Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 06, 2019, 07:35:49 pmWith the L1 to be most likely operated using buses from April 27th, in addition to the new network, it is looking highly likely that the withdrawn Renaults at both Fyshwick and Tuggeranong will be reactivated;

Quote from: Barry Drive on January 08, 2019, 06:35:38 pmCanberra Times "walking back" prevous article:https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/non-compliant-light-rail-could-still-get-accreditation-20190107-p50pyr.htmlThey are still trying to push the line it's "non-compliant" without any real proof.The statement that it may cause a risk "to contractors digging in the area, possibly in decades' time" seems to ignore that the high voltage cables are (mostly?) buried in the median between the tracks.
Quote from: Stan butler on January 08, 2019, 07:02:32 pmInteresting today just after the storm - I noticed the section of the tracks just outside the entrance to Epic was completely under water. Yep totally submerged by a few Centimetres.I know I have written about this before but I got shot down for mentioning it then, but I will say it again. After a short storm, I cannot see how they can allow the train to operate with submerged tracks - even if it is only a few cms.Alas, the bus I was in at the time was still able to get through.
Quote from: triumph on January 30, 2019, 08:54:27 pm... in 'early December' an LRV (fleet number?) was towed to Alinga St..
Quote from: Busnerd on January 31, 2019, 08:38:05 amThen you've answered your own contradiction, under it's own power means it drover there itself, when it was towed, it was pulled along by the diesel unimog, hence the term it is the first one arrive under it's own power.
Quote from: Barry Drive on January 31, 2019, 09:53:17 amDid you see it towed to Alinga St? I wasn't sure one made it that far until now, and the track appeared to have been fenced off.
Quote from: triumph on February 01, 2019, 10:22:40 pmAn unusual traffic signal, I have never seen anywhere before, controls the right turn lane from the South bound side of Northbourne Ave to the North side near Murdoch St.. Instead of the usual right turn arrows (R, Y, G) the signal is equipped with 'U' turn arrows - very thoughtful.
Quote from: Barry Drive on February 03, 2019, 12:09:29 pmYou will also find U-turn signals on Moreshead Drive.As for the fences - don't know if there will be permanent fences or not, but right now many crossings have temporary fences on the inside of the race. I've also noticed some crossings have little signs near the pedestrian crossing beg buttons.
Quote from: Barry Drive on February 18, 2019, 11:13:35 amThere also seemed to be some (more) track rectification work outside the depot.
Quote from: triumph on August 28, 2018, 11:23:27 pm.......It is extraordinarily difficult to find technical details on anything..... Other examples include..... the rail size, treatment and supplier (the media reported specially treated from Europe, I believe it to be VoestAlpine, who have a large number of standard catalogue sizes and steel treatments);......
Quote from: triumph on March 18, 2019, 09:31:41 pmIt never seems to end, a section of paving at Gungahlin at the northern end of the terminal has been lifted and the slab underneath removed, with a hole excavated. No workers were seen.
