[quote=62440][quote]Are there many platforms on the Gawler line that would allow 6-car running? Personally I think the mixture of 3 and 4 car EMU's as justapassenger discusses above is probably the fu ...

Most electrical technology in Australia is now imported, some even from our little cousin New Zealand.

On wind farms in SA many of the towers have been locally made, th ...

Is there any reason we aren't seeing 6 car consists being run in the weekday peak. I've noticed several services are extremely crowded, such as the 0744  and 0749 during the morning peak and the 1720  ...

How would a Port Augusta Rail service compete with the current 3 return buses per day? (4 on Tues & Thurs)

[quote=kipioneer][quote]Meanwhile, with no daily rail service beyond Ararat, there appears to be no similar call for V/Line to run to Adelaide. I would have thought that, with GSR needing Government ...

Can anyone advise how much damage ( if any) was done by the piney bushfires to any of the old broad gauge north lines? Thanks.

How do the TVs get reception as the station is underground and out of view from the satellites?

It should also be noted that the Port Augusta stations have been working on reduced output for a number of months now

4004 has the new door sounds, similar to 4019 as well as the emergency exit stickers on the seats like 4020. Is this what is being done at Dry Creek?
