Doesn't help that there's been a renovation at the station that is now into the 3rd year of work!

All messed up right now around the city circle. Trains sitting for 10min plus at each station.

Interesting that is the priority initiatives, they're talking about an SSFL upgrade already to service Moorebank. From general observation it doesn't seem to be particularly heavily loaded right now.  ...

Extending the B-set order with another 17 units. This is to extend the fleet rather than replace K/C-sets.

Got my first B set peak-hour service out of Campbelltown this morning. B2 came through about 7:20-ish. Not sure if it was intentional to be on a peak service, or due to the crapfest of what happened t ...

No signs of them yet out here in the southwest. Haven't seen them in the yards or on any service runs in the early morning. There's supposed too be a couple of sets already in service as of 2 weeks ag ...

A decent heavy fall will have Wolli creek up and over the tracks around Bardwell Park and Turella for an hour or two as well. Didn't see anything like that today.

More pre-announcements of the extensions.  Looks like the general guesses of everyone were pretty spot on.
