No matter where they allocate sets, someone will have a whinge.
Sector 1 got the first OSCAR trains, running to and from the South Coast. They already have a sizeable Tangara fleet, which is going to be completely overhauled as the A-Sets come into service. From what I hear, the S-Sets will be removed from Sector 1 soon, making it a Tangara/OSCAR sector. What's to whinge about that? Sector 1 also has NO 6-car sets operating, while those in Sectors 2 and 3 have to put up with 6-car trains...
Sector 3 has all of the K-Sets, as well as plenty of OSCAR and Tangara trains. When the S-Sets are withdrawn, this will leave Sector 3 with a sizeable deficit in rolling stock - where does one think this rolling stock will come from? Possibly the huge PPP rolling stock contract currently being tested? Thus, Sector 3 would get a lot of A-Sets.
When the S-Sets are withdrawn, we will have an all air conditioned fleet operating in Sydney, all 8-car trains, and after the Tangaras are refurbished, a mostly modern and new fleet (excepting the C and K Sets, although they work perfectly fine, and are airconditioned, so that shouldn't be an issue to most commuters).
Some of you whinging mongrels need to move to a suburb with NO rail access, and rely on the bus system to get around, where buses sometimes don't turn up, or leak, or are freezing cold in winter and roastingly hot in summer. But nobody hears about THAT on the news, it's all whinging about CityRail, sometimes for no good reason.
One does get sick of reading the irate whinging from a bunch of people who like to say the government couldn't run a railway to save their careers, when they wouldn't know the first thing about running a railway themselves. Of course, they are happy to rant and rave about such minor things that don't matter in the long run. The main issue to the future is not who gets the newest train, it's about increasing capacity and relibility across the network as a whole.
