Pre-ECRL (2008 timetable)
- All stop services Horn - Eastwood, then West Ryde, Strathfield then City (20 mins intervals)


These limited stop services also ran every 15 minutes.

Unlikely if they are heading for the CBD and will have to change again at Chatswood for the next 5 years.

I would suspect most people were St Leonards/Nth Syd/Wynyard bound anyway.

Probably still faster via metro + interchanging at Chatswood, than running virtually all stops to Strathfield.

I doubt it if travelling to the CBD, where most people are likely to be destined. It's still all stops from Chatswood to the CBD. Why would you bother in interchanging twice and be faced with the inevitable interchange congestion at Chatswood? After extension of the metro to the CBD, then that's a different matter.

I think Channel 9 might be a bit confused with the timetable changes.

There has also been some noise in the media about 4 car South Coast services from Central at 15:24 and 15:54. Some have suggested using carriages from trains that won't be running during the ECRL shutdown. Transport NSW response was: “Making this change to the network to allow for the T1 Northern and T1 North Shore lines to operate separately, means more trains are required, not less.”

They didn't realise the Hornsby expresses run via Strathfield to terminate at Sydney Terminal.

“Metro integration - service adjustments 2018 fact sheets” have started being distributed at some T1 stations, from contractors wearing “MySydney” attire. (Sadly no Lee Lin Chin to be seen).

These fact sheets are much more honest about the changes than the media release and online information.

The sheets include that late night services will be reduced for lower north shore stations, and that the peak changes will also mean additional journey times for some customers travelling to/from upper north shore and upper northern line stations.

I have yet to see anything for CCN telling customers from smaller stations like Cowan that they will need to change at Hornsby after September to get to Epping or Strathfield.

The stupid replies in those comments about Airport Station Access Fees are a reflection of how much the media has peddled with the message, and confused the entire community.

If only they sold the rights to develop the area above the stations and at Green Square and Mascot.

I don't think the media has mentioned access fees.

It looks the same mentality that spruiks "selling off buses" is just having their ant--progress rants at a new topic.
