Just to throw in my penny's worth, I still maintain that T1 should become a single all stations pattern from Berowra to Central after the ATP/ATO upgrade.  Ron Christie said as much, commenting that t ...

[quote=nswtrains][quote]The initial D-set order was for 512 cars, comprising 77x4 car sets and 34x6 car sets. That was subsequently increased by another 42 cars to 554 with 21 of the 4 car sets being ...

[quote=RTT_Rules][quote][quote]Why? Chatswood was reduced to two platforms in the 90's and basically operated this way since. Only opened to four for ECRL.

Lindfield is now being used because the M ...

Wrong. 8 car trains will also be run according to D set car markers placed up the mountains line.

[quote=Transtopic]

My view is that more CC trains will run to ST via Strathfield instead, bearing in mind that there is spare capacity on the Main and the ST yard is being reconfigured to allow an ...

[quote=simstrain][quote]There is ample capacity on the 2 track pairs west of Parramatta to run more services. At present, it's 22tph (excluding the T2 Parramatta services), when it has a potential ca ...

[quote=djf01]

What I have in mind is tripling, probably with another road north of the current alignment, Chatswood to Hornsby and St Leonards to Chatswood, with a quad and turnback capability at St ...

[quote=simstrain]

Outer T2 is completely fudged. With every service having to be all stops that means 1 hour and 15 minute journeys from Liverpool to the Sydney CBD. This is why I think the metro sho ...

Longer B's increase capacity by 20% *without* ATO and without amplification. Ds offer w ...

[quote=djf01][quote]I don't get your point about increasing capacity on the Western Line by diverting more CC services via the North Shore. The demand from T1, T2, T9 and BM and CCN Intercity on the ...

There is no need for it capacity wise, at least not on the North Shore. It's entirely about performance, and the about using the North Shore route to increase available capacity on the main west witho ...



I was thinking Liverpool.

[quote]However, I can see a future for a Western Express style service on T1 utilising the 10 car D-sets from Penrith to Sydney Terminal via the Western Main as a segment of the BM Inte ...

[quote=simstrain]Stations with intercity services do already have those 200m stations as DJF suggested and it is probably time for the government to consider more of these intercity services instead o ...

Dear Administrators,

I am continually frustrated by losing my posts when composing an extended response which is timed out when I submit, with the message "no post mode specified".  I have never en ...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that there are speed restrictions on the existing track between Joppa Junction and Canberra because of its relatively sub-standard condition. As RTT and simstrai ...

[quote=simstrain]PSD's are not going on to any station platform that isn't a metro or in the city. You might get some gates that are positioned at the yellow line to protect people, wheelchairs and pr ...
