Ilmart many thanks for your interest, comments and questions. Well they do have smaller trains as you see, but they are more often and go in many different directions.As I live in the countryside 400klms south, I have only even been on one of these trains about 3 or 4 times and each time, I was on them, everything was civilized. Not jammed in like sardines in can, so to speak. Well Perth is a very small city compared to Moscow Ilmari.Its population is only aprox 1,554,769 people. Take a look at this and look all the different train lines in all state of Australia.Save it to your favorites to look at later if as there is much to see from this link.When I was in Minsk belarus, I saw huge amounts of people all trying squeeze onto a train at the same time, then off it would go and many would come off and just as many would squeeze back on again. I nearly got trappled as everyone wanted to walk the oppersite way to me!!!! Of course I was walking on the left, where as i should have been walking on the right. In otherwords, When in Belarus, do what Belarussian do :-)))

Igor many thanks for your kind remarks. Yes its modern for us. A few years ago they opened another link of railway line going from the city southward to a place called Mandurah. I think it cost about $8, to go from Perth to Mandurah. Bus and Rain around the city is extreemly cheap and in the city of Perth in the CDB, its free of charge on the buses.Just need to know where everything goes, so you can get where you are going. Differcult for country people like me who are not used to such things.:-)

Roman. no we don't see trains on these lines like you showed.The last steam train I was on, was around 1961 I think.

Geerten could be a new Train Station Geerten, thats why you didn't see these yellow lines. Next time you come you may want to travel in style next time. You choose which way, but I can recommend, The Indian Pacific train, as i have traveled on this train many years ago, and now I hear its got even better. Goes from one side of Australia to the other, Perth to Sydney.

Majid yes small trains, not as many people as you are used to I guess.Many thanks for your comments and greetings my good friend.

I would like to take this oppertunity, to thank you all for all your comments, likes,links,vitis and greetings. I do appreciated them all and its a pleasure to share this small part of Australia with you.

Kindest Regards, David. Western Australia

Oh, David, this may be interesting for you)) train delay in Moscow

Nice span of the railway David. I like! I suppose in a country as big as yours you need a good railway network?

I've added you to my favorites:)) Excellent work!! LIKE:)) Cheers from Germany pivatana

sugarbag1 on August 2, 2010


Pivatana thankyou very very much for your nice words of praise.:-)

Martin these train here are only for the metropolitian area or city area. Small but often, about every 10 minutes, depending on what time of the day it is etc. Of course out of the city we have other trains.

Ilmari. many thanks for your link. It was very good. Its a wonder they didn't get electricuted by getting on top of wagans!!!! The train guard didn't seem all that worried!!! :-)

Kind Regards to you all. From, David

I don't really think they were allowed to go this way..

Geerten on August 8, 2010
