[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 ...

It's all in here: http://images.smh.com.au/file/2014/01/29/5115403/1_Futurerailplan.pdf?rand=1390985051657

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 ...

There is no doubt that a new harbor crossing needs to be constructed starting right after the NWRL, with all planning done and ready to go at that time.There are currently 15tph in the peak hour from  ...

The gold coast is a city in it's own rightYour point?If you are saying this then you obviously have ignored everything I have said re centers...I don't think you quite understand my idea of distribute ...

Page 2-4 (in the chapter 'Clarifications'): In line with the NWRL, an upgrade of the Epping to Chatswood Rail Link to a high capacity rapid transit system would be required as a separate project to t ...

Thanks for another really thought provoking post.  Making me rethink my SD vs DD arguments.The run time performance gains of Rapid Transit are down to better acceleration/deceleration and I expect th ...

Before I start though: good work.  Really good work.  You've covered a lot of bases.  There are a few things I'd still like to check before I really sink the boot in, but lets start with this lot . ...

I think they just they've just ignored how to deal with the inner west.  They've made it very clear they are going to run 20 tph along the airport line, and the airport line can't turn trains through ...

I have been thinking quite a bit about how to handle the Blue Mountains trains as these are the main complication with the 1 branch strategy for the Western to North Shore line. These are the things I ...

Just thinking about the extra 14 trains promised for the western line under this plan. My understanding is that is gained firstly from adding 6tph to the existing 14tph for the Western/ North Shore li ...

The main thing was that I was fishing for seats, which I believed to be vitally important for the longer runs. I will admit this was a answer I've created and tried to find a question to - in my defen ...

I paid the NWRL centre a visit today, and I got some interesting documents. Essentially, the bits to be eaten will be Rouse Hill via Macquarie Park and Victoria Cross, the new Harbour Tunnel, MetroPit ...

lol. if the trains can run at 160km/h full time between Westmead and Redfern then the goverment can pay for all the network upgrades on the current list.
