As for V/line rolling stock - perhaps they're going to hang on to the H and N-sets a bit longer than originally anticipated, along with playing catch-up on V/Los?

There are 9 6-car H ...

That’s true, Shunter, but on the other hand they’re very obvious candidates for upgrade precisely because they have barely-adequate “regional” facilities serving quasi-suburban traffic.

Th ...

Peter Parker over at Melbourne On Transit emailed the Premier’s office and got some more detail on the rail upgrades. The stations are

Richard Berry (I am a graduate of Melbourne Uni) was a mathematician I believe who has a building named after him on campus.

Yes, although he had a far less attractive side line a ...

Just a few minor corrections and additions to [url=/user/22117][b]@historian[/b]’s post (to whom I mean no disrespect):

The original basement access was not to what is now the CAE building, but t ...

It’d be amusing if they went to a weekend timetable across the board and Echuca got a second daily return to Melbourne semi-permanently!

Given half the fleet will still have manual doors it’s a bit of a moot point anyway as far as social distancing measures are concerned.

I did devise a method of opening the Comeng doors with my  ...

This strange ahistorical thought bubble aside, I’d remind the assembled that particular reservation is preserved for a future connection between the Broadmeadows goods lines and the West Werribee li ...

Considering that by the time the South Australian border restrictions are fully lifted, the other way between Adelaide and Melbourne might be a nationalised Qantas running a handful of services at ess ...

For goodness sake. Councils under administration are not “caretaker” in the same sense as the state government is the month before the election, or say when a Prime Minister is appointed as an int ...

It exists. But I’m not going to tell you when it is, because the only time people like you ask is around International Women’s Day. Why could that be, I wonder?

This whole thread is a bit silly. The tracks were rooted. There’s no state government or opposition hints, even, at restoring passenger or freight service beyond Clyde. So the council is absolutely  ...

They don’t look like piles but I guess they could be.

The machine in the picture is a pile driver, so unless they are working multiple jobs in the gig economy these days,  ...

I’m truly bewildered by what you consider to be “much happening” if driving piles for the new bridge doesn’t count.

Presumably all dead-end committees will be rebranded as working groups in the not too distant future to remind us everything the government is doing for us.

Short warning time on the East line at one of the crossings, apparently. Could be contamination or profile related.

They’re not going to convert Ballarat-Ararat to SG any time soon – much as I’d like them to – so Maryborough-Ararat would still get used for moves to and from the Adelaide direction.

Even  ...

At the end of the day I think trying to fit services into neat categories is a bit of a fool’s errand. There are multiple continua – top speed, number of stops, service frequency, stock type – w ...

Did anyone actually read the article? It’s not a “great initiative by the people of Maryborough”, it’s that muppet Noel Laidlaw (of Rail Revival Alliance fame) trying to get his head in the lo ...

Exactly the same thing’s happening in NSW. It’s a symptom of a broader malaise. A couple of decades deskilling and outsourcing the public service has left both governments in a position where they ...

How the two females posing as ministers...


Whatever is at the root of V/Line’s problems, suggesting it’s related to the gender of the ministers is very poor form.

Ah yes, run the life-expired train already shot to bits 24 hours away from its home base on two disastrously unreliable railways on an extremely marginal route, requiring totally new driver training a ...

For what it’s worth I’m pretty confident these renewals are coming out of V/Line’s maintenance budget rather than RPV’s project budget. There’s no mention of any track improvement south of B ...

Congratulations are in order for all by the way, 100 pages now, multiple spin off threads, and we’ve still only managed to do a third of the project and botch it completely.

My 2020 prediction i ...

For years and years NSW station staff have had access to precise train position information fed from Control. Once on a terminal in the station office and now on iPads. The mind boggles that we haven ...
