Not bad, got 65%Thanks for the feedback 8077 and steve_w_1990.
I don't know if I agree with the answer to number 17 though. (What two locations did electric services start running in 1991).
As far as I was aware, the first use of Electric Railcars on the Perth network in passenger service was the Royal Show between Perth and the Showgrounds in 1991, but I could be wrong.
Fair enough, thanks for the response.The book Marble Bar to Mandurah: a history of passenger rail services in Western Australia, by Geoffrey Higham, Rail Heritage WA, Perth, 2007, p. 235, provides more information:
I'm not quite up to date on how the electrification in Perth unfolded, as I was barely 11 months old in October 1991, and I didn't arrive in Perth until May 2012, so most of the information I've got I either got of Wikipedia, talked with people who were familiar with the topic, or I've taken an educated guess to fill in the blanks.
I was always under the impression that regular electric services on all three heritage lines started at the same time. I know that electric railcars, diesel railcars and loco hauled trains ran in conjunction until about 1993, which I'm assuming was when the last of the 43 A series trains were delivered and commissioned.
The Joondalup line didn't come online until 1992 I believe. There is a photo floating around of a diesel railcar on the Joondalup line, however, weather they ever operated up there in regular service in the beginning I don't know.
Thanks for taking the time to put these quizzes together, they do provide a good bit of entertainment and have proven that I can make a fairly good educated guess from time to time! (There's also been a few trick questions that have caught me out as well!)
