I'm going to ask the question that'll probably result in a whole hell of a lot of Disagrees being issued.

For all this talk about ordering an Electric Locomotive type when electrifying, why  ...

Melton's a suburban area. Why segregate just because the trains spew out fumes, not sparks? Smile

There's a reason I've been calling for Quad Track tunnels for all these years!

Too late for that now.  Jacinta has much egg on her face.  These times remind me of the last days of Kosky as minister, head in the sand.

Funny thing is, I always thought the idea of buying second hand stock would be politically popular.

Push the fact they were gotten dirt cheap, and that they work properly.

What if gauge changeable sleepers were provided. Most of the line is in need of heavy rehabilitation anyway, may's well take the chance to put in gauge changeable sleepers.
