Went through the Brighton Rd crossing on Saturday and no sparks up.

Went through again on Sunday and the feed (or whatever you call it) was installed along the masts.

New signals/gantries are now popping up over the line latest one I noticed was at Goodwood station and they are beginning to install the holdings for the cantilever arms from Brighton to Oaklands. Hove, Warradale and Oaklands appear to be next in the wiring fireline expecting to see these 3 areas with wiring up within the next month

Ryan, if you read the few posts preceeding the one of mine you quoted, you'll see we were refering to the re-opening of the Victoria Street level crossing to road users

A BIG THANK YOU to all who have been providing photos and information on the rebuilding from a near crippled state to the brand spanking new system you will have.

Well we hope it is brand spanking new system, but this is Adelaide Metro we are talking about here, so don't hold your breath. LaughingLaughing

Bringing it forward into the 20th century might be more than enough change to deal with at one time.

Reading postings here is quite amusing.

On one hand you have the bright eyed optimists who see the job as only a month away.

On the other some seasoned old veterans, who have seen it all before and can remember the days when keeping trains running was important, a matter of professional honour. Work was done in the period 0100 to 1100 on Sunday morning. We remember weed free clean ballast, clear cesses and regular and routine repacking. For us this present process has been abysmal and an extremely poor reflection on a profession of which some of us are still active members. We look at the chaotic rate of progress of the works*, the late starting of the resignalling and now the never-never delivery of the EMUs and scratch our collective heads.

*I exclude the Goodwood Underpass from that description, the way it has been done is exemplary in my observation, Victoria St crossing signals being an exception and most likely out of the control of that project.

We had a 20th century railway until the powers that should have been let it rot. Now they want a pat on the back for bringing it back to only slightly better
