There were some good timelapse video and aerial shots of Hornsby changes on 7 news tonight. You can watch (low quality) here: https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/951351973437063168

Made me wonder if the desired tph increase is all about ensuring Chatswood doesnt overcrowd in the peak once the NW Metro starts operating.

Biggest complaints I've seen are around:

- increased use of S sets on T8

- longer travel times across the board due to increased dwell

- longer travel times for some Western Line stops to CBD, eg B ...

It looks like the major shutdown around Hornsby will be the first 2 weeks on January.

From Friday 29 December until Sunday 14 January:

There's another weekend closure of platforms 1-15 coming up on 21st-22nd October, but it looks like they'll unfortunately run the V-sets as empty trains between Central and North Sydney. The trackwork ...

Heads up anyone who wants to ride a V set over the harbour bridge, this weekend is your chance. Sydney Terminal is closed and Blue Mountains trains will instead use the suburban platforms at Central a ...

Signalling changes are planned between Waitara through to Asquith.

Any idea when the 2 week shut down will be? Original plans said January 2018 but that was when construction was meant to commence ...

Anyone know if there will be any V sets down the north shore line this weekend? All the trains I've checked that are normally V sets have been changed to Oscars.

Trackwork today between Hornsby and Epping, all Central Coast trains are diverted via Chatswood with only a single stop at Chatswood in both directions between Hornsby and Central. All V sets are repl ...

Looks like there might be some passenger services using it next weekend:

There will be a chance next weekend for the Anzac Day Dawn Service, but you will have to wake up early!

The 1:04am from Hamilton to Central will be a 4 car V set that will run via the North Shore,  ...

Transport NSW websites are saying there are extra services running for the vivid Sydney event, but I can't find a list of them anywhere. Everywhere just says 'extra trains' with no further information ...

I have also made complaints about the 6:45pm sydney to Wyong service and received the exact same response. When I pressed the issue they replied that when people realise the 6:45pm train is always ful ...

[quote]I would be disappointed if Opal doesn't ultimately become the only method. Melbourne has gone all Myki. London are removing cash sales from buses at least. There's no real reason to run two ...

As for your question about Woy Woy-City travel, Opal gives you the best possible fare as compared to MyTrain at least so I have no idea why you are so determined to avoid using it.

This handbook is new to me and quite an interesting, but a complicated read.

I have another question that hopefully someone can help me with, and could save me a lot of money!

Deducting for each trip would be madness, as some banks have hefty activity charges.


I think you fail to see it from her point of view, a regular customer who isn't a fanatic or overly ...

I'm not sure if this is true for all lines but this relates to the Newcastle and central coast line.

Ever since the new timetable launched there are very few 8 car services on weekends anymore, an ...

The oscars seem to be slowly replacing the intercity V sets on the Newcastle line. In the old timetable, the oscars only went as far as Wyong, and there were still lots of services to Gosford and Wyon ...

Does anyone know if you can get an opal card without having to pay the $40 up front? My sister is an occasional weekend user and was considering getting a card but she's been turned off by the minimum ...

In don't think that's quite right. On weekly and above you can get on or off at any station that's between the two stations printed on the ticket, and you can do it as much as you want during that wee ...

The Newcastle and Central Coast line is out for trackwork this weekend. Busses are replacing trains between Newcastle and Central, and I absolutely love it.

We get a coach service departing to and ...

Thanks everyone for your responses. I think there's some misunderstanding so I just wanted to clarify:

- I am a regular commuter from Gosford to Wynyard, and normally catch the peak hour Central Coas ...

Does anyone know why the Newcastle and Central Coast line trains that have been diverted via the North Shore line since Boxing Day are not stopping at wynyard and town hall stations?

The trains cr ...
