That's a Tram every 4 minutes between Circular Quay and Moore Park, in each direction. Maybe that's why they've reduced the Shuttle serv...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

Many BMT and CCN line services this afternoon peak are 4 carriages only due to what I calculate as 5-6 8-car sets being unavailable due to "an operational issue at Flemington Maintenance Centre" - anyone know what this may have been?
