also how does the person recharging pay for their power usage? How do you meter one car if there's a dozen on that stretch of road all charging?

That map doesn't mean much.  The majority of decent peak hour services run to the city and back as that's how the network is set up.  It would be interesting to compare it against total journeys durin ...

When was the line booked out of service?  I was at a customer a couple of weeks ago when the train went past (their office overlooks the Toolamba line only) The rice traffic is seasonal so can be expe ...

We went to a pub on the Great Alpine Road which had 5 Tesla recharging points outside.  The owner's were convinced to put them in about 18 months ago at their expense in return for special mentions in ...

from observation there appears to be an increasing demand for the passenger train to Bendigo (and one to shep as well would be ideal). A lot of retailers have closed and other business put people off  ...

Maybe we should be starting a rumour that A66 will be named "Dame Nellie Melba" as it's had so many comebacks! Smile
