Brian,What proposed uses would you envisage that would recoup even a fraction of the costs involved with restoring the station precinct in a somewhat reasonable amount of time? Keeping in mind that th ...

D3621,The train was delayed leaving Maldon in the morning, and did not run to time. A diesel was substituted for the second train.

Goulburn?

Very enjoyable weekend, wasn't planning an overnight stay in Wagga but thats how it happened. Good crowds, fine weather made for a very pleasant and different weekend experience.

JT, what's your source on this one? Not trying to put you down but you have made some very obvious predictions like this before,  would be interested to know where your information is cooking from.

I've got the time off, going to come have a look on the Saturday morning. Hoping to see some of you there!

Dates?

Old loops are being retained, with new loops being installed at Inverleigh, Tooli and Westmere (Firey Creek). 

Ha, awesome! Always love a good zombie apocalypse discussion. Personally, I'd start by fortifying a Bunnings Warehouse as best I could and eventually aim to move out of the city.

It makes one wonder if it would be possible to have a steam driven screw, as seen on many full size locos? A flexible steam hose through to the tender, a small size piston, feed through a conveyor and ...

Thread has relevance to the forum, everyone is getting along fine. I see no problems Smile

First car was a 1993 EB Falcon, on LPG. Very reliable car, and cheap to run for a young lad like myself. Nothing wrong with it when I sold it, just wanted a newer car and had the money to do so. Curre ...

Understandable, but with a car being wiped out, it is fair to assume that it would be distressing for all involved. However, I do apologise for coming across a little strong.

Lustychant,Apparently someone has been killed after a collision between car and freight train. A little bit of decorum, please.

I can use it so why cant you?Because it's SH%^TT, it's stupid and it sucks more than a teenage girl on her boyfriend.Ok guys, if we're gonna throw mud lets at least keep it to a mature and/or amusing  ...

I was under the impression it was GWU on the intermodal and GWA on the Wirrida Ore trains? As it is, GWUs are already working the Darwin services, they are not just limited to grain work.

JT,Footplate prices are set at what the operator feels is reasonable, to cover insurance, make a small profit, etc. What do the operators get in return for the cost of maintaining extra rollingstock ( ...
