We also have wires at Adelaide yard. one return and one earth, they run to mile end.

Escalators have also arrived, and the sparks team have moved from 1 & 2 platforms, to 3 & 4

[COM] Re: #COM: Goodwood Junction Rail Underpass | $110m

what are the metal strips alongside each and every rail? Grounding strips that thin for 25 kV would be pretty useless...

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

Myself on a few occasions has had my card run out, and had to buy a paper ticket instead. Without this option, i would have to turn around and go find a recharge station.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I'm all for preserving the Old H cars, but why are they bothering to track test trams they have no intention of placing into service?!

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

Is the substation even finished yet!?

Surely they wouldn't be installing wires (as much of it its even up yet) while the system is live, as we don't even have any trains to run under them. Trains won't be fitted out when they arrive anyway.

Suspect this is just a "always treat wires as live" lesson.

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

I bet they won't be complaining about the almost complete silence of the electrics replacing the diesels.

Re: News & Discussion: Trains

Your correct, however who did the refurb..... I'm sure it was Bombardier, as they also have the maintenance contract.

Seaford is not live yet is it? I guess you don't need 25kv to bolt seats in, but you do need it to test other systems. Is there permanent staff at Seaford yet?

Re: News & Discussion: Trains

That's what I thought. there was also mention that the internal fit out would be done in SA. Don't know how though, no power at dry creek, and Seaford not complete or prepared for that kind of work. Bombardier did the refurb of the 3000's at dry Creek I think.
