ADELAIDE  RAILCAR  DEPOT
FROM  PORT  ROAD  BRIDGE

5th June 2009

Here are pix taken from Port Road Bridge yesterday. Doesn't show a great deal in reality. Behind me the contractors are working on the installation of a new tram bridge between the bridge (road) spans.

<<< It is only now I have worked out why the two Trans Adelaide tracks were closed with heaped ballast....duh...... (A slow learner I would say)

I believe the two R/H tracks of TA are mainly for Belair Hills trains to keep 'em separated, the other two service the Noarlunga and Tonsley lines. Note the old wye signal cabin from the olden days in background. 
I am surprised it stands after so many years of non use. The pigeons call it home these days.
