I think it has reached the point that there would be very little benefit in opening this line before the scheduled 3 week shutdown of the Midland line.  Major bus route changes will take place when t ...

Does this have the potential for preservation groups to gain access to the main line?

Would it be worth the while to maybe reroute the Australind while the Armadale line is shut?  I’m thinking that it could possibly branch off at Mundijong and sent into Perth via Fremantle.  How lo ...

Yep, bring it on.  I took my daughter to Terminal 1 yesterday morning and then got robbed at the pay station of the car park. ($14.80 for under 45 minutes, the previous time I parked there I was “on ...

I’ll believe it when I see it.

Along the Midland line, the only level crossing between Perth and Bayswater is at Caledonian Avenue in Maylands.  I would imagine this crossing will have to come under review before the Ellenbrook lin ...

I had to run an errand to Claremont a couple of weeks ago and decided to go by train.  Hence I got to see the finished product (I didn’t get to travel down that way when the serious works were takin ...

How will they get the elevated railway to fit under the Leach Highway bridge?

Looking out of the train window is sufficient entertainment for me.  If travelling at night I can read a book or newspaper.

An article on ABC TV News last night stated that the first half of next year is wen the line will open.  Just as well there is no huge passenger demand for the airport at the moment.

Posted on the 1st of April I’m assuming?

Me and my family used this service last time we visited NSW in 2015.  Great value with the fares being  integrated with the rail service from Sydney. We did use Opal Cards for the duration of our st ...

Surely $200 000 wouldn't be too hard for the SA Government to find.

[quote=witzendoz]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.

Good on her.

I thought this practice was banned anywhere.  It's banned in WA, though that doesn't stop it from occuring of course.  I refuse to let anyone wipe my windows by simply putting my wipers on high if s ...
