This page has a vague mention of a new alignment from Menangle to Yerrinbool (no date or money attached though): [url=https://caportal.com.au/tfnsw/tiip/pipeline]https://caportal.com.au/tfnsw/tiip/pip ...

People definitely don’t board and alight A and B sets 3 at a time. The wide doors just allow 2 at a time despite people standing at the sides of the doors.

It’s also clear from experience and t ...

Platform screen doors in the CBD will be what enables it to get to 24tph - Not only the shorter separation between trains of ATO, but also the faster (and importantly - more consistent) entry and exit ...

Page 6 mentions 2020 bushfires and COVID-19.

The Erskineville crossovers have already been installed - wires and signals are next.

But the stations that need it (Town Hall, Wynyard in particular) will never see the D sets (presumably).

Let's simplify things and say that headway is determined by 2 things - dwell at stations and gap between trains.

Improving either of those things will improve headway. Train and station design can  ...

Nah, the new numbers are 18tph T2 and 18tph T8. Perfectly balanced. No need to mess it up with T4 locals.

The new crossovers north of Erskineville mean that the South Coast services will run on the ...

[quote=jkennedy2]Does anyone know any details of the new Pitt St station? Specifically:

From the video fly troughs and documentation I have worked out the following as far as planned configuration of the trains:

[quote=davesvline]An interesting observation.

Before we write off the seemingly useless benefits of a 3rd from Caulfield to say Springvale, lets first discontinue use of the centre track between B ...

I very much doubt that the existing timetable wasn't written with the SWRL services just ready to slot in pretty easily.

Expect to see South line terminators/starters (4tph in peak) extended to Lep ...

I have done a bit of analysis on the Macarthur to City via East Hills services.

Once again, as per the Liverpool to City via Bankstown/Granville services, there is never an advantage in letting a s ...

With the split of trains from Liverpool via Bankstown and via Granville, there is currently 3 minutes slower to travel to Central via Bankstown, and the via Bankstown services are 3 minutes behind the ...
