Re: [May 09] AdMet Observations

Looks like now when going past Scania this evening that there seems to be around 8 new admet livered scania's waiting to be delivered to Southlink I am guessing. There might be a few more then this number but not sure.

Re: Locos at National Rail Museum, Adelaide

Yes it is the ETSA loco. Also you must of been there early last year as around middle to late last year we actually did a huge shunt of everything down there and changed where locos, carriages etc are now placed for people to view and access.

I asked this question awhile ago and got told it is to say that the bus is fitted with a 2-way radio.

Re: [Feb 09] AdMet Observations

If they were ment for Southlink then wouldn't they have not been fitted with the dome light? Sounds like they will be going to Torrens if they have all been fitted with the dome light and that means more buses for the O-Bahn and maybe some soon to be retirements down the line?

Re: Adelaide 2000 Class Railcar HO Model

Well if its scrapped a few people would be owed refunds. No one money has been exchanged with the person doing this model at all. Payment are made once the model is built. The person doing has been busy with other things and has had a few family things to deal with as well. I will email him and see...

Great photo there by your friend of the beast. Last time I saw dumbo was in Grenfell St doing a recovery. I still reckon it should allways stay up at St Agnes and not down at Mile End.
