What? As in the third platform?!

Does anybody know what was the exact safety (?) issue that has kept it un-used for so many years?

I've heard that the Z cars are currently getting new bogies machined in New Zealand. No idea if it's true or not.

Past by their use-by date yes, they are 40 years old. However, the W-class trams are 73 years old, making them even older than the Harris trains.

Westall does not have a single train scheduled to run through platform 3, at least on weekedays. It's possible that some freight trains run that route, but I don't have any such evidence.
