Probably because this is Melbourne's Newmarket, though. I can also tell you all about the "new" market that gave the suburb its name, operated for 126 years, and is now closed and converted into housing.

I haven't, I wonde......Oh, I see what you did there!

Cool little building.

Don't consider it. Go to the public transport board or whoever the fuck they are and demand more fucking buses!

And 2010? What the fuck? They're building a stadium in Melbourne in the same time frame!
Oh god, I love that "consideration" they do, and all the feasibility studies. I've noticed that in Melbourne, there's a tendency for the reports to give utterly INSANE costs in the hundreds of millions of dollars for railway extensions that shouldn't be more than $30 million. How? Because they hide all kinds of OTHER stuff in the costs, like upgrades to the rest of the network, and pass it off as only being required by the new line. So then the politicians can claim the new line is outrageously too expensive - and then neither the line, nor the upgrades that are needed ANYWAY get done. Idiots.

Yeah, how on earth can it take over two years to build a footbridge from street level to four platform areas? For god's sake! Are they only working one day a week or something? I never see many workmen about ...

That's awesome! Signal boxes! I forgot about them. There's one on the mountains line up here, at Blackheath. Actually, Blackheath has a crossing as well!! And it's on the way to Lithgow, where the steamies live. I never mentioned this before, but for the husband's 30th I took him up to Lithgow for the day and he got to drive one. My sort-of uncle has spent about 362 years studying them and he's... well, an older version of you, Ax. He let Mat chuck in some coal (they all let Mat do the coal to save them, actually ), he played with the whistle, did the steam thing and all sorts of jazz. I wonder where the pics are...

PICSPAM TIME!!!!!

Wow, that's awesome. I'd love to do something like that, but it seems all the "drive a steam train" things down here simply cost far too much for me to even contemplate doing it. I should find a convenient society to volunteer at and get to do it that way ...
