Cityrail Service Interuptions - NOW WITH ADDED TRACKWORK!

 
  G Train Locomotive Driver

Apparently it’s a minor derailment on the Up as the Down morning Canberra Explorer has come through Moss Vale. All Moss Vale - Campbelltown trains  in both directions suspended for the moment with buses being arranged. Us Sydney bound passengers will apparently be squeezed onto the Up morning Canberra Explorer... Let’s see how this goes.

Finally under way from Moss Vale just after 10:20. Just passed the points at Braemar where the empty concrete sleeper train had at least the bogies on the leading wagon off the rails. Obviously we’re working through wrong road.

Over & out.

In a different form of service disruption.  A truck carrying railway detonators has rolled on the M7 and closed it down while the bomb squad clean up the mess!

I'm assuming this goes here since its trackwork related.

Since Penrith services are via Bankstown, would that mean the driver would have to get off at Lidcombe to swap driver cabs in order for the train to continue on to Auburn? Since I'm pretty sure trains from T3 coming into Lidcombe face towards the city, and Auburn is going away from the city. Just curious.

Isn't the loop still there bypassing Lidcombe? No mention of Lidcombe in the timetable you have posted. I have not been out that way for a few years. Back in the 1980's I regularly caught the train from Springwood to Regents Park in the morning when I worked at Bankstown. Then I once caught the Summer Sunday morning train that started at Penrith and went all the way via Bankstown to Cronulla. They used the loop from Auburn to Berala.

Oh yeh you're right. Never realised that there was a track that connected Auburn and Berala.

[color=#000000][size=2][font=Roboto, wf_SegoeUI, "Segoe UI", Segoe, "Segoe WP", Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]There's been a derailment at Campbelltown, resulting in delays. Platform 3 has a K set parked at it with about the leading carriage or two past the Macarthur end of the platform Trailing set is K79. I'm guessing that is the problem train.[/font][/size][/color][color=#000000][size=2][font=Roboto, wf_SegoeUI, "Segoe UI", Segoe, "Segoe WP", Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif][size=2]
