Belgrave signalbox is not required. Currently, when shunting is done with only 1 shunter, they ride the train around in the top yard, jump off to move points, jump back on and go for a ride again etc. ...

Yes, but there is one fundamental flaw with all safeworkers on all railways. They are humans, and humans make mistakes.

Lakeside signal box is required. There is no interlocking between the two ends, so a head-on collision can be signalled with nothing to stop it. This is not a matter of "this would be nice", it is a m ...

Honestly, absolutely no idea how much money is wanted or needed for any of these projects.

MCK museum redevelopment is being done in 3 stages, with funding for 1 and 2 complete. More funding is requi ...

Track needs serious work done to it. Frequently have areas where water accumulates with only a low amount of rain.

Money for admin is required. This is due to lack of volunteer interest in the admin  ...

I do feel that the railway may close as a result, unless a radical change in the management structure occurs, which probably won't happen. If it doesn't close, a reduction in services will definitely  ...

As a railfan:

I am unhappy about this, as it will mean the loss of a railway that is currently unique to Victoria (ie. 2'6" railway with VR stock on it for most trains).

As a member and volunteer  ...

No trains terminated at Craigieburn for several years prior to electrification, due to no crossover being provided there, hence, there were several trains that went to Donnybrook.

If that $4 fee quoted above is correct, it is unjust. Charging for trains to move freight, causing a disruption 1-2 times a night, whilst not doing something similar for trucks disrupting residents mo ...

Will be a very long time yet before a P will be given out to any heritage operator. You would think PN would get first dibs on any surplus locomotives first.

Why on earth would PN be given locos???? ...

It was not the government that made the logs traffic disappear, it was PacNat. They decided to roughly triple their fees in one hit, with almost no warning. The result was that it was now cheaper to m ...

Doing a stretch test also is good if it's a loco onto the front of a passenger train, as it means that no massive jerks will be felt by passengers as the train starts moving.

As for coupling on cur ...

Other than what's in the Jan-Feb 2011 edition of AME, I have heard nothing. I was also unable to turn up anything useful on Google. Might just be best to keep an eye out, in case a new website appears ...

In NSW, there are various companies that you have to pay to get taught to become a driver, and then apply to the railway company to become a driver for them. Southern Cross Rail Services is one such t ...

They'd look very unusual in Victoria, but then again though, there are already Queensland and Tasmanian 3'6" stuff running in Victoria, with a 2' South African NGG16 to be restored to service...

No ...

Assuming the Tarneit (wherever the hell that is) Link does not go ahead, the dedicated V/line lines from Southern Cross to Sunshine could benefit Geelong line trains, as they could then let it link in ...

Those mudholes are caused by poor drainage, which is usually looked after by ballast that's under the track. Unfortunately, it looks as though that ballast may need a new compass.

Possibly one of many places being closed for a short-ish amount of time so maintenance can be completed on the siding/points.

Posted 07 Jan 2011 11:15 in Victoria by 412M

Both.

Possibly after the NGG is restored, PBR will find that it only uses all of it's Na's that aren't in the workshops at the time on very special occasions. Maybe then would be the time to consider sendin ...

At PBR, the DH is the absolute maximum height and width which can be allowable (special restrictions are imposed on it's operations in some areas as a result of these). As for length, the longer it is ...

I disagree with you, RoderickSmith. The clue reads station located on a curve. This could mean the platform is curved, the buildings are curved, or even that the buildings and platform are straight, w ...

I think 3 road was used when SRV's train went down there last year...

And thanks to Galron for not quoting me.

18A is likely to be far closer to being finished than most people think. A member of PBPS has, over a long time, been collecting parts not used by the workshops on the existing Nas (as they only have  ...
