Can we also just acknowledge one thing, train horns have not got louder. That is just BS. The same trains with the same horns have been operating in suburban Melbourne for the past 20 years.

Oh FFS.

If you don't want the sound of the railway to keep you up at night, don't move in near a railway line. I bet the same residents moaning about the noise moved in because it was close to publ ...

Lets get this straight:

Any form of DMU - Sprinter, Xplorer, Vlocity etc will be limited to 80km/h for the entire 386km journey. An N Class and N Set will be permitted to run at 100km/h. The differ ...

I believe XPTs run Sydney - Melbourne - Sydney on one tank, so Melbourne - Mildura - Melbourne would be fine.

It comes back to political will. There is already very little political will to re-intr ...

I have a few issues here.

1. Steamrail, VGR, SRHC, etc are all predominantly volunteer run organisations. They run a very lean business utilising a large volunteer workforce. You can't just create  ...

Has road 2 been removed from Mildura?

Are the car sheds still in Mildura Yard?

I believe Mildura station itself was straight-railed several years ago.

Would you consider 2 x additional vlocity sets (SG Long distanace) instead of the n set?

would 1 x 6 car set and 1 x 3 car set fit into Platform 1 at Maryborough?

The advantage of running the loco hauled train would be the higher allowed speeds through the 50+ unprotected level crossings between Maryborough and Mildura. This would not be possible with Vlocities ...

As much as I would like to see this line re-opened to grain trains, the reality is if the Toolamba - Echuca & Eaglehawk - Inglewood lines haven't been re-opened when they need less work, then simply p ...

I'm still not too sure if this listing actually means anything in real terms.

However, if I was to list Melbourne's no. 1 downside when compared with 15 years ago, it would be housing affordabilit ...

Does anybody really care about these rankings?

Aside from a bit of bragging rights, what else does this actually mean?

Rather than relying on what Google Maps says, why don't you actually go out to Clifton Hill and have a look for yourself, then you might see why more experienced posters here say the space just isnt'  ...
