Historical Map: General Railway Development to 1985, Melbourne, Australia (1969)

Submitted by John Mullany via email.

Here’s an interesting rail planning map from 1969, presumably produced in association with the 1969 Melbourne Transportation Plan. It outlines all the improvements planned for Melbourne’s metropolitan rail system, including a whole bunch of new branches as shown in blue. According to the map, the works depicted were to be completed by 1985.

Fast forward to 2015 — some 30 years past that deadline — and only the City Loop (opened between 1981 and 1985) and the extension to Westona (1985, now part of a loop on the Werribee Line) have been built. The rest remain unrealised, with the Doncaster Line being a fine example of a project stuck forever in “planning hell”.


hey everyone! I’ve decided to put together some free printables which you might find useful for your studies. I’ve made a daily planner for in depth, day to day planning and a weekly planner. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I’m always recommending that people use weekly planners - it made sense to make my own! let me know if you guys like these and if you have any other printable requests! 


TO SAVE AS PNG IMAGE: click on the planner you wish to save, and then once the image is enlarged right click and choose ‘open image in new tab’ - you can then right click on the photo you opened to save it to your computer!

hey again! after the success {thank you!} of my free printable daily and weekly planners, I’m back after several requests with printable monthly planners. I’ve made one for every remaining month of 2015, and here’s how they look - 

For your ease, I’ve made a Google Drive folder containing A4 size PDFs of each monthly planner. When you’ve opened the folder, just choose the one you want and press download {the arrow with a line under it on the top bar}. Enjoy! please feel free to send other printable requests my way - I’m working on more ones to share right now.

Halfway through the week on my passion planner. I decided to try it out this week and I don’t think its the best tool for high schoolers, since almost half of my time slots are taken up by school. Maybe time slots in general aren’t a good idea for me.

I also got a new book at UO. Its basically filled with really interesting questions that can be used for discussions, journal entries, etc.
