Newcastle Suburban Rail: Then and Now

A year and a half ago, I made a thread simply titled Why Newcastle listing the many suburban lines lost from the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie area and revealing how the truncation of the CBD line was just one line in a large issue.

I originally wanted to bump that thread but it wouldn't let me as everytime I tried to respond, I got the 'No post mode specified :: The phantom post mode was:' error, so if this new thread needs moving/combing, may a moderator or administrator please do so.

Anyway, here is a visual representation of the issue that is Newcastle and public transport:

I hope this sparks curiosity and discussion.
To start with, how practical would it be to rebuild these lost lines and add some much needed intermediate stations?


NOTE: I will upload images directly to the post when I find out what a suitable image hosting website is

We know about the CBD line, but my topic is about ALL the suburban rail services lost in Newcastle/Lake Macquarie throughout the 20th century, and if it would be practical to rebuild them, and add more intermediate stations (even the existing lines need new intermediate stations, the lines pass through major centres with no stations).

Where is the preferred place for me to upload my images?
