AndyV, because they are meant to be interurban
, NOT suburban trains. They already take almost 3 hours for a semi-express, and just over for slower train via North Shore. And besides, you will have the large crowds at Wynyard & Town Hall getting on, even if their was a passenger restriction at Wynyard & Town Hall.
No AndyV, the insulting thing is that people use these interurban trains as suburban trains. And as others have said, non-stopping trains are restricted to 10kmh through underground platforms.
And it should be set down to Central & pick up from Central at Chatswood.
Now if they could just run some
of the expresses to a similar stopping pattern as the trackwork bus route, Route 300. (ie: no stopping between Broadmeadow & Hornsby!)
So they don't go through the ECRL then?
The trackwork calender said they were at first, but that was changed to go via the whole North Shore.
If they don't change it again, the trackwork calender states they are due to go via Macquarie Park sometime in March 2014.
