A set leaving Fremantle just departed on the wrong track, left Fremantle on the track from Perth, at slow speed heading towards crossover at north freo. Don't know what's up at this stage.

There wa ...

With the Thornlie line extended to Cockburn, it would require an extra platform at Cockburn to turn back the trains through Thornlie, as the platforms at Cockburn are too busy to handle more trains.   ...

Some 3 car B sets on the Fremantle line tonight?

A lot of "out of service" trains were turned back through Fremantle early this morning (Sunday), anyone know why this was going on?

The Transperth live train time page, which I find very useful, shows number of cars for each train so you can work out if it's a A set or B set. But it only shows the next 6 trains or so.  Good site i ...

There was a train through in the morning, I saw it while waiting for the plumber to turn up, but is may have been after 9am, apart from the 4.30am one again LOL.

Regarding the curfew, I am of the o ...

As someone that lives close to the freight line, there are trains quite a few times a day.  There seems to be busy periods and quiet periods through the week, the other day we had a train into the por ...

This may be the wrong thread if so sorry, the last signal before Fremantle station has a display for which road is set.  When the train is going into the main platform 1 it has "P" displayed, but when ...

I spotted the B Sets running in and out of Freo last night and wondered what was going on, I think the first one arrived at about 9.30pm. Nice to see them in Freo, they do sound different when you are ...

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.

There is a picture of the actual Freo train at http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/smoke-no-fire-public-transport-authority-denies-freo-train-flames-20141028-11d2if.html

I did see this happen last ye ...

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.

Some friends of mine own this, if it fits the budget?  South Fremantle, fright line 1 street away, free clipper bus in/out dero, fremantle train on hand for the city, or anywhere

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.
