Metro Transport Sydney has been bought outright by the state government. As well as the ability to demolish the monorail, it brings the light rail into government hands so it can be expanded and integrated into the rest of the network,

I've been checking this thread for a while as I am bound for Vic in November and am hoping to spend some of the time out and about with my camera.
Those photos you've posted above are of just the kind of traction I was hoping to see! Can you give me any pointers, eg locations - where I ought to head to see some of the older locos still working? I am going to be based in Melbourne/Weribee for most of my two weeks.

Rick can certainly help you out with some gen on where to go. I would also have a look at the Railpage forum. look for the Victoria section. Vic sightings has some up to date info on whats going on. There is also photo location section that will help you find a few spots to try out.

First off a shot of the Sydney monorail at Darling Harbour, followed by some trammage in Melbourne.
Next up for the scanner will be some W.A iron ore (Port Headland) and Pilbara museum (Dampier) shots hopefully..is anyone interested in seeing such things?
