NSW Trains, trading as NSW TrainLink or now known as NSW TrainLink?

I noticed the NSW Trains entry in Wikipedia has been changed to NSW TrainLink. NSW TrainLink is listed as a "government entity" and "Australian train operator".

Is NSW TrainLink with its "tennis" hop logo the actual name of the operator or is it just the public brand name as CountryLink is to RailCorp?

NSW Trains along with its Transport - NSW Trains waratah logo still seem to be used on formal/internal documents. Unless they are obsolete they would support the view that the real name of the operator is still NSW Trains and perhaps Wiki needs to be changed back.

NSW TrainLink is the corporate name and includes the CountryLink Trains/Coaches , NSW Trains is the name is the public operating name IIRC

My understanding is that Railcorp will remain as the owner of the tracks and trains and the operation and maintenance of the network will be taken over by Sydney Trains t/a Sydney Trains and NSW Trains t/a NSW Trainlink.

I think all three report directly to Transport NSW rather than Cityrail and Countrylink reporting to Railcorp as currently happens.

Will the XPTs, Xplorers and Endeavours be painted in NSW Trainlink livery?

I certainly hope so! I understand there are plans for the OSCars to change from blue to red/orange accordingly, so hopefully it's part of a wider roll out.

Another question. Will the Xplorers and Endeavours remain as two train types or will they become nearly homogenized into the one type?

The new structure seems to be an attempt to copy Victoria's rail. I just hope that NSW train link isn't an anti-Countrylink service measure.

I understand that in the short term, things will continue "as business as usual", only with different names and organisational structures.

The real changes will come in when the EBA is up for negotiation, I imagine...

RailCorp will cease to exist in time, only a hand full of staff and legal entity remaining for now.

Tracks and infrastructure, network control, maintenance staff etc will be owned/operated/maintained by Sydney Trains. Metropolitan CityRail is now Sydney Trains. (within Macarthur/Waterfall/Berowra/Emu Plains area)
Outer suburban CityRail and also CountryLink is now NSW TrainLink. Both fall under the Transport for NSW umbrella.

A bit confusing for all!

A dirty red XPT Wink But yeah, I agree, the current Countrylink livery was a job well done.

Why on earth would you think that when the reason for the change is to provide a better service to longer distance passengers?
