Absolutely, but all the track was laid when each state ran things their own way. Victoria chose mostly broad gauge, NSWGR went standard, QLD went narrow and SA couldn't make up their minds and chose all three.I think it would have helped Australia if it had one standard guage for track - three is it not, depending upon State? It is good to get the opportunity to see the country (Oz is a BIG place) and someone else is paying. Good luck in your career.
Reminded me of some Battlefield 3 maps.Absolutely, but all the track was laid when each state ran things their own way. Victoria chose mostly broad gauge, NSWGR went standard, QLD went narrow and SA couldn't make up their minds and chose all three.
All the interstate main line is standard and only a few remaining branch lines in SA and VIC are broad gauge and there's no money in converting them. I think QLD still run a fairly big narrow gauge network but I dont know much about that area.
It's been a great way to see the country and get paid for it. The railways arent what they used to be here and as I said it's amazing to see some of the old infrastructure, see big old abandoned yards which thirty years ago were bustling metropolises of activity and action.
Here's Delec (a very big and important Sydney depot in its day) as it looked 30 years ago:
And here it is now:

So I dunno, this is just one example and it can be quite chilling wandering around an abandoned yard such as in Cowra.
Absolutely, but he is 3 years old! I feel like he should not be able to enjoy or follow something like that, or maybe I am just underestimating kids. :lol:Those also cater to the adults, The amazing world of Gumball aswell, to a lesser degree.*Insert blathering about ponies here *
I do this - not because I can't do it instantly in my head - but because I've gotten so lazy with having a calculator around all the time that I use it for the simplest calculations, like x+1. Essentially, the calculator's replaced my thought processes, it's become my brain. I don't think, I type. I haven't done any mental arithmetic in nearly a year now.She also was using her calculator to do 8+4.
