::South Coast Line::
One Major Change that should be made to the South Coast Line Is that the services/trips should be adjusted to be simplified and easy to understand & Use. Here's how to improve them.
-One of my My Main complaints for this line is that the South Coast line only goes to Bondi Junction/Martin Place of Peak hours, & other selected times yet on Weekends it operates to/from Bondi Junction all-day tats just not fair for Weekdays why can't South Coast services go to/from Bondi unction all-day on weekdays too?
-During Weekday off-peaks & Weekends. There should be 2 south coast line trains heading to/from the city per hour per direction and not just one per hour for each direction.
-There should be two types of South Coast services each operating 1 trip per hour per direction (2 per hour if you count both of them.) Here's how the two types of South Coast line services.
*Port Kembla-Bondi junction services operates All-stops between Port Kembla all the way through to Waterfall Then only at Sutherland, Hurstville, Wolli Creek, Redfern, Central, then all-stops to Bondi Junction. They act as an Extension of the current Port Kembla Services. They be operated by Oscar trains only.
*Kiama-Central Limted Stops services operates All-stops between Kiama and North Wollongong, then only at Thirroul, Helensburgh. Waterfall, Sutherland, Hurstville, Woili Creek, & Central. They would no longer operate to Martin Place and Bondi Junction. As those kind of trips will be handled by the New port Kembla Services instead. The Kiama services would be operated by Oscar trains and some Intercity V Set Trains.
-On Peak hours Each Service type will operate 2 trips per hour per direction(4 trips per hour if both of them count.) Of course Port Kembla-Bondi Junction peak hour services will also stop at Sydenham, Penshurst, Mortdale, Penhurst, Loftus, Engadine, Heathcote, etc.
-The Bomaderry-Kiama(Norwa Regional services) will now act as its own Regional Line rather then as a part of the South Coast Intercity Line. It should be called the Norwa line and will be colored Dark Green/Sage with Grey coloured stops. It will still be apart of the South Coast line Timetable though.
::Southern Highlands Line::
-All Southern Highland train services should always operate to/from the City(Central). To always provide a quick services between the City and the Southern Highlands and perhaps even Campbelltown & Macarthur. (May also stop at Glenfield)
-The bus services that operate between Moss Vale and Goulburn should be replaced by Extended Train services. operating much quicker then the bus trips. Also The Weekday Trains that go from Moss Vale to Goulburn should be adjusted to be merged with the Campbelltown-Moss Vale services.
-2 new weekday services should be provided per directed to allow this line to operate on an Hourly frequency. Same goes for weekends and have its times adjusted to allow this service to operate on a hour and a half frequency.(Can still operate every hour to the city on the AM Peak and from the city on the PM Peak.)
::Blue Mountians Line::
-Like the South Coast line The Blue mountains Line should have its services adjusted to allow 2 services per hour instead of Just 1 service per hour most of the time. There would be two types of Blue mountain services.
*Katommba-City-North Sydney services operate All-stops between Katoomba and Penrith then only at Blacktown, Westmend, Parramatta, Granville, Strathfield, Redfern, Central, then all-stops to North Sydney. They can provide a Daily city connection to the Blue Mountains. And this type of service will be operated by OSCAR Trains allow them to be common on the Blue Mountians Line but just up to Katommba.
*Lithgow-Central Limited stops services. Operates all-stops between Lithgow & Wentworth Falls, Then only at Lawson, Springwood, Blaxland, Glenbrook, Emu Plains, Penrith, Blacktown, Parramatta, Strathfield, & Central. They will act as a Quicker to get to the Blue Mountions(Katoomba in Peticular.) And provide extra services to Lithgow. They will be operated by Intercity V Set trains only.
-There should be a new Regional line that would connect with the Blue Mountains line at Lithgow called the Bathurst line. It shall Mainly travel between Bathurst and Lithgow operating every 2 hours per direction, It will also stop at Tarana & Rydal stations but only on passenger demand. Much like Zig Zag & Bell stations. This Regional Line will be colored Dark brown with grey Colored stops.
-The Coach bus services operating between Mt Victoria & Oberon should have its timetable shown on the Blue mountains line Timetable much like the Coach bus services between Lithgow & Bathurst.
::Newcastle & Central Coast line::
-The times should be adjusted to have a more balanced frequency and most of all combine the Newcastle-Morisset shuttle services with the Wyong-Central all-stop intercity services into one 3-hour long service that connects with all the stations throughout the Central Coast and Newcastle regions all-day. Same can be said for services that operate only between Newcastle and gosford or Wyong to Gosford shuttle services.
-Times should be adjusted on weekdays to allow the services to operate on a fair frequency. So at telarah & Maitland there would always be a service heading to newcastle every 30 minutes(Or 20-15 minutes on peak hours) And between Newcastle and Warabrook(Uni) there would always be service heading to Maitland every 30 minutes(Or 20-15 minutes on peak hours).
And those are the network changes that i think would improve the network. What do you guys think? Please post a comment below.
