That's interesting because the Great Northern these days runs right through from Finsbury Park (and beyond) so it should be possible to get from Finsbury Park to Moorgate without changing. Maybe it considers ease of interchange?

Interesting that you took the option to change two extra times at Finsbury Park and Old Street when you had the option to stay on the Piccadilly to Kings Cross and change to the Northern there. Evidently interchanges were such that two additional connections didn't cost you time.

Depends on how you define 'Punt'. Is that one in NZ propelled using a punt pole? There are many cable ferries across the Murray River in NSW and SA: Wymah, Speewa, Narrung, Wellington, Tailem Bend, Mannum, Purnong, Walker Flat, Swan Reach, Morgan, Cadell, Lyrup, Waikerie.

Be aware... there’s a tram there. Light rail daytime testing is now underway on George Street.

That’s also the case for Australian timetables of that era.

The Nationals 7h
A soldier, a farmer, a politician, a leader, an ambassador, an author, a husband, a father and above all a person of great dignity and honour. The Nationals family and our nation have today lost a truly great Australian with the passing of the Hon Tim Fischer AC.

Tim Fischer was very decent human being. Humble, courageous, honest, loyal and ethical. He was one of those rarest of Australian politicians: a true statesman. We could really do with more of those qualities today.

Today’s historic pic: X54 and 934 at the head of The Overland at Melbourne Spencer Street before departure on its overnight journey to Adelaide, June 21-28 1986. The Overland has been running between Melbourne and Adelaide since 1887 and still departs this very same platform.

This one’s a bit more poignant. I visited Lockhart, Tim Fischer’s birthplace, just days after this railway station nameboard had been uncermoniously uprooted in 1987. Thanks to Tim though, grain trains still run through Lockhart to Boree Creek today. R.I.P. Tim Fischer.

It’s hard to know how best to honour Tim Fischer, former deputy Prime Minister, who passed away today. As he was such a passionate advocate for rail, it has to be train related. Here’s a re-post of a historic rail pic from his birthplace, Lockhart , NSW.

How delightful that the best thing he could think of to plan in advance was a visit to Mile End 🙂

Darren, I see a little of Tim in you. The best way to honour his memory would be to follow his example of being positive, respectful and seeking to unite our communities. We need more Tim Fischers in our parliament.

Tim was a very rare person, very widely respected across the political spectrum. A statesman.

He loved talking trains. The last time I saw him, he (very politely) gate crashed an interview at Southern Cross Station to give his view on the Albury Line. Vale.
