Easter Show Running

 
  darcyj Chief Train Controller

Three weeks to the start of the Royal Easter Show, which is typically served by extra direct trains from Central and, on weekends, direct trains from Blacktown and some from the Central Coast. How long before those timetables appear?

They don't - They appear as an STN with an announcement regarding it on the Sydney Trains site. Last year it was only weekends for direct SYD-OLP and Blacktown (Not sure of the code) - OLP trains.

Incorrect Ben,

There will be, as in every year, DIRECT services every day of the show from SYD to OLY runing as run numbers SXXX
Weekends, Public Holidays, and VERY limited weekdays, Direct services from BTN to OLY running as run numbers BXXX
Central Coast and Blue Mountains direct services will most likely have a 200 series run number as like last year, were run by oscars.

Wouldn't the BlueMountains be 500 series? Confused

500 series are Exchange Cars and A Set testing trains

I believe Blackadder was referring to V Set runs which are numbered as W5xx.

Yes plus thinking of the numbering under the previous SWTT where the Suburban (H and T) services to/from the Mountains carried the 5xx series.
