For those who aren't on facebook 4000 class appreciation group, Sunday marked the last road delivery of the 4000 class railcars, with 4022B being delivered to Seaford Depot. Thanks to Wayne Smile

I maybe wrong, but in my opinion, I don't think they will be converted to AC Traction. They are far more flexible in their in their current configuration. With a nominal 15 years of life remaining, I  ...

I think I'm right when I say that the tourist train that runs around Moonta Mines on the YP, is the former train that was around the zoo. Because of its gauge, the operators of it actually need a Cat  ...

Lastly, Standard Gauge never made it down to the Silos, so they were only serviced by the BG.

Don't forget Wallaroo, and Wallaroo is an export port.

We've got some spare 2000/2100 class railcars that we are tendering to get rid of. You could use them in lieu of the older carriages. Ours our only 40 years old (thereabouts).

Personally, given that the SV6's is factory lowered, I wouldn't be inclined to take it down the access paths. Frankly, now I'd be inclined to walk, as the access paths are not maintained, and my car i ...

Just looking at Avenue St, towards Millswood Station on Google Earth.

You could always look at R1005/R1006 for a modern day Double Headed Replacement. These were built at Port Augusta in 2008/2009 for Rio Tinto.

[quote=torrens5022]Seems a bit stupid of Adelaide Metro to not look at the stats on Attendance and cater the same amount of services for Port games.

It's a bugger that you guys won't grab a 1500V DC version of our A-City Electric Trains. Kudos to the team putting them together. Unfortunatley, it appears that Bombardier have been let out of the pro ...

With 8 3 car electric trains in service every 15 minutes conceivably a specific shuttle may not be warranted.  There may be sufficient rollingstock to absorb it in the Seaford Timetable.

4010A was delivered this morning according the A-City Class Enthusiast Facebook Group.

I just rang the museum, and made a credit card payment over the phone. I received a receipt and a thank you letter about a week and half later.

People saw YPR's red hen/superchook, and once they stepped inside would frequently say, "wow, this has been done up nicely". It did give us something over the other Red Hen Operators, but they'd be co ...
