February 2014

  • Moved the index menu to the start page - this means you get the menu as the default when you start the site.
  • Changed the default format for pictures to be slightly larger (now 1000x800) and the thumbnail list in the pcitures by author is 5 columns wide. I made this change because screens are now a lot larger and a different default shape than when I originally designed the site (no longer normally 4:3 ratio).
  • Added some more recent pictures I have taken of rolling stock.

January 2014

  • Updated some information about current location of some vehicles.

November 2013

  • Removed Andrew R's photos at his request.

November 2012

  • Added photos from Fiona Brown of restored sleeping car Angas at Little Forest Country Cottages - www.littleforest.com.au.

October 2012

  • Updated the National Railway Museum Exhibits Guide in the list of downloadable PDFs - this is a guide to the exhibits at the National Railway Museum, Port Adelaide, written by the Comrails webmaster in his capacity as the NRM Collection Manager Rollingstock. It has been formatted to an ebook page size for use on electronic book readers.

October 2012

  • Introduced new downloadable file Volume 8 in ebook format (in addition to A4 format) for use on an e-book reader. The paper size is smaller than the printable format files and the text is formatted in single column mode making it easier to page through on an ebook reader.
  • Fixed a few minor formating problems with the downloadable PDF files.

  • Minor text updates.

January 2012

December 2011

  • Minor updates to some entries.
  • Reworked some of the pages in the PDF version so that they look a little better - fixed some page overflows that I had not been aware of.
  • Introduced new downloadable files that all formatted for use on an e-book reader. The paper size is smaller than the printable format files and the text is formatted in single column mode making it easier to page through on an ebook reader. They have been tested on a Sony Reader, but there might be a few file glitches (as these are new), so please let me know of any error you find so I can fix them (It's not feasable for me to carefully check ever pages format).

October 2011

  • Added the National Railway Museum Exhibits Guide to the list of downloadable PDFs - this is a guide to the exhibits at the National Railway Museum, Port Adelaide, written by the Comrails webmaster in his capacity as the NRM Collection Manager Rollingstock.

February 2011

  • Minor changes to the layout of the PDF downloadable version of the site. Fixed some minor bugs in formatting and introduced table of contents at the start of chapters.
  • Fixed a problem with some photo links not working in some non-windows browsers - had used back slash instead of forward slash.

January 2011

  • Major update to the look of the various data listing pages. I have consolidated all the style sheets into one set and reworked everything so that all the data pages now have a common look and feel about them.
  • Added SAR C class cattle vans to fright listings
  • Updated the downloadable PDF versions of the site so that the index and table of contents are hyperlinks that take you to the appropriate page in the document.
