They have moved a couple of wagons out about a year ago, and may have put them back shortly after. But this was the first movement on the line in years, they are in long-term storage rather than just  ...

Are you only referring to Down services (ie Melbourne to Ballarat) or did you also look at Up services (Ballarat to Melbourne)?

I would suggest it's probably for the same reason timings have been e ...

That would be the corner of Sydney Rd and Barkly Street in Brunswick, right near Jewell Station. One of the few bits of the tram network I know well!

Open floor.

Regent?

Open floor if correct.

I'm not especially convinced Labor doesn't want the East West Link either - if that were the case, they would be more than within their rights to say "We won't honour contracts signed at this late sta ...

The one from 27 July has the same problems mate.

What's more, this is not the first time it's happened. I remember checking a Ballarat line timetable around the start of 2013 that had half the servi ...

Seems like they're imposing an extremely strict testing regimen that covers not just safety but also punctuality: http://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/news/gold-coast/gold-coast-light-rail-services-sti ...

I think it's called future proofing. They have the opportunity to dig out the area, it isn't affecting train services so while the equipment is onsite, why not?
