A look at the Sydney Trams & the Mono rail as they travel around Sydney, Australia
Video Rating: 4 / 5
Heard a few days ago that the Monorail is going to a new home in tasmania, Not sure how acurate it is but I heard it was going to Tassie for a new lease on life down there, rarley went on the monorail (went on it in janurary this year for the first time since I was 10 and that was 15 years ago) I just cant imagine Sydney without the monorail it’ll be like melbourne without the trams freaky and weird at first but the tram lines extension idea now thats a good idea
the monorail is going to be sent to the scrap heap in a few years while the state govt is extending the existing light rail line to dulwich hill(to be opened in 2014) and are also thinking of building some more light rail lines.
hopeless tram, hopeless monorail.. why did sydney waste its money when it should have had a subway metro. like everyother major city in the world!!
oh it looks painfully slow, is this for tourist reasons?
- A section of railway line formerly used by freight trains, including the Glebe tunnel, was taken over by the Sydney Light Rail, and is now used by trams.
man!! read my lips.
So much fun to paint !
wahahah so clean and so quite…nice!!
and one of the biggest in the world, but its shear size is what killed it, at the time, if they had given it just 10 to 15 more years would have sorted it self out with all the new, higher capacity trams
they have already started planning it, i hope i can be a part of it as a civil engineer
i wish we in Karachi had something like this, it will be a dream come true.
GOLLIWOGG is considering visiting Sydney on his World Tour, and is looking for new fans in the area.
- Sydney had the biggest tram network in Australia at one time, but it was all abandoned by about 1961.
- Main lines would need to be electrified at 25,000 Volts AC, to keep infrastructure costs down. Main factor against it is that it is still cheaper to buy diesel fuel than it is to build and maintain overhead wiring, and supply electricity.
And here comes a train … Oh… *Crash*
Don’t most of them?
The trams on Croydon go onto rail lines to go from one area to the next
Now this is what I call PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION!!! Light rail is designed to stop not at only stations, but thes like this one seen in this video can stop about anywhere on the street. Monorails are seperated from street traffic. And at times they can be geared for high-speed express service depending on what type of monorail it is.
wow, did that say the GRAND CANYON IN 3D!?!? OMG
lol at the toyota minivan following the tram
i want to ride
looks like it can also go on train tracks…
Just A Video I was Looking For
