The 1916 working timetable shows No. 44 ("Main Line Mixed") at 8.00pm and arriving Launceston at 6.55am. It was primarily a good train with carriage(s) attached

By comparison, the daytime express ( ...

This unit retained its previous cab and standard MU equipment so the recent use does not involve any remote control equipment. Part of its intended use was on services where only one TR was required f ...

12 to 14 June 1982 was the cut-over weekend, although ballast trains did run before this, possibly push-pull from the southern end where there was turnout connection until 1983. Any movements beyond t ...

That was a good day, although more spectacular from the ground than on-board the train. I'd be one of the heads on the train but can't tell which

Most of the passengers (myself included) got off at ...

By the look of it, it is just decoration on the hoarding to try and distract people from yet another empty shop

Some of the captions are dubious (where they even tried) and no attempt made to credi ...

A map like this may offer some assistance -  - it does show the track manager

Has anybody experienced issues or problems with their non sound 48 class after fitting a DCC decoder.
Yep. I've put a couple of NCE D16MTC decoders in three locos and even after ...

937 is now part of the PepperGreen Farm complex at North Bendigo (just opposite the current tram terminus). It appears to be the on-site tea rooms and function space

It was in place in April 2018 b ...

[quote=X32]Well my last question was obviously too hard so I will wait to see what archives comes up with.

In the meantime a simpler question. I can see in some photos that there was at one time wh ...

Last time I was there I just got the expensive bus. Same mob who runs them in Melbourne, bought a return ticket online before I left. Lot of slow driving through pretty normal suburbs but the city loo ...

The topic was covered in some detail in the November 1999 and February 2000 issues of Tasmanian Rail News, including photos

Dry Creek Station is before the yard proper, so the trip to Mawson Lakes/Mawson Interchange is worthwhile for the passing view (plus it has a much higher train frequency).

Also Kilburn has a good v ...

Was there one between Deloraine and Railton say 20 years ago?
Dunorlan (KPW86.0) was a maintenance siding up until PN times at least

I’d agree with the suggestion re TRN 235. Also the Stokes articles in the January & February 1990 Bulletins have details of the passenger cars

Differences in capacities could be accounted for the ...

PT1 and PT2 were dual braked in the 1930s for operation with either diesel or steam railcars.

At least two FFL wagons had dual brakes in the 1980s and were stencilled as such. DB6 definitely had bo ...

My two orange/grey G class and an AN liveried BL arrived today. I'd not heard anything but rang them only about a month ago re ordering another product and sorted it all out then

[quote=DQ2004]After checking I can confirm you are quite correct, they were taken in April. I don't know what date precisely but I'm sure that will be around somewhere.

I know it was between the 6th ...

M5 on a show day special I think this was taken in 1999

TTMS didn't ever do any show day trains as that wasn't the business model.

In 1999 there were suburban shuttles in Apr ...

If you don't have any luck, send me an email and I'll make sure it gets passed on. I am on the organising committee but Brian & Bob look after that side of things

Just south of Sorell Springs Road crossing?
