I am learning quite a lot about Adelaide transport through your log.

Is this the line that's being closed down for repairs because the electrical work that was supposed to last 25 years didn't last 12 months (or something like that)?

No isn't that the sea cliff line??? Jenny can you confirm.

Yep, Seaford line. The one where, when they had finally electrified its length, they then didn't have enough electric trains to run on it (a grand total of 4, initially) and so still had to use the old diesel ones. But it sounds as though the Belair line will be impacted by closures too so maybe the problem is north of where the lines split?

Was at the junction from the report that I saw. The Minister sounded severely pissed off.

Must have been the Opposition's fault.
