Hey Ali, if we get around to visiting Royal Park for nerding around, this is one end of the railway cutting. The rock photos I showed you were taken pretty much from the bottom of the cutting below where this shot was taken from. There's a bike path beside the railway line and a seemingly little used walking path across the top.

Oh, fuck you Fortune City.

That showed up for a long time! The one that's still showing is the new livery.

Differences are just a different shaped khangaroo, new font on the titles and i'm convinced a brighter shade of red.

Yep, no plans for tomorrow. Let me know if you guys are going to do something...

Eek. When I got home, it was kinda the same thing... I could hear the wind roaring through the high-tension power cables near our place, and it was also making the most unnerving sounds, howling around our house.

Ahh, OK. I figured the visible one was the new one, since the kangaroo looked different.

I rather like this photo of an Upfield-bound Comeng EMU arriving at Royal Park. Especially as a Z3 tram has snuck into the right hand side.

I don't know why people need to change logos and "branding" around all the time... seems like spending a lot of money for no good reason.

Although I guess it keeps the train/tram/plane spotters interested

It was only done because the A380 has a no paint area where the leg used to go, and they didn't want to cut off it's leg.

Righto, I'll send her a text. Any ideas of where to go? I'm tempted to suggest Royal Park.

The worst part was, I nearly took out a cyclist! I just didn't see his little cycle light coming down the road (those things are bloody hard for me to spot). But I think he was braking anyway, since I had the cane and all.

And my lounge window was rattling away. I'm just glad I'm on the lower level; the windows upstairs would've been copping it worse.

They're still goofy looking trains.
