Old photos from October 2012

Another in my series of ten year old photos, this time from October 2012… Well, except for this one from 29th September 2012, which I missed last month – a letter in the Herald Sun – the time I tried and failed to escape the PTUA! Thanks, Mr Surkitt. Spring Racing Carnival… and a train  ... [More]

Old photos from September 2012

Another in my series of photos from ten years earlier. Ventura’s Oakleigh depot full of buses, having a nice rest on a Sunday, despite heavy passenger demand and crowding. Since then, most buses running PTV routes have been put into PTV liveries. What happens when you run a red light but don’t make it across.  ... [More]

Old photos from August 2012

2022 State Election politics has just hotted up on the transport front, and I’ll try and do a blog post on that soon, but in the meantime, here’s another in my series of ten year old photos: this time, August 2012. Multilingual rhinos! The “Melbourne Visitor Shuttle” bus, eventually scrapped in 2017 – it could  ... [More]

Old photos from July 2012

Another in my series of old photos from ten years ago. In July 2012 we were visiting my aunt in Perth – which was a lot of fun. Here’s that quintessential Perth railway view – a train heading down the freeway past the stopped traffic. (But remember, freeways are not a great spot for passenger  ... [More]

A rainy day at the Bourke Street/Russell Street intersection Footscray station before the new platforms were provided for the Sunbury line and the new bridge partially demolished and extended as part of  ... [More]

Old photos from May 2012

I missed doing the May post in May, so here it is a few days late: old photos from ten years ago: May 2012. A friend lives in Richmond, and car access is difficult – or at least not for the faint hearted – as the streets are narrow, and there’s almost no parking. This  ... [More]

Old photos from April 2012

Another in my series of posts of ten year old photos, and this time they’re 100% public transport related. Around the network, Myki was slowly taking over, but some of the Metcard vending machines were still hanging on. One benefit of Myki was that it handled the weekend saver cap automatically. There was a Myki  ... [More]

Old photos from March 2012

It’s the end of the month – here’s another in my series of posts with photos from ten years ago. When McKinnon station had a level crossing, this was a common and slightly unnerving sight – cars driving across just before the booms went down and citybound trains (two of them) came through. It’s not  ... [More]

Old photos from February 2012

More photos from ten years ago – this time from February 2012 The Metcard to Myki transition was well underway, and Metcard machines were increasingly being removed and replaced. Some Myki card vending machines however were still not vending cards. This Metcard machine at Flinders Street was presumably in the process of removal. Note the  ... [More]

Old photos from January 2012

Here’s another in my series of photos from ten years ago: January 2012. Between Southern Cross and North Melbourne, the Regional Rail Link was taking shape. This new bridge on the western side of the tracks was adding capacity to feed into new SoCross platforms 15 and 16. Apologies for the slightly dodgy photo snapped  ... [More]
