Good point Mej, much of what you say makes a good deal of sense.

But I still reckon that we have to be tolerant of minority opinions, so long as they are politely expressed. Here's an analogy compa ...

Please excuse me if I'm incorrect here, but didn't God create Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve?
Oh goodie another religious ratbag.

[quote=Valvegear]Bogong, the Labour Party belongs in Britain.

I am staggered at the number of people who profess an interest in Australian politics and do not know that we have a [b]Labor[/b] Party. ...

Fair enough amb, but my main point is that the North Williamstown land is massively valuable. If the value of the land in 2020 is just a fraction of my guestimate of $100+ million, that easily pays fo ...

Thanks for the thoughtful response amb. I guess I was envisioning a transport museum with interactive displays and giant (but cheap) agricultural sheds out the back housing big stuff like trains, buse ...

The stereotype I grew up with in country Victoria was that the ALP had the very rich professional class, bureaucrats, teachers and the battler class as supporters, Plus of course, the unions.

Stooge, I looked it up.

From the river entrance to Westgate Bridge, the speed limit has been decreased from 10 knots to 8 knots.

Between Westgate and Bolte the speed is now 6 knots (previously 5 ...

Mej, regardless of whether it was "a butt covering exercise" to placate the minority Conservative Faction of the Liberal Party (and I reckon it probably was), it worked and we have established a relat ...

I agree with you Valvegear, but only if you agree that all MPs who disregarded the votes of their constituents should be punished (with some leeway if the vote in their electorate was fairly close).

What is the actual speed on the Yarra for all vessels ?

Exactly TOQ, that's the reason they never built a railway to serve towns on Port Phillip south of Mornington. Places like Dromana, Rosebud and Portsea were all served by ferry. Then cars became popula ...

[quote=freightgate]Good thoughts bogong but as soon has you introduce two forms of mode of transport your transit time increases.

How would passengers get to a proposed terminal in Geelong ? Car o ...

No, but this postal survey method would be a great way to resolve other important issues tha ...

Paul Little, the squillionaire property developer and former CEO of both Toll Holdings and Essendon footy club is planning to introduce a Geelong to Melbourne ferry service. He currently runs the Port ...

I think the postal survey was a good thing. It resolved an issue that had been in political deadlock (or in the "too hard basket") for both political teams for almost a decade. It had degenerated to s ...

Well the Liberals are talking about running semi-dead in Green leaning seats to save their resources (both money and volunteers) for marginal seats where they are competing against the ALP. The Libs a ...

Well not quite yet. First it has to be approved by the Governor-General and then it has to be published in the Government Gazette.

So it's okay for other people to use nicknames like G-town, BrisVegas and for Brenton to call his home town "The Maine" (although as a native of that town I'm not keen on it).

But Dan isn't allowed ...

The point is that the port area near the mouth of the Yarra is approaching its maximum capacity. There's another problem that big container ships have such deep drafts that some can't even enter Port  ...

Velocity sets will be in high demand for the foreseeable future, while Sprinters will see a gradual reduction in usage. The Velocity sets that operate to Maryborough are rarely crowded, so running S.G ...

We all know that Gippsland trains are regularly stuck behind slow suburban services, so there is a need for a third track (at least) beyond Caulfield to allow Gippsland services to express through alm ...

Rather than pathetically beg "the Powers That Be" for a new location for mainline preserved train operations, perhaps it's better to be proactive and approach them with an "everybody wins" solution.

Simstrain. Vacant residential land in that area costs a minimum of $5,000 per square metre, land on a shopping strip even more. So even IF there is vacant land nearby (and that is unlikely), a small p ...
