Some transport geekery pics

A few pics from recent days.

It’s kind of nice that the Tourist “Shuttle” bus gives tourists the thrill of a hook turn

Plaques in Melbourne Central (formerly Museum) Station near the main (Swanston Street) entrance
Melbourne City Loop MURLA plaques

…Alas, you can’t read the tiny names unless you click through to the giant size — in particular the oddly miniscule names of the dignitaries on the middle one are:

His Excellency The Governor of Victoria
Sir Henry Winneke K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., O.B.E., K.St.J., Q.C.

The Premier
The Honourable R.J. Hamer, E.D., M.L.A.

The Minister of Transport
The Honourable R.R.C. Maclellan, M.L.A.

Hmm yeah okay, maybe the font is so small on those so they could fit in all of Sir Henry’s honours and appointments.
