Ian, you've left at completely the wrong time. I finally got my Mac to let me upload some photos I took today, including the stadium ones. Well, I'll post them tomorrow when you're around. For now, here's two for my own enjoyment.


(W class tram crossing the LaTrobe Street bridge with the Telstra Dome in the background.)


(And now a more modern, less attractive B2 class tram in the same spot.)

*is too*


I was wondering if any of the Muse fans were about... I've been trying to remember if I ever knew the name of the piece of classical music they rip off in the middle of Hoodoo.

Just planning a solo railfan trip, actually. I haven't done the train from Frankston to Stony Point, the only diesel-hauled carriage train on the Melbourne suburban network. Rumours are flying that the end of it could come within this month, as it is set for replacement by one of the Sprinter diesel railcars. I don't want to miss my chance to do it. So I think I'll jump on a train down to Frankston tomorrow and ride/photograph it. I did want to do it with company, but I don't want to risk missing it. I suppose I can just read and such ...

I think I listened to Hoodoo ... once? So I'm no help. I can't stand Black Holes And Revelations. Though its songs were good live.

Also... SPRINTERS FUCKING SUCK DONKEY BALLS.

I hope the train adventure will be fun for you tomorrow Ax! When you are heading down to Frankston, make sure to wave when you hit McKinnon (I live closeby )

Hey, if you are free next Sunday (16th), do you fancy going to take some photo's in the Botanic Gardens?? Do you wanna come too Ali??

Yeah, I figured you wouldn't know.

I wish I'd seen them now.

Looks like it's going to be a surprisingly long trip too. I don't want to take any risks with my connections, so I'll be out the door on the 8:54am tram to get to Frankston for the 11:05am departure to Stony Point. I probably won't get home until 3pm! Better take a muffin with me ...

I've not been on a Sprinter yet. It seems the people over on Vicsig think introducing the Sprinters to the Stony Point line is a good thing! My plan for the next couple of months is to take a few trips to regional areas just to see what the trains are like and to get out and about. Even if I'll probably just have my nose buried in some book anyway!
