Re: Ferry Observations 2020

Haven't seen this mentioned before. But is there an empty space in your water feature or pool?

Why not pick up the old Woolwich pontoon

Re: Surfside Buslines

Ex Bus 596 has been sold off & going by the couple of Tik Tok videos. I'm assuming it's a motorhome conversion.

One of the biggest comments in the first video is that the bus was sold in full Translink livery.

Re: Ferry Observations 2020

The Railways are worried about their jobs. But wouldn't the Emerald MkII actually result in job losses? First up there'd be less staff on the ferries. But less staff would be required at CQ & Manly, they'd only be required at one level. Unless they're going to deploy staff on bridge watch on the Par...

Re: Light rail gets the green light: stage 1 UNSW to CBD

Um, don't they block off roads like George St with cement barriers to stop terrorists driving through the crowds? Maybe another option could be to line trams up along George St. Down side L2, up side L3. Just fill a tram & go. There is 11 months of planning (you'd want the plan locked in by December...

Gungahlin Stop in Canberra was looking like the track was just going to end. Eventually a buffer thing was installed, this'll probably happen in Sydney eventually.

While the tram was being highlighted as not cutting Newcastle in 2 with level crossings. For 10+ minutes around 12:15pm, only Scott/Hunter Streets had green lights. With no trams running either.

Re: New Country Trains

Looks like this will see the end of loco-hauled trains, with XPT replacements being DERCs. If Dubbo was to be the maintenance base solely for XPT replacements, it would be fairly easy to roster workings to get a regular turnover through the depot. But if all the order is to be maintained there, it ...

130* (forget the last number but it was a smaller than a CB60/80) was spotted on a low loader heading up the Hume Highway near the NSW Southern Highlands tonight heading north.

No idea where it was heading but do wonder if it's Queensland bound.
