Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Adelaide 4000 class is the metro version of the VLine Velocity trains. Diesel trains will eventually be phased out by EMU or Allstrom's hydrogen powered trains now operating in Germany and a new contract has been signed for use in the UK.

[VIS] Re: interstate passenger trains back to the Adel Railway Station

there is a long term plan to introduce standard gauge rail onto the Adelaide Metro network, in the not too distant future will start with the Belair Line especially if the Northern Rail Bypass gets the green light. Converting to standard gauge will gain new train sets and cheaper to purchase. Having...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Rail Transport & Infrastructure

[VIS] Re: interstate passenger trains back to the Adel Railway Station

from what I understand is that there is provision for a new railway station at the new medical science building ( cheese grater) and the new university building where there is a tram stop at the Morphett Street Bridge, so if regional trains do start again ( which eventually has to happen despite the...
