THE SUBURBAN AND RACE RAILWAY TRAFFIC. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 13 November 1896
TIE: SnUBUneas AND RACE RAILWAY Tnsvfr c.-A discussion took place at the Flemington Council on Tuesday night of more than local interest, regard ing the above subject. Foryears people residing on the Essendon line have cam plained of tile interferhnce onl race days with the ordinary railway traffic, and have protested against the curtailment olf their train service, and some of the train passing Kensington and Newmar ket. These complaints are intelligible but it utst be retmetsbered that on race days the North Eastern line fromnt Spen cer-st. to the racecourse junction is re quired for the use of practically the peo ple of inearly ail Melbourne and suburbs, aod it is hardly reasonable for an ad jacent suburb to grumnble at a temporary inconvenicnce. Tihe is anothler and a serious aspect of the question, viz.: that it will be a day of possible dire disaster wsheln the race trafilic is hlampered and compilicated by the usual suburban trains vith only the present two sets of rails avai...
CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 13 November 1896
SCYCLING NOTES. Br RiAEIWOL. hIn company with " The Nipper" I jour neyed for Ballarat oi Sunday last. A dull forenoon, with occasional showers, induced us to delay starting till 3 p.m. With a favorable wind Melton was reached at 5 o'clock. Here thli milelpost showed "The Marsll," 9 miles; '"Bal lai," 22. We decided to make the former our halting place for tea. On arrival there, however, Thile Nipper "squeaked" out "loose pedal," and knowing the dangerous state of the back road to Ballan, we decided to reach that plnce befuoredjok. _ After an application of the spanner to the cycle, we looked to the inner man, with light refresh ments (fact), and at 5.45 we commenced that long steep climb-" the cyclist's dread"-up the Pentland hills. For six miles it is one continual ascent, by a winding path, which runs almost parallel with the zig-zag railway. The Nipper's pedal gave muchl trouble-almost every mile it required tightening. When dis mounted we had time to look around and down the gor...

CYCLING NOTES. -4--C Br RAEGCWOL. Tue run to Dandenang on Sunday was the most orderly and one of the best con ducted runs the Speedwell club have carried out during the year. Only a dozen members took part. A visit to a local fruit garden for an after-dinner dessert was not without incident, as some of our mnembers were received by the proprietress with a loaded gun, a welcome that they did not appreciate. The return journey, which was com pleted at 5.30, was n imarred by an accident to the "N:pper's" machine, which suddenly snapel, in the lead when 5 miles from Oakleigh.
