Is there a problem with the times on this forum as the last post about Richmond line shows as 12:37?
No, that post I made was at 13:37. I moved the subsequent threads into that one. I'd adjust your DST time setting though.
Services on the Richmond Branch are now suspended:
Western Line - Part suspended
Trains are suspended on the Richmond Branch Line between Riverstone and Schofields in both directions due to severe weather causing a power surge that is affecting signalling equipment at Riverstone. Buses are operating between Riverstone and Schofields in both directions instead. A shuttle train is operating between Riverstone and Richmond. Passengers are advised to allow extra travel time.
I was on the train in the first carriage. We had just left Goulburn station heading to Sydney. The train had just started to gain speed when suddenly I could hear the train horn. *edit* The train had then stopped suddenly and a train driver had come out of the 'driver's room'. He then left the train. After a few minutes he came back on and announced a fatality. The police, ambulance and SES were called and after waiting for 2 hrs on the train, we climbed out and had to walk along the tracks until a coach picked us up. *edit* [color=#ff3333:336cbdabdd]Post edited by MattAustin to remove potentially disturbing details.[/color:336cbdabdd]
Reports are correct, going to be one of those nights...
Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line - Delays
Some trains on the Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line are up to 15 minutes late due to urgent signal repairs at Kings Cross.
Newcastle & Central Coast Line - Delays
Some trains on the Newcastle & Central Coast Line are running up to 15 minutes late following a train requiring mechanical repairs at Wondabyne earlier.
Reports the above delay was caused by a "rock slide".
