Speaking of storm debris, did you notice any after the alleged gale-force winds on Wednesday night, Ax? Cos I didn't. Apparently there were some trees/limbs down in some parts of Melbourne, but I guess we're in a sheltered spot.

I never completed the Hunting the 00 series last time. So here's the last four pictures. First up, Z3 150 passing the Zoo stop in Royal Park. Note storm debris in the foreground.
I'll bet there will be plenty of storm debris to see around Auckland, if the storms ever stop!

They either have some sort of completely random fixture-generator at the AFL, or the whole thing's rigged and manipulated.
Wow, only 5 or 6 weeks? This year's draw really is stunningly daft.

By the way, are you free tomorrow? I was thinking of texting Bonnie to see if she's available to do anything before heading home.

I don't remember if i posted this or not - AirCalin A320.



I was mildly disappointed, i've been trying to catch their A330 for ages. Pointless amusing, relatively obvious fact - the only France registered plane i've ever photographed.

Nope, though we didn't get much damage from the really major storms in early April either. I took some photos of it around Brunswick West and Royal Park, and this is the worst I saw, by Royal Park railway station:



Though I will say, on Wednesday night, it was fucking scary walking home from the tram. It was a dark night and although it wasn't windy at street level, I could hear it whistling and shrieking overhead and rattling metal nearby. I was rather glad to get indoors.

France are still allowed to fly planes into New Zealand?

Here's Z3 192 arriving at the Zoo stop, with the netball part of the State Netball and Hockey Centre just visible in the background.

They have a new livery?

Wish Yarra Trams would get a new livery. Here's Z3 119 passing underneath the Upfield railway line.

At Royal Park railway station (just behind where I took that picture), the station nameboards on both platforms have pictures of zoo creatures. I don't think I've any clear photos of it uploaded yet, though.

Z3s 135 and 150 meeting outside Royal Park railway station. 135, left, is running the 55; 150, right, is running the 00. This is my last 00 photo.
