Someone resurected this thread after 12 years?!

The extra red lights were only there to be used should one of the usual ones fail.  So if a globe blew they could still show two red lights, just not ...

You "turn it off" people.  And "back in my day we didn't have phones, we used tin cans and string":  The world has moved on.  If full phone/data coverage isn't provided in tunes people will just drive ...

Another unusual situation is Redfern Platform 10 which is in an unpaid area yet can have trains departing from it.

Before the Eastwood stop is removed there would need to be an analysis of how many people travel between Eastwood  and Hornsby and points North.  Eastwood still attracts a lot of shoppers due to the ...

Both SMR 18 trips (4th and 25th of March) have now been cancelled by 3801 Limited.  Announcement is on http://www.3801limited.com.au/

I have just been advised that the SMR 18 will not be at the Australian Technology Park on Saturday 25, 2012 as planned.  The locomotive is suffering from mechanical problems and will not come down t ...

When there are Cityrail trains departing from platforms 1 - 3 the station staff are meant to open the exit gates from the paid area that's located near platform 3 - you basically stay within the paid ...

On a slightly different topic but I'm confused rather than angry. I bought a one-way ticket at Wynyard, put my ticket into the barrier and got a train to Central. Upon arrival at Central I bought some ...

If the original poster feels hard done by and believes that under the circumstances the fine should not have been issued they can always take the matter to court.  The magistrate may dismiss the fine ...

Positive experience.  I was on the train and talking to someone on my mobile phone.  Transit Officer went past checking tickets.  I went to put the phone down and take my ticket out of my wallet bu ...

Sydney's trains have been getting slower and slower for years - this is well-documented, much written about and now even has international attention from overseas visitors (e.g. urbanrail.net). I've b ...

How far in advance can you buy monthly and quarterly train tickets?  I'm getting conflicting answers from ticket sellers at stations.  One of them said you can buy them a week in advance (as per  ...

 Thats true but maybe I was off the mark when I said the pensioner discount should be increased to $ 10.

I still stand by original arguement that it should be raised slightly and the entitlement are ...
