SYDNEY'S traffic congestion makes an impression.
''Boy, the congestion in Sydney, road wise, it makes London look a very quiet place,'' said the incoming head of the city's train system, British rail  ...

Ah, this boondoggle again. This would be nothing more than a colossal waste of money - money this country DOESN'T have. Let this be funded entirely from the private sector, if there is merit to a proj ...

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - European travellers will have to wait longer than expected for direct train connections from London to Frankfurt, German rail operator Deutsche Bahn said, citing delays to the de ...

I'm not crazy about the doors. Too square. It would have been nice to include PIDs on the sides, between the upper and lower windows, displaying a continual loop of the stations the train would be cal ...

Thanks for all of the replies, guys. I've decided that I'll stick with the Sydway after all!

Thanks for the advice, guys! It looks like I'm going to go for the TomTom GO 730.

I'm thinking of buying a satellite navigation system. Any recommendations as to which brands and models I should take a look at?

I turned everything on.

Must have been the same time I was there. A couple of tourists (?) were taking their photos on the stopped escalator, and a CSA was at the top of the escalator on a radio. I raced down the down escala ...

The escalator at Epping broke down this afternoon.  I had just got on the escalator then it cut out.  All that were on the escalator had to walk up.  The staff quickly reversed the direction of th ...

I've been using iiNet ever since I returned from the UK at the beginning of 2007. Never had a problem with them at all, apart from one major outage which lasted the better part of a day. The connectio ...

See, this is why I have my own paid server  Smile

Ditto. I can upload as many as I like. Most of mine are smeg, but there are a few good ones. Smile

I see someone has written the name Amy Whinehouse

CityRail being put out to franchise somehow doesn't surprise me.

If I were captaining that Israeli patrol boat, then I would have done the same. There would have been no way in knowing whether the Dignity was friend or foe. But trying to outmaneuvre makes you seem  ...

It's the latest fad. I've recently seen them pop up on other forums. I can easily obtain the same information, and tell it to you, if you went to any of my websites. No big deal.

Anyone see the bleeding heart media scum( CNN) stunt today???

Seems they hired a cabin cruiser and loaded it with a HUGE 300kg of so called relief supplies and tried to go through the Israli naval ex ...

Well said, TLD™! I agree with you 100%.

If I were to go off railfanning, then I'll probably drive (though, I often end up catching a train anyhow - particularly if it's in the CityRail area). As for simply getting from point A to point B, t ...

September was my only real railfanning adventure. Didn't really do much for the rest of the year. Apologies if too long!
