Let's hope everyone riding trains over this bridge is first vaccinated and tests negative before they board.

It seems all the remaining mechanical bells are Westinghouse hybrids. How close the the pitch of these bells to the musical note G in some octave?

It's a pity, but LNVG is one of the many operators in Europe that is ordering double decker trains and many are ordering double decker multiple units, something pioneered in Sydney, yet some say doubl ...

Stop all conversion of any part of the suburban network to metro with smaller trains with less floor space and fewer seats.

Is metro really right for a city that developed late enough to bring heavy ...

Seeing this thread, I think of the fact that the premier who cancelled celebrations has previously allowed the worst thing of all in relation to the spread of a virus; mismanagement of hotel quarantin ...

[quote=Dangersdan707]Sydney is an older highly developed city.

Smaller Trains are fine, the high Frequency compensates for it.

Is anyone here still opposed to expansion of a network with smaller trains typically running underground? Metro originated in older cities that were heavily developed by that time.

Are smaller train ...

Use buses with mid length doors and limit the passengers from seating in the front row.
Maybe an interim thing but separating the driver's air circulation and all seats being ...

So those going into quarantine need to be transported into quarantine hotels somehow. But quarantine bus drivers need to be treated more like medical staff and it would be a good idea if the driver's  ...

[quote=Graham4405]Based on this statement and your replies above you want photos from exactly 20 years ago? So today we should post photos from 01/10/2000, tomorrow we should post photos from 02/10/20 ...

So first it will be January to September of the year 2000, then it will be like photos from ten years ago on a blog called Waking Up in Geelong.

If you have been taking railfan photos for at least 20 years, how about posting photos from 20 years ago? If you have your own blog, you might want to consider posting them there.

Interesting to see more freight trams, could there even be some quadruplication of some sections of the network so that freight trams can pass stationary passenger trams?

Would anyone here like to share such photos, especially if taken in the pre-digital era? Scans need to be from the original negatives if taken on colour negative film, or from the original slides if t ...

Some provincial cities once had electric trams, all now have since closed with an exception for a section of track in Ballarat for a museum service and a single line in Bendigo used for a tram tour. A ...

Sales are so bad that Samsung and LG have both stopped production of new model Blu-ray hardware. They had 52% market share between them.

Blu-ray has been around for over a decade, is it more expensive than DVD was back in 2005?

I checked out the preview on Vimeo and it is fuzzy and blurry with some film specks. How about even remastering the old footage from the original negatives and re-releasing it on Blu-ray?

[quote=Carnot]A lot of American TV was shot on 30 fps film. Both 16 and 35mm. Hence when it's frame interpolated to 25 fps (50i in broadcast), it can look different. NTSC video likewise from 60i to 50 ...

I know trains generally operate under a signalled environment but I don't understand why track brakes are absent from trains. Without them, trains often can't stop within line of sight and track brake ...

Most motion picture film was pretty slow (ie. Typically ISO 50 - 200). ISO 50 is generally able to resolve to HD, ISO 200 quite grainy.
