Thanks for these great comparo photos. I think this is the best refurb on a Cityrail train I've ever seen. It really brightens up the ageing Tangaras. I particularly like the set-back near the doors.  ...

T4799 is still at Redfern (Eveleigh) although it takes a really keen eye to spot it as the number has been painted over after the car was repainted to cover graffiti. The old driving end is at the Red ...

Some great shots there Greg. Always good to see photos taken from an aspect us mere mortals can't access.

I don't know if this is a bit off topic but travelling between Clyde and Granville today, I n ...

We'll just remove the "Cheers Richard" from the url, and presto:

Good to see North End is used for something while there's no wheat running.

Thanks flying donkey. One thing I like about Railpage ...

G'day Mate,

I would be interested to see pics.

Cheers, Michael

Hi Michael

Finally back from Melbourne. Here's some photos I took of the CQBY container flat consist leaving Port Waratah on  ...

G'day Michael

Unfortunately I didn't get time to post the photos today and I'm off to Melbourne for a few days tomorrow. Will post when I get back on Monday.

Cheers

I was in Newcastle Wednesday 27 September and spent some time at the entry/exit to the Port Waratah coal loader. At about 10.00am I noted B61 (SSRR)/T385 & T387 (CFCLA)/GM10(SSRR) leaving Port Waratah ...

Can anyone explain how the second shipment of MZs was able to move from Carrington to Braemar/Thirlmere as an out of gauge load (original brake cylinders in place) while the first shipment required re ...

While sitting in a meeting in the Centennial Room of the Stamford Hotel at Mascot on Thursday 15 March (about 13:00), two Helgas (definitely 1437 and I think 1427) idled past the window outside (only  ...

I noticed a 4 car M set at Clyde this morning (about 8:40am) presumably doing the Carlingford shuttle. Didn't get to see which set number.

Thanks everyone. You've really got to call that forward  planning, considering how long it will be before the new EDI cars come online.

Does anyone know what all the earthwork activity beside the down main near Maintrain (Auburn) is all about? The old (and long out of use) down relief line between Auburn and Granville has been complet ...

Just got my copy of Motive Power. When I turned to p.56, I thought someone must have been having a lend. I appreciate that freight locos are essentially a practical beast but did they have to make it  ...

Westmead also has an ATOM at the Cash Only window. It tends to only be used at peak periods. I thought I'd been sold a Dud the first time I bought a ticket there. The tickets also have rounded corners ...

Sorry Sandown, didn't get back to the computer last night. As Matt reported, this is C3804 at Thirlmere. It was only partly restored when I last saw it. It looked OK externally but the interior was fa ...

For what it's worth, you can still see C3804 at the NSW Rail Transport Museum at Thirlmere.

I understand that the D57s were out of gauge in width for the Short North but does anyone know exactly how wide they were. Were they wider than the standard max. width for NSW country lines of 9'9"? I ...

As a daily commuter between Westmead and Wynyard (since September 1995), in all honesty I'd have to say the daily haul is generally more pleasant now than it was 11 years ago. Having said that, things ...

Don't know if anybody on this thread knows it but there's a thread titled 'LVRF NOHABS' under 'Locomotives and Rolling Stock' that's been running since January 2005. The Youtube videos were posted the ...

No need to apologise for the photo quality nosecone. At least you were there and had a camera handy. I've gotta admit, the 'Helga' is starting to grow on me.

Thanks Gwiwer. I was never sure if it'd be Kooly-ANN-obbing or KOOL-ya-  nnobbing and was always too afraid to ask. Either way, as you say, gotta be in the top ten weird place names. I used to live in ...

I recall back in the 1980s travelling on the Prospector through a town called Koolyannobbing (WA, that is). Unfortunatelly, I was asleep at the time and missed the conductor's station announcement so  ...

I'd agree with nadnerb that as many X15 and X25 turnouts should be replaced with high speed tangential turnouts. It amazes me that Railcorp often replaces old turnouts but usually doesn't change the g ...

I noticed an 8 car M set east bound in Platform 1 at Westmead station at about 7:15pm tonight. I didn't get a chance to see which sets. I assumed it must have been something to do with the timetable s ...
