Back in 2011 I asked the same question Here https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p1726896.htm#1726896  Not criticising you for asking again but you might like to read the answers.

The bus drivers can also be more flexible and drop people off along the route not at railway stations, closer to home, more visible location etc improves safety.

I suppose the dream is that one day passenger trains will run south of Fremantle to maybe Coogee or even Cockburn Central.  Plenty of people live down that way now.  The history of the line is that th ...

It would make sense that if the future was for permanent 6 car trains to order them that way, only having 2 cabs for every six cars must work out cheaper then having 2 redundant cabs.

What crossover is that?

There is a narrow gauge / standard gauge crossover near the South Freo power station, it is a left over from the old Robb's Jetty freight terminal da ...

I think it would be a backward infrastructure move to not have a narrow gauge connection between Fremantle and Cockburn, I know there has not been much traffic since the end of grain loading at Freman ...

John Holland are currently constructing a loop at Spearwood, this will enable train crossings in the Cockburn Junction - Fremantle section.

If you wanted to live in Fremantle, I don't think there are many places as close as this block of townhouses, especially the one at the Pillimore st end LOL?

Does anyone know why the Fremantle line is closing completely?  They can have trains running between West Leederville and Fremantle.  Is it because there is other work on the Fremantle Line being carr ...

That's it! I was thinking it was the old orange dmu's but it was the silver ones, unless both were used at some stage? I did ride along there a few times while it was on.

I remember riding in an old diesel railcar along the line from south beach to Fremantle during the cup, being run as a shuttle, AEC? ADG? Type, can never remember which is which. I used to call them a ...

My guess is for the capacity. 3 cars of the B series can hold more people than 4 cars of the A series.

I had a quick look on Google maps my idea is just a guesstimate, but highly likely if you look at it, the PTA try to avoid having suburban + freight trains on the ...

When you think about it, there is no reason it could not work with just a double track, with correct time tableing of freight outside peak hour passenger trains there is plenty of capacity.
