A line up for this weekends MAJOR WORKS on the NOARLUNGA line, between Goodwood and Brighton. Seen here in the Oaklands siding, which probably has not seen rail traffic in many years.

27th November 2009.  

The rain has stopped, the trains have stopped out this way and the work will start any minute on the Major Works for the weekend. This arvos re-visit to the site of course it 'poured' down again, managed a few pics between the downpours. 
The main emphasis here was this great mound of ballast piled up near the Brighton Road rail crossing, had it not been pouring (was going to say pissing down) would have climbed the mound and got a shot or two off BUT it rained and there was thunder around.

28th November 2009.  

Giving you an idea of progress from yesterdays shots....
All very slow when you imagine the orange crane is able to grab just four concrete sleepers at a time. It lifts the sleepers off the other machine holding the stack of sleepers (only four at a time), swings the load around placing on the trackbed within the painted lines on the ballast, manouevres them into place, releases them and repeats the process. Hardly modern technology from what I can see, almost third world standard, unless the other tracklaying machines are unable to lay track on a bend which may account for the perceived lack of progress from my perspective of this operation (ignorance is not bliss)..
Will go out and have another crack tomorrow, I cannot see the weather improving at this time (0023 on Sunday) - still gale force winds and showers lashing in off the sea, have heard a tile or two lifting as well.

NOARLUNGA  INTERCHANGE

Early rise around 6.50 am to the Adelaide's Southern Suburbs arriving at Noarlunga Centre Station at 8.15 am this morning to see whatís on with the Noarlunga Line Upgrade. After checking the scene there was substitute Buses above the station at Noarlunga Centre taken passengers between Oaklands Park to Noarlunga Centre for the 6 months required on Stage 2 of the Noarlunga Centre Line Upgrade . The Railway Station at Noarlunga Centre was cordoned off to the public, with Platform 2 with a new track laid, and Platform 1 without any track laid yet. It appears all the old track is taken up now, with the new Track being laid from Noarlunga Centre working itís way Northwards to Brighton Railway Station.
