I love how the media breathless say something is a secret then publish it.

Don’t get excited Matt, as has been pointed out this is a discussion forum, it’s all hot air, nothing will be decided here. It’s just a few people shooting the breeze  in the pub.

[quote=Transtopic]This discussion is all irrelevant, because the system is going to be upgraded to 24tph, regardless of whatever objections you want to throw up. It's pointless in rabbitting on about ...

There is a lot of talk about the need for a fast connection from the CBD to the WSA. I don’t believe it will be necessary. I live close to the CBD, but I won’t consider any flights from WSA. The a ...

Trans, as far as I can tell, your whole scenario requires the hurstville crossover and a new one for the locals to access the Illawarra dive. Why didn’t they announce this new one at the same time a ...

Probably need to be tested on all lines, but that doesn’t mean that they will operate on all lines in the near future.

The main reason for fixed seating is the current impact requirements, its extremely difficult (expensive) to design a seat that can protect its occupant if it also has to flip over. Flip over seats is ...

No they won’t use the electric power on foreign systems ( Vic and QLD) The answer is in the FAQ in the facts sheet.

It’s a long night, doesn’t get to Bathurst until 4.51am and includes an almost 30 minute change at Lithgow , possible the coldest place in NSW. Got to be keen to do that trip.

According to the STNs there are supposed to be 17 in service (runs 60-69) plus 32 & 33. 44-45-46, 83 & 90)

Apart from S sets on Carlingford and Olympic Park line S sets are now only on runs 14 17& 18 ...

He wrote the 25 on the 23 because he is looking ahead to Monday. The plans for service are formulated a few days in advance and he knows what will happen on Monday.

15 rostered, the usual 60-69 as well as 32,33 44, 83 & 90.

Probably a ...

Now we’re getting there.

As well as the normal 10 runs covered (60-69). This morning there are two new ones 83 and 90, giving a total of 12 Bs out and about.

Run 66 is finally a B. So now 10 are regularly covered.

Confirmed run 63 was a B from today, so now 9 runs are regularly covered by Bs on weekdays.

Although the government announced that 12 are in service, only 8 are on the tracks each weekday ( 5 at weekends, was 4 before oz day). 4 being held back for maintenance during the week appears a high  ...
