Passenger train disruptions caused by freight train breakdowns up by more than 60 per cent
The inland rail link could fix some of the problem. Trains would then be able to bypass the sydney area and heading north south or west. It is the cause of the breakdown which intrigues me. Could this be poor maintenance of locomotives?
Finally, when the 86 class worked trains between Newcastle and Sydney were there an equivilent number of breakdowns on Cowan Bank?
