[quote]Where is "Bemma"? Also, pick either Albury or Wodonga (PROTIP: Wondonga had a station removed from their city centre. [color=#9900ff](¨°¦Ø¨®)[/color])[/quote]
I thought that the only thing removed from WoNdonga was the N,not the whole station![/quote]

If you squint "rri" looks like an "m"

To get back on subject (I know, I'm to blame) there have been some pretty impressive additions of ballast, with that across the Bredalbane plains being particularly good, raising the up line by more than 300mm and eliminating mudholes.
On the parallel Hume Highway, the replacement pavment sections never quite match, giving a rough ride. On Saturday I saw that they had ground the concrete surface for a couple of kilometres to smooth the running. That must have cost more than rail grinding and the grinder must have been a pretty impressive device...
This thread isn't full of complaints that the RTA built the reinforced concrete road on the cheap because it failed, but the reason it failed was the same reason there were mudholes on the track a couple of kilometres to the north...
