They can still skip stops in the Inner West, but there would be lesser to no time advantage. Just for crowd management.

Discolouration mostly comes from graffiti removal. Unfortunately something that can't be solved with a one-off expensive refurbishment.

Contracts often have spare carriages built into the contract, hence carriage totals may not be in multiples of 4 or 8.

Because taxpayers don’t subsidise enough of the business...

Actually makes sense, rather than delay the trains behind, to contain the issue and get the passengers off on platform 3 as happened there.

Would be nice if the graffiti smeg was blurred out.

According to the Government, the metro will solve this issue.

Patronage is already rapidly increasing at close to 10% a year. It appears Sydney Trains does not need to lower already 70-80% subsidised fares to appeal to more people.


S64 is today coupled en route with S99. S123 and S100 are separately in service also.

S28 is at FMC.

J Sets are the Hunter Railcars. As J is after H (I not used due the possibility of being mistaken with the number 1.

S92 now also added to the scrapheap.

Bankstown Line metro to free up a train or two.

These aren't really growth trains as they will (planned to) replace the remaining S Sets.

My thinking has always been the H Sets will then replace all K and C Sets, however this will be dependant o ...

No, I would wager the wrong set type was input into the system.

The plan is to use 2 sets during the day on weekdays and weekends to fulfil the fixed 30-minute frequency.

I am a bit concerned they will only end up transporting air but it is the chance to see if ...

M636C, by 24 S Sets, they mean 24 8-car sets (i.e: 48 4-car Sets).

This 'Warstah' order is a like for like replacement of the S Sets due to the new Intercity fleet not entering service as soon as w ...

Either you get S Sets or the services are cancelled. They are used when there are no other trains available and are usually seen in peak hour because, shock horror, that is the peak demand for trains.

There appears to be a 30 kph temporary speed restriction on that track at Redfern.

I don't travel over that track regularly but I recall   as recently as two months ago going over it there was a mi ...

Saw a 4 car set head north through Hornsby this arvo. I assume it's off for a refurb.
simstrain is correct, for driver training of the third track.

There isn't the demand to justify such an idea. The trains would be empty.
