New publication[edit]

I have just looked through a new release called A History of WAGR Passenger Carriages ISBN 0646459023 written by Andrew May and Bill Grey. As the name says is covers all carriages used by WAGR includes original photos, drawings/diagrams and scaled drawings. It covers purchase and where they were used (including carriage numbers) . Its upto date with sections on AEA & AEB (current metro passenger cars) and the WDA, WDB & WDC the current prospector trains. Gnangarra 13:17, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Wikilinking[edit]

The history section could do with quite a bit of wikilinking to relevant pages. Wongm (talk) 03:21, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Railways in Perth[edit]

At the moment Railways in Perth is just a redirect here, and this article only deals with suburban passenger services. From my limited knowledge you also have the dual gauge goods lines from Midland to Forestfield / Kewsdale, as well as another freight line north to Fremantle, and south back onto one of the passenger lines. Unfortunately I don't know enough to expand it out.

Railways in Adelaide and TransAdelaide is an example of how to manage the split between it all, if anyone wants to jump in. I have never liked the Railways in Melbourne / Freight railways in Melbourne / Connex Melbourne split, even though I added the middle one.Wongm (talk) 13:25, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

there are also a number of disused lines. Gnangarra 13:43, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

The whole thing could do with alot more historical information, I'm especially interested in knowing what year each track was opened, and that sort of thing. Oxinabox (talk) 01:46, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Useful stuff[edit]

These links have a few useful titbits - I have already gone though the Midland line: [1] [2]

Railway map[edit]

Could anyone be able to complete the railway map (File:Transperth railway map.svg)? The map is a bit cut off to the south. It does not show Mandurah line completely! --106.68.124.109 (talk) 14:49, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Armadale/Thornlie railway line[edit]

Will the new Stadium station be at the same location as the old Belmont Park? Useddenim (talk) 18:05, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

According to www.perthstadium.com.au, "the now closed Belmont Park Station will be expanded into a six platform rail station called Stadium Station." So the answer is YES. -FrancDeBx (talk) 20:08, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
