A London taxi! It's at the Emporium shopping centre in Melbourne. We may well be travelling in one in a few weeks. Perth ordered quite a number of London style taxis to trial. I must check to see how they are faring. I think they might be a good design for all Australian cities.
This stand is being built at Southern Cross Station to support a very old and historic clock. More on that once the clock has been placed in position.

Oh dear, a restaurant tram broke down. Everybody off. They all sounded very 'jovial' so I suspect they were well into their meals and drinks.
While the emergency truck arrived promptly enough, it took forever to connect up the tow bar and remove the defective tram, with the delay to all services of over forty minutes.
The diners thought they would be put on the following restaurant tram, but there was news for them. The tram sailed straight past them. There is usually a third restaurant tram, so they were probably put on that, but from what I know, the three trams are usually booked out well in advance for the late dinner.
Road resurfacing down below. I haven't noticed that there was anything wrong with the road surface. Maybe it authorities using up the budgets before the end of the financial year. I found the machine with the two huge lights quite intriguing. I don't know if it had any other purpose than for lighting.
Laverton Station has a relatively new entrance. You climb stairs or use the lift, cross the bridge a bit, then go down stairs or by lift to the platform. What do people want at a railway station? I should think a quick and easy entrance and exit and Laverton Station certainly doesn't give that. Station design is getting less friendly, rather than better.
There was a huge number of cars in the huge carparks and good to see a decent number of bicycles.
Now at Newport Station, and it is a bit hard to see, there is a raised area on the platform to make it easy for people in wheel chairs to enter and exit the train, rather that the time wasting procedure of the train driver getting out, placing ramps and then putting them back again.
Victoria's Miami Beach? Only $1 an acre? Well, it is hardly my idea of Miami and surely it would be £1 an acre.
This is the best designed drinking fountain I have yet to see. Excess water flows down to the dog bowl, coming out the top hole at the bowl, and the level does not go above the lower overflow drain hole.
The board is not big enough for me clear my conscience. Well, R would tell you that.
