Why would anybody catch that train for. If it was an express that reduced travel times to/from Liverpool then that makes sense but why would you force the people of Liverpool on to another slow all stops service for. There are already enough of those as it is.

The service isn’t meant for people to travel from Liverpool to City Via East Hills, it is to increase train services at stations between Revesby and Liverpool and provide better connections from the East Hills area to Liverpool. Also it would increase services between Cabramatta and Lidcombe Via Regents Park. People who want to travel from Liverpool to the city can catch the City Circle Via Granville. It’s like the City Circle, you wouldn’t catch a train from Strathfield to the Airport Via the City Circle, it would be much faster to get off at Central and change. People travelling from Strathfield to the Airport wouldn’t benefit much from the service but people travelling from Strathfield to the City or the city to the airport will benefit from this. I hope you understand now.

This extension will not slow down journey times for anyone, it will only provide additional services and new connections.

Other than the fact that Liverpool would have extra services and direct services to the East Hills area, there may not be other benefits from this but other stations will benefit from this. You have to keep in mind that this is not just about Liverpool.

Nope too slow and not necessary. We can already connect to the East Hills via a change at Glenfield. We don't need a direct connection to any station on the east hills line.
