Cheers Matt. Thanks for your efforts anyway - some things you can’t control. OTOH I get to experience a Greyhound bus for the first time.The train is stuck. Sorry it’s canned. Had the crew on the locomotive for several hours and not allowed to go anywhere.
Trains banked up on the south both directions With the line closed at Bargo.
Will look at a run Feb 1
Happy Christmas to all.
Yep, my travails (after BAM was cancelled I jumped on a bus to CBR but only got about 30 minutes down the road when we had to turn back - have given up on getting to CBR, and flying back to MEL tonight) pale into insignificance compared to the loss of life and property in all these fires.Wisest decision.
No one would want to add to the bushfire mess. It’s horrific.
My friend mentioned just now one of his long time friends has seen the house burnt down in Lobethal (Adelaide Hills)with another losing a recently renovated barn....
Sorry about that. In the end the train crew Had burnt half their days hours waiting for a green signal to get the train to Sydney. The crew scheduled to take over when they ran out of hours were stuck as well.Cheers Matt. Thanks for your efforts anyway - some things you can’t control. OTOH I get to experience a Greyhound bus for the first time.
Yea was an article in SMH suggesting it’s months of fix up work as the signalling system was destroyed.I'm still deliberating on dates, with everything going on I'm a bit hesitant to lock a date in until I know everything will be open.
Still no passenger trains west of Mount Victoria although freights getting through, the main south at Bundanoon closed yesterday. Both due to fires.
The Indian running via Goulburn, cootamundra and then Parkes instead of via Bathurst to Parkes.Yea was an article in SMH suggesting it’s months of fix up work as the signalling system was destroyed.
Indian-Pacific somehow being re-routed via Goulburn ?
