Rail Manufacturing in Australia, good or bad ?

Only the qld rolling stock is a stuff up.

Widening the loading gauge in the blue mountains will bring it inline with the rest of the sydney trains loading gauge.

The light rails problems have nothing at all to do with where the rolling stock was made. It is purely to do with all the crap that was underneath sydney's streets, poor planning and issues with ausgrid who have been causing major headaches with this project from day one.

FEDERAL OPPOSITION PLEDGES TO STRENGTHEN RAIL MANUFACTURING

It would be good to ensure more manufacturing for rail was Australian based as is the case I think in Victoria where trains are manufactured.  Queensland still produces rolling stock I believe?

Strange how VLocity manufacturing in Victoria had no issues like this:

– NSW’s $2 billion Intercity Fleet ordered from South Korea but was too wide to fit through tunnels in the Blue Mountains.

It doesn't matter how its spun Simstrain...it's still spin. ..Smile

Your point DD? A Vlocity is skinnier than a Sprinter and fit just fine on the Bendigo line, even if it was double track.

It isn't a stuff up. The work on the blue mountains brings it in to line with the rest of the network. One train that does all intercity services and can handle the extra capacity requirements that is required. The blue mountains hasn't been able to handle any wide body trains pass springwood. These upgrades remove this limitation.

The new LR vehicles on the new sydney network have had no issues and have been testing for some time on the limited amount of track available. The problem again has come down to the construction and all the stuff that was found and which delayed work and not where the units were made as suggested.
