Thanks YM-Mundrabilla.

I have reworded Question 16 to clarify that it was referring to the electric equipment.

Only 65% for me as I struggled with the early questions that were pre 1950s.

I also wasn't sure about the question near the end regarding who ordered the Siemens trains whether it was M>Train or their previous guise as Bayside Trains.

I mis-guessed the Bayside/M>Train question too, but a couple of lucky guesses netted me 95% overall.

Only 65% for me, but I was less sure of events in the post-V.R. period.  The more recent history has less of an interest for me, as does the suburban subject matter.  The earlier stuff for me is a passion; the later stuff is a commute.

Aided by some excellent guesswork (!), I scraped up 70%, and enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks again, spletsie; I don't know how you have the tenacity and patience to put these quizzes together, but they are always top class.
