Yep, I have the same problem, I've got hundreds of good photos on Photobucket which they won't let me use anymore. But I don't have a spare day to labouriously transfer them to a different site like Flickr.

Is there any way I can do a simple job lot transfer of all my files?
Bogong
PB will let you store them, they just want a ransom to allow you to share the links.

You mean to say that you uploaded them all to PB and didn't keep a backup? There was a hosting site (forget its name now) that went under some years ago and those who had their photos there had no way of retrieving them.



Anyway, simple answer, download them all from PB to your Computer (go and have dinner/sleep etc while that is happening, depending on D/L speed). Then upload them to your chosen hosting site. Keep a backup - just in case.

Even if it was possible to send them direct from PB to another site, PB would consider that to be file sharing, so no, you have to download them.

Locomotives 852 and 4836 were trucked into Avoca yesterday to commence ballast train duties on the eastern section of the Maryborough - Ararat line.  The line is still incomplete between Avoca and Ararat necessitating this move.  It'll help with trying to get the line open by January 1.  Qube Ballast train and other works trains are busy completing the Western section.

I believe it's first time a train has been at Avoca since early 2005 or thereabouts.

Must be some urgency being applied then if they couldn't wait for the 'gap' to be closed.


Presumably a number of ballast hoppers have been (or will be) trucked in as well. I gather the ballast will be trucked in to a stockpile somewhere and then loaded into the hoppers.


The locals at Avoca must be beside themselves, no trains for 12 years or so, now trains arriving by truck before the real thing resumes, even if its just a work train.

I suppose these locos will be running into Maryborough and then north?

Hi Group,

I take It that Others have Pictures of the work being done but are not able to post them on this Site or don't have access to Flicker etc. I don't have Access to F B so Not Sure what is posted  there

Tnx,
Operater,

I see in the Victorian Rail "News" section we appear to be back to the problem of gunzel's views: "Is the Mildura Standardisation Project doomed?" being posted without attribution, as though the gunzel's views are "news", the poster must be a fan of the Don's fake news agenda. For the web masters, I believe the news section should only include items from accredited media organisations and that the posts should be properly attributed, linked and the details of the poster included in the attribution. Without such information and standards, the reliability, credibility and trustworthiness of Railpage "News" is questionable which reflects badly on Railpage.

Cheers,

Totally agree Hendo.   I recently had one of my Railpage posts also turned into "news" which I was not very impressed at all about.   I do post from time to time REAL news sourced from transport journals etc and always fully reference the source.

I note that the so called "news" article has been updated with a link to a users account claiming that that user posted this item of "news". Having looked at the link, it doesn't appear on that users list of posts. Trainplanner, I suggest that if the post wasn't yours you need to have some words with the administrators.

Agreed and hopefully that would stop the RRA's "Press Releases" being posted as News as well/

Don't look too closely at the quality of the track!

yes, poor quality 'Standard gauge' (they are probably going to clean it up)

It'll look much better after Ballast and Tamper.

I have just had a look at the yard in Donald.   The past couple of weeks they have been placing new points/turnouts at either end of the yard and loop.   At this stage it appears the only line Donald may lose is the silo siding in the main yard.   That means that we will be left with the main line, 3 x station loops + the small loop under the gantry crane for loading containers.

What about that grain siding that comes off the crossing loop and goes past that old freezing works.

Graincorp have purchased the land there to put in several new bunkers, so those tracks will also remain.

Kooka's cookies, those butter biscuits you get in motel rooms etc, have to build a new factory as that is where the new bunkers are going.

The split timber sleeper in the 7th image doesn't inspire confidence for longevity.

How many other split sleepers have been used in the project Question
