Could this be enough people to finally get the line electrified from Campbelltown to Canberra?! I wonder!
The Australian Government's promise, was to electrify the line from Campbelltown to Canberra as soon as it see's increasing amount of passengers using the service, it was mentioned back well before I was born some time in the 1970s era "early or late" not sure exactly!
Would be shamed if the V Set's are scraped now! They would come in handy once the electrification is completed, lets not leave out Kiama to Bomaderry (Nowra) electrification it is needed
Instead of the NSW Government "Restoring" the tramways in Sydney! Wasting billions of dollars with some UN-Australian company, electrification should have been completed back in the early 1980s for both rail corridor's "Campbelltown to Canberra" and "Kiama to Bomaderry (Nowra)" they say it was too expensive to electrify the Kiama to Bomaderry (Nowra) rail corridor back in 2014! But they wasted enough money on
Cutting the Newcastle rail corridor at Hamilton
Ripping down the entire Sydney monorail system
Restoring partial tramways in Sydney
Converting the Bankstown rail corridor into metro standards "Sydney doesn't need metro, the historical railways should be left as is - Canberra needs metro, not tramways"
Got new trains that can't even fit over the Blue Mountains line (More money to fix the tunnels, bridges and platforms to make the new trains fit)
All a complete waste of money when the rail corridor's "Campbelltown to Canberra" and "Kiama to Bomaderry (Nowra)" could have been electrified for less
And why is there still NO rail corridor to Manly and Mona Vale?!!!
