Are there any movements timetabled to use the crossovers between the up Bankstown and the down Goods line to Enfield either side of Campsie Station? Obviously nothing electric in the up direction give ...

I went to Ungarie central school and in my last year a railway carriage was delivered to the school in order to become a classroom. I have a hazy recollection of it being delivered by rail and sitting ...

Some interesting ideas, but I think like a few people I'll believe it when i can rock up to Sydenham and wait at most 3 minutes for my tube to Milsons Point.

Few thoughts

I find it interesting tha ...

I've noticed that on the southern side of the Main West overbridge, there is what looks like a brick abutment for an additional bridge span over the goods line. Were there plans once for additional tr ...

The environmental assessment for the extension is now available for the Planning NSW website [url=http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=4097]here.

The GHD study for the Dulwich Hill extension has been released and posted to the NSW Department of Transport website

Transit Australia’s news for November states that the tender for new trams, I assume meaning the Flexities, has been officially cancelled. I guess an email to the DTEI could confirm this?

Thanks Pressman, I did not realise the platforms were right up against the intersection.

Sorry diskiller I was a bit unclear in my question. I understand the centre terminating track will have a platform face on either side and there will have to be facing and trailing crossovers on the d ...

Is there any word on the track arrangements at the future 3 platform stop at West Terrace? Will the centre platform  be a simple dead end shunt for  trams coming from the east or is something allowing ...

Thanks Warks for alerting me to that. Apparently, trams travelled between Annandale and Rozelle depot via a narrow right of way which passed Johnston Street. Whereabouts did this branch from Question.

A Countrylink OSM is piloting the train there and back with x2 Sydney Drivers in attendance.

Is this because there is probably few Countrylink drivers these days both qualified for the XPT and with ...

Just as an aside Noel Reed has posted an amazing colour photo he took of an AEC railmotor near Fawkner. Click on the link below and then search the Trams Down Under photo archive for AEC.

The Office of Transport Safety Investigations has released an interim factual statement on the runaway wagon through Temora on the 28th of July.

Have there been any serious engineering studies into improving the current alinement without long tunnels or massive viaducts? If we take the benchmark of 55’ for an express bus to make the Lithgow- ...

Thanks for the replies everyone. 2001 that's  a fair enough point with the practical difficulties in running a mixed-mode operation on the OBahn. The issue of the different braking performance between ...

What is the structure or loading gauge of the OBahn? There are many examples of light rail running through low profile tunnels throughout the world (Boston Green Line etc). Is the clearance between bu ...

Nikki Webster, of  Sydney Olympics fame, has released a new single. The relevance to this forum being that the video was shot in Rozelle depot. The trams are shown fleetingly in the tracking shots and ...

I have also wondered about the platform arrangement at town hall for changing between the ESR and the North Shore line. Especially since Dr Bradfield gave such careful thought to the flow of passenger ...

Sorry everyone, just meant to be a sly comment on how the artist of the render has seemingly ripped and dropped a Skoda 16T onto the new overpass. The perils of trying to place your tough firmly in yo ...

Wow. Skoda must be pleased with Adelaide purchasing some 13/14/16T class trams   Laughing
