As has been said we have gone through all of this before.  We know it takes money and that was the limiting factor but TAKE NOTE OF THIS>   ARTC very carefully considered two options for the NE upgrad ...

That's correct.  Was initially Aurizon but PN has had it for quite sometime.

Monash's institute has and continues to do work all over the world including places like Dubai and the north west of WA in addition to that stated above.  They have an excellent reputation .  HOWEVER! ...

Had to say I told u so BUT!!!!   There is nothing easy about breaking into new territory and in the case of Wagga both PN (and QUBE nearby) are far better placed to serve this terminal because they ha ...

Thanks for the updates.   Let's hope all of Aurizon's business gets picked up by the other 2 players PN and SCT.  Ceertainly PN's Dynon terminal seems incredibly busy even to the extent that at times  ...

Appreciate getting the sightings from Portland

Not being fully across all of the issues in relation to SCT's locomotive fleet but certainly knowing that the SCT's in particular are very intensely utilized it has been mooted for a while now that SC ...

The Murray Basin as I last read the brief includes funds for some rehabilitation of the Portland Line, which if I recall is about increasing wagon axleloads to a massive and staggering 21 tonnes.  (si ...

I would for the time being think that SCT will not expand their rail business north of Bromelton on the narrow gauge.   Huge investment for them.  Yesterday on a seperate thread re the partnership of  ...

Let's hope not!!!   We need rural based businesses like this.

I agree kuldalai, but being on the standard gauge network there is the potential for other train operating companies better suited to develop regional freight.

Does sound a logical acquisition for CBH/Watco to pursue.   The DBZ in their original classification worked the Great Southern quite extensively and I'd assume would be able to access Hyden and Newdeg ...

GWA have been running rail trains out on the Trans Line as part of the Federal funding package to help out Whyalla.   ARTC may decide given the ongoing supply that will be generated that it could be w ...

Any update on this.  Thought it worth reactivating in view of Aurizon's withdrawal from intermodal over this week and next week.  Represents an opportunity for SCT to funnel East-West traffic from Bot ...

Thanks for all the regular updates.   Cheers TP

Even though I have concerns about the slimmed down Maryborough Yard for staging/holding trains and the lack of crossing loops from Maryborough south to Ballarat (Tourello) in the final stage, the situ ...

Sorry James.au.  The Rail Futures proposal involved extensive discussion with a very significant number of key playeres across Government at both the poltical level as well as agency level, together w ...

Have travelled numerous times on very heavily loaded V/Line services including standing all the way from both Ballarat and Geelong through to Melbourne and this week from Southern Cross to Tarneit.  E ...

Given the enormous investment already in extensive concrete and steel resleepring of the existing narrow gauge line from Townsville to Mt Isa any thought of gauge converting even well aligned, flood p ...

Thanks BigShunter.  Appreciate the local news clips you often attach in your posts.

Thank you for the slap jakar.   The H set that you say is in service was sitting down at Dynon again last night at 1845. And should I have got my material slightly wrong the principles of what I said  ...

Not to overstate the case which has pretty well been done to death, but building a new bridge needs to be done to overcome a bottleneck and optimise train operations through Albury and that shouldn't  ...
