Prime Ministers, Premiers and Ministers are really only figure heads. They have a broad idea and pass it onto the public service who does all the real work regardless of who is in power. Yes, it is th ...

We never had a problem with AP here until earlier this year. I’ve had a fair few ‘you weren’t home when we called past’ cards in the last ten years and all except maybe one or two I wasn’t a ...

[quote=simstrain]Some people on here really don't appreciate how loud some of these loco's can be climbing in and out of Sydney. It isn't music to everyone's ears and when the sound reverbs around the ...

The other positive side effect of Zig Zag using 1067mm was that they were able to acquire a fleet of relatively modern locomotives with good boilers (934 and 218A were the only ex QR locos on the rost ...

Has a6et figures out yet that the NSW had one standard five chime design and that it only varied in the material used to construct the bell? “36, 38, 60 class whistle”. They’re all fundamentally ...

1109 onwards were never owned by Qube. They were built by NRE on speculation of an additional sale of four units and have always remained the property of NRE. Qube’s 1101 to 1108 never proved reliab ...

Dthead,

To be honest, I noticed a lack of crowds in general but I really noticed a lack of general public attendees. I only remember passing one mother with a pram. Any other kids or partners were  ...

As far as I’m aware the fires have been burning on the Ebor side of Dorrigo. The line runs towards the coast.

A bit like the Tenterfield fires though; it’s hard to impact on a railway that retu ...

Don’t get me wrong, I like Watco. They’re a business though and they’ve proven so far they’re not an El Zorro type doing whatever backyard train people want run. In Queensland, all they have f ...
