Central:

Wasn't there a historical drama/movie filmed there recently?

Apparently:
DID YOU KNOW??? Milli Vanilli’s “Blame It On The Rain†was actually a reference to the band’s experiences relying on CityRail.

Episode 1&2, Season 5 of All Saints centred on a train crash which was filmed in the City Circle tunnels, but the location was not disclosed on air. St James was used as the station nearest the crash, but was referred to as "St Harolds Station". Most of the St James Platform signs were covered up by "refreshments" signs.

I didn't realise they'd "renamed" Olympic Park station to Young Modern Station (the title of the album is Young Modern). I prefer their live performance of this song on Rove so hadn't really watched the video much.

I like how as the second chorus (which is louder than the first) kicks in a silver set appears in the background going through the station.

Abesty1, is that the episode where the woman got coupled-up?

Wildside (ABC 1997-1998) mightn't have had scenes at stations but it did use V sets departing Sydney as a backdrop. It also had scenes in and around Eveleigh and fatality scenes alongside the main line nearby.

More recently, there was Clive the slightly too loud commuter.

Fixed seats, unopenable windows- Yes.

From the BusAustralia thread,

There was a Rescue special ops(season two ep 11) was filmed at St James and in the tunnel at Lavender by if I recall with an L set. St James was called Park West I think.
The start had some bloke wander into the tunnel. Train driver saw him, threw it into emergency and the train came to a stop throwing passengers and seats all over the place and somehow bringing down the overhead.

'Icehouse - No Promises' features a bit of CityRail. From 1:25, Vineyard Station is featured, with a candy liveried diesel train also seen. And again at 3:05. Not to mention, they are also filmed on roads around the area, with what looks to be Bandon Rd featuring prominently.

Also, we discussed about 'The One', a psychic show on Channel 7 which broadcast in October, last year in The Lounge. It involved psychics on a Newcastle/Wyong train looking for a a criminal or something like that.

Which ones do you think are funny? I can see that are trying to do something here by omitting part of my post to suit your intentions. I added in a line separating where you failed to differentiate.

Actually that was simply me mangaling the code for quotes but if you wish to accuse me of doing something go right ahead it's your party. I'll go back to lurking now seeing as you apparently run the forums and are lord of all you pervey. Just so it's not all off topic the lyrics for this song reference cityrail in various ways.
