The "reef" discovered 10 or so years ago was much further south in the gulf, and was a seamount which had gone undiscovered due to the grid nature of bathymetric surveys. They happened to move the gri ...

That's a theory, but I don't think it's based on fact. Everyone knew, during the last heatwave, that the price offered by the generators was going to spike. The retailers knew they were going to be hi ...

Further to Bogong's history, I remember reading that the people of Penola did petition the South Australian Government to build them a railway to the port of Robe, because Naracoorte had one to the po ...

As I recall, there is a major grain transfer facility at Frances, but as we all know there has been no rail service there since the standard gauge went through on the mainline.

Short lines in the US (G&W included) actively seek out work, maybe GWA did that here, I didn't notice it. It looked like they saw a quick buck to be made, with a Government that really had no idea abo ...

Many struggling branch lines in the US are sold off to small companies who run them at a small profit, many hand-in-hand with the state or local government, for the simple reason that it keeps that fr ...

I seem to recall that in order to be defined as a 'town' in Australia, there has to be a hotel. Without a hotel, the place is a locality.

[quote="GT46C-ACe"]There is no order, as has been said already (even on this page) the PHs being built are demonstators that will test with Aurizon and PN and whoever else wants to try them in an effo ...

Thanks for that JMT. So are these being built here for Freightliner, PN, GWA, QR, CFCLA? I imagine they're only being built because someone has put in an order?

Are the PH class being built for any specific purpose? Any specs available?

Posted 24 Sep 2013 08:50 in Locomotives and Rolling Stock by rhino

It looks like they have used the UK PH37 hood drawings which need to fit a much smaller loading gauge.

Ian, I wouldn't mind betting that when the "freeway" gets built in this area, it is in a trench, in line with the Gallipoli Underpass, and will pass under the tramline to the west of the current overp ...

I would be more inclined to leave it as a heavy rail service in case there's ever an extension to Mt Barker in the future.

I understand there is a Mushroom Farm in the old tunnel complex

I believe there is also wine storage in one of them (locked, of course)

Thanks Neill, I'll try to have a look for it next time I'm around there.

What about reinstating the old viaduct for the light rail route?   Double track between the tunnels and serve the top part of Panorama.
