Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you to all who make running this behemoth called Banbury Connections a joy. With all the recent permanent way improvements, the opportunity for a possession over Christmas and the return of our railway maintenance gnome (Chief Mechanical Engineer), 2020 should be a year of even greater operational reliability!
Technically the IEP is too modern, even for Banbury Connections 2012 mode!
The head ganger got to ride the new tram from Gungahlin to the City and admits he was impressed by the speed of up to 70km and the track quality and green wave signalling at intersections. Given the lack of road capacity and the real need to escape Gungahlin as quickly as possible the tram seems, after all, an excellent investment!
It is also somewhat reminiscent of the United States' inter-urbans.
