does anybody know where a proposed caroline springs station would be. as it is the melton line in the vicinity of caroline springs is situated alongside the deer park industrial area and after that th ...

back in 2004 i travelled the whole met train tram and bus system over a  5 months period and with the connex system or as it was then the m/train and connex system i waited for a train on every statio ...

i can't understand how graffiti costs thousands of dollars to clean off. when ive seen the work being done to clean the graffiti off its just been a case of one guy with some specialised detergent and ...

what about the subway at southern cross?  has that been metlinked if the decision is made ever to reopen it to the public

well mornington as a railway station isn't really there anymore so that can't really count. what's wrong with a electric lilydale service running to healesville?

aren't comeng windows supposed to be reinforced and in that bulletproof as well. why would hand straps be a problem then and were they ever when they in the comengs pre refurbishment. it would seem th ...

what's with all the outrage with reconfiguring the seating layout and losing a few seats. yarra did it with the B2 trams as the apollo program and there were no cries of horror then so why now when co ...

that says it all that you haven't been there. sure trams are great and all but spottyrahr got it when he says trams aren't needed. i live in the west too. if the government turned around tomorrow and  ...

i think in line with both the anderson rd crossings being grade seperated forrest street which runs alongside the melton line and becomes tilburn rd after the fitzgerald road crossing should be widene ...

Ideally, St Albans would be sunk underground. It's only what the residents have wanted for a long time now... Rolling EyesLaughing
But that whole precinct has to be "fixed up"... I've been there at peak ti ...

I don't think there's anything wrong with running dedicated light rail services away from traffic be it on roads say along a median strip or like in the case of route 96/109 on a former railway line.  ...

Getting back on topic, well, attempting to, Melton's 11 level crossings aren't really to the extent that are on inner-suburban lines. I mean, Paynes Road is still a dirt road, as is Mt Cottrell Road.

i think melton is quoted at being 1.3 billion to electrify and duplicate. i don't think it's on the cards immediately because the growth in the rail corridor from deer park to melton isn't expected to ...

i reckon it's more that the city loop needs more rollingstock running within it and the entire system so it can run more frequencies. simply by having a huge increase in overall rollingstock then we c ...

what st albans doesn't have going for it is the lack of any commercial appeal that it could offer in giving up its space and moving underground. who would want to build on top of the station and devel ...

keeping liveries simple is the key to any good design. remember the orange/grey from vline- simple.

teacup livery- too much to look at- too many lines everywhere. i reckon a good colour combo of sor ...

running localised routes isn't a bad idea, but from watergardens to the city is a bit of a stretch

if you misuse public transport like using VLine as an express suburban service then you should be fined. other than trains going for melton or sunbury you should get done for it. its the same as ridin ...

forum members and the PTUA constantly quip about how the state government has and probably always will be partial to road funding over public transport. what these people have to realise is that despi ...

it's like how they turned the GPO on bourke street into a boutique shopping mall. ridiculous. doesn't melbourne have enough bars and restaurants bewfore we take into account how spencer street(i never ...

Yes it is still tangerine.  A few years back a saw a few people standing around and it had its amber light flashing.

Oh ok then. Well, I guess the flashing light still works then!  RazzLaughing Wonder ...

what we have to remember here is that dynon rd is a major heavy transport route and isn't really that wide. putting trams on it would probably mean having to widening it and perhaps having to seriousl ...

where'd you get that scrat, i wouldn't mind reading it

covering the jolimont rail precinct is better than sinking it which would probably cost double. though it seems strange that only a little while after that built that massive footbridge from biarrung  ...

A quick question. Could a double deck train like the 4D run on the line towards Pakenham?

I can't imagine there would be any serious clearance issues on the line. You would want it as a super expre ...
