Western line over the Blue Mountains open now ?

 
  BDA Chief Commissioner

Location: Sydney
I believe the western line was shut due to fire damage to the infrastructure in the Blue Mountains . Word is its opening again but not sure about for electric traction .
I wonder if TFNSW will rebuild the overhead supply systems past Mt Victoria as they seem to be itching to can electric trains between there and Lithgow .

Just got relieved off the IP, the outgoing crew reckon its staff working for freight only (ie no electrics).

Word is that the overhead is being repaired.

As I mentioned elsewhere all freights now working over the mountains and passengers including the IP and Dubbo XPT and Broken Hill Explorers. Bathurst Explorer still out and the the electrics only to Mt Victoria until 8th November. Until I saw some photos today I did not realize the extent of the damage caused by the fire.

Full V set services during AM & PM peaks but buses at other times between Lithgow and Mt Vic. All other non-electric services running. Times are adjusted to allow for safe working procedures.
