Re: Best locations for rail photography?

I know that freighters have "codes" or whatever they're called. The ones I know of are 9391: North Geelong to Oaklands (correct?) 9081 & 9086: Melbourne (Dynon) to Deniliquin and back aka the rice train 9351 & 9352: Melbourne (Dynon) to Tocumwal and back 9461 & 9462: Melbourne (Dynon) to Maryvale p...

Re: Victorian Rail & Tram Observations January to June 2013

Train on platform 1 derailed. 2 cars off: http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/long-delays-after-train-derails-20130528-2n93q.html Metro says the driver is ok. I'm guessing by the message it was an empty train: Due to a derailed train at Caulfield, train services may be delayed by 20 minutes. There we...

Will the new seat covers be rolled out onto the Alstom Comengs? Some of them are looking very worn out.
Not at the moment, the new seat covers are a trial on only 831M-832M

Grentura 688 (Volvo B7RLE, Volgren CR228L) has entered service, I rode on 688 today on the Sandringham College school special.

Also, Moorabbin has now also had its desto files changed to Ventura standard.

Re: [TheAge] The End of Route 509, Hope Street Bus Line

Very disappointing to see this happening, the service beats SmartBus frequencies on a weekend! Somehow, overall I think the weekend service on every SmartBus route beats the 509's weekend offering which has buses running on Saturday only, with the first one at 8am and the last at 1pm. Still not as ...

Re: 901 On McDonald's Rd South Morang

A broady driver was bashed on Thursday night and a female Kastoria driver was robbed at knifepoint on friday night. This has to stop. Yes, this is an outrage. The bus driver is just 'too exposed'. Taxi cabs are getting their cages, so where else do these nasties have to go. The only place left for ...

The only true reason behind the no tours issue is, because they where forced to stop. They did not choose to stop.

They had to do.....
