Passengers are also advised to listen to announcements and check indicator boards at stations.

Well that explains why there was a green tarp from the stairs at platform 3 to the train.

My train was held at Parramatta station for about 20 mins, which I didn't mind because the guard kept everyone informed but some people need to learn to listen to announcements. People were complaining because the trains were delayed and not stopping at Seven Hills!!!

Just drove along the GWH at springwood but couldn't see front of the train "blocking the line" at springwood. All I could see was that it was a coal train and the end of it is at Springwood station. Would not wanting to be doing the HSC today!!

Just after I posted this I saw 2 Eastbound V-sets so I don't know why it said in both directions? Maybe a lack of rolling stock or drivers further west?
