Blackwood Railway Station?

 
  Sojourner Train Controller

My brother showed me some pictures of a older style train carriage that has been hauled up alongside the Blackwood Railway Station. Clearly it looks like it is having some painting work being done to it. Wondering if anyone knows what the future plans are for it and if it is to be used as shop or something along those lines?

GSR used the million dollars from the SA Government to purchase a new DMU to operate the Overland service. Having crunched the numbers on future PAX loadings they noticed no need for the MU, so purchased only one. You'll note this is not a double ended car, if you want to ride it, be on the first trip, it's not coming back...

It's a 300 class Redhen Railcar ex Barossa Junction (B&B accommodation). Due to be joined at Blackwood by a 400 class Redhen sometime in the near future. Assume that this is the beginnings of a private residence, the land they're on also includes the water tower.

this thread as already it has alerted the local idiots to attend and they mentioned it when being grilled by sapol......
trainweld
smeg! Better go and have a chat to the folks at Facebook, it was posted there before here... The local idiots can see the thing from public land! Deleting this thread will not conceal the cars anymore than painting them in high-viz.

anyone caught trespassing will be restrained until Sapol are in attendance as it is private property.

You should be aware (whilst I am no supporter of trespassing people) that this is not what South Australian legislation allows owners of private property to do. I am not going to post how trespass actually works, because that WILL give people ideas...

A good way of describing anyone who puts an old railway carriage right next to a well-used public footpath without any fencing, puts photos on a social networking site used by over one in every six human beings and then thinks that removing a post about it on Railpage is going to make the difference between it being vandalised or not.

I suggest that everyone should just check before posting photos & make sure they get the facts straight before speculating on a public forum. Also if you are all so negative please focus your energy elsewhere, this has been a long drawn out project PRIVATELY FUNDED and is by no means finished, Rome wasn't built in a day and things take time and co-ordination.

None of you would be happy if I took photos of your workshop/carport and post them around everywhere just because I could see it from the street, same expectation to not do things like that here. A simple "hey is it ok to do this?" would suffice

The removal was the request of the attending SAPOL officer after speaking with some suspects.

You've come to the wrong place to carry on like that matey, this is a pro-photography site.

Wrong! Photography in public places is a key component of being a free (okay, free-ish these days) country.

If you've got something you don't want others to see (and photograph) then don't put it where people (or Google Maps) can legally see it. It's a simple case of personal responsibility, although I've been led to believe that blaming others is more fashionable these days.

The police officer in question needs to be demoted and suspended until they have completed remedial training.

The only correct response to any police officer attempting to restrict photography is to politely decline, then take their name and serial number so you can report them to the Police Complaints Authority. Their job is to catch criminals, not to stick their noses in legal private business.

Suspects of what?

People can't see into my shed from the street, it's in the back yard, my workshop is in the carport, but it has these things called walls and roller doors. It you didn't want someone to see your train from the footpath perhaps some advice might have been to build the shed first, or at least fence it... What is on public display is on public display the fact that it might be private property is of little consequence. Perhaps it is you that should do some research and learn some facts?

Not true... The role of the Police is to subjugate the populace in order to criminalise all behaviours in favour of the states income stream. Why catch criminals, when they can just claim your a criminal...

Generally yes, but taking a photo is hardly grafiti.

A second carriage has now arrived and temporary fencing has been installed.

This was posted on FB a day or two ago, but that aside, you are really going to be off trainweld's Christmas card list now.
