•Forrestfield-Airport Link will require a new ‘all-stops’ timetable to run services
•Transperth Train Operations have agreed to implement the new timetable in mid-2019 ahead of Forrestfield-Airport Link services
So the express trains are being removed from the Fremantle line, so the time travelling to work has increased? This must be an incentive to use the train to work in the city, NOT.My understanding is that the Airport trains will continue through Perth on to the Fremantle line. The first story I heard is that they will terminate at Daglish where there is already a siding in place which can accommodate the turn arounds. I have since heard that they might even have them terminating at Claremont (which doesn't have a turning facility at this stage). So if these trains are going to traverse the Fremantle line part of the way, it seems that timetable adjustments are needed so that the Airport services can be slotted in to the schedule. I'm thinking that these services will run express or semi-express (though that's just me assuming so). Some platform extensions might be required if they are going to be running as six car sets, but good luck with extending Subiaco's platforms.
How does the removal of the express Fremantle line have anything at all to do with the airport line?
