existant hyphens or slashes into train numbers.32 runs six days a week - when it runs on a Friday it is 632. It is not 6-32 or 6/32 or .......

Instead of VECCI's third airport perhaps we need dedicated high-speed urban rail links.Lines that have limited stations and only connect with regular Metro trains at a small number of stations. As far ...

Level Crossing visibility could be an issue. There is a lot blocked viewline around the 45 degree mark.
