MOD EDIT: Added the rules ย here where everyone can find them. - KRviator

[rules]
72hrs is the maximum amount of time one has to confirm the correct location of the photograph. I'm sure you all have lives away from the computer rather than sitting at one eagerly awaiting the answer.

48hrs is the maximum amount of time the winner has to post up a new photograph, or declare open floor or else it will be declared Open Floor.

REGARDLESS... no one declares open floor except the winner of the previous photo, or a Moderator in exceptional circumstances.

REGARDLESS... no one guessing a location of a photo self-determines they have won it, even if the photo is obvious, and declares open floor or posts a new photo. This is extremely poor form, and has been done multiple times, and re-offenders will be warned. [/rules]

[EDIT="KRviator"]Further to what has been noted above, here's one more:

Do not post photo's of nothing more than a signal head, point machine, station seat or anything else that does not have at least some kind of identifying feature in the photo.

Ta. And enjoy the comp.[/edit]


Well some said yes, some said no, I figured I'd start er' up and let her go.
If you don't like it ignore it, if you do come and join in Wink

The Rules are as usual with the boundaries being the Cityrail Network, if the station name is on the Cityrail Network Map as at http://www.cityrail.info then its alright.

An easy one to start off play.

The photo is taken on the footbridge at Lidcombe (near the ticket barriers), looking West. On the LHS, we have the new turnback being constructed and the junction for two tracks curving towards Berala. The big green ugly thing is on the down main heading towards Auburn.

Bwana has it with Lidcombe, as does Neety, I'll leave it to you two to decide.

Neety, you need to look beyond the photo.

Maybe it's reflected in the glass?

Its not the Sprint platform Wink

The Sprint Platform is behind me, this shot was of 3801+3830 heading to the ZZR. It was taken from tinted glass which is why it is a tad dark.

It's platforms 1 and 2 (up and down Main) at Lidcombe, with the tracks from platforms 3 and 4 (up and down Suburban) on the left. ย In the distance can be seen the two tracks that turn out to Bankstown/South via Regents Park.

OK in the spirit of this new forum, I was gong to have an OSCar or Lemon so everyone could go "Oooooooohhhhhhhh, woooooooooow, the three billionth OSCar to be shown on RP, and who'd have ever thought, it looks exactly like the other 2,999,999,999".

I am, however, a lazy bastard - apart from not needing to have any identifying markers removed, this one will also do as my contribution to the weather pics thread:

I'm thinking that it's somewhere on the East Hills line, so I'll say Panania, although I can't recall that much foliage on either side of the line... Confused

Just a clarifying question - when we talk "Sydney Suburban", do we mean to the extents of Helensburgh, Macarthur, Cowan, Richmond, Emu Plains etc, or is it extended to Newcastle, Bomaderry, Goulburn (or Moss Vale) and Lithgow??

And Skindog takes it with what seems to have been fluke of the year. Taken from the Carson Street bridge.

Bwana - no fluke mate...simply local knowledge and a little bit of deduction Wink

BTW, no one seems to have answered my question re: the extent of "Sydney Suburban"...Confused

I'd say just use your own discretion. Suburban would probably be limited to Helensburgh, Cowan, Macarthur, etc., but anything involving Goulburn that is CityRail-related would probably also be acceptable.

We'll see how things pan out in the next few weeks anyway, I'd imagine, but as I said, use your own discretion and you should be fine Smile

As for the pic, I'll stab wildly and ask, is it Granville?
