[url=/user/33950][b]@Gman_86[/b] It might avoid those costs, however the flight uses a lot more fuel. It all depends on whether the cost of the extra fuel exceeds the savings associated with not havin ...

[url=/user/71828][b]@mejhammers1[/b] The Class 172s used on the Overground were replaced due to lack of capacity, not design life. They are still in operation in the west Midlands.

Beech Forest?

Meeting online isn't always the best option, particularly if you're going for a holiday or to visit family.

Except that traffic lights only hold traffic for a minute or so each time, whereas for a level crossing it is a complete unknown.

I can see such flights being very popular, particularly among business people (where time is of the essence) and people concerned about passing through a third country post-COVID.

Avon River bridge at Sale?

Cobram?

If Metro 2 gets built I expect Clifton Hill station would get 2 underground platforms for the Mernda line, leaving the existing platforms for the Hurstbridge line.

Meaning you wouldn't need the con ...

Agreed. It looks like they've done this to allow the outbound platform to be converted into an island.

It doesn't matter how large the population of a town is. What matters is the demand going from A to B. After all, why provide a service that doesn't get used?

Benalla?

Springhurst?

Would they have started on that already in the completed sections of tunnel?

Yeah...no. More capacity - yes; higher speed running - no. That would be useless for what is currently a sub-2hr journey.

[quote=cityrail-rulez]Hi guy's, just a quick update!

So far, I had to fix a computer issue as Windows 10 version 20H2 had not installed correctly which caused regular crashing and failing to restar ...

I think the ideal location for a maintenance facility on the North East line would be Seymour as it could also service the BG fleet used for Seymour/Shepparton runs.

I would argue the divide is the exact reverse:

Gordon?

You could build a servicing facility at Traralgon for the isolated fleet...but that would require effort.
