The project website has no information about th ...

Opal readers have started appearing at stations north of Chatswood. Noticed them at Asquith this arvo.

Saw V8 (I think, from memory) sitting in HMC sidings this morning.

Wasn't quick enough to get a picture unfortunately.

Previously: Hurlstone Park -> St Leonards
