I still don't understand why they used Grey and Orange? I would have used colours that actually had to do with CityRail, say yellow and blue like the logo?

Looks like old mate needs the next couple of sizes up, unless he was specifically going for the MUSCLE T look

The shirts are a small make. Kind of stick to you.

Awful material, awful colour.

It is Kogarah station.
I wonder would sector 1 will first receive new uniforms?
Anyways, I wonder if they should change uniforms on 1st July instead?

Sector 1 stations are the first to recieve the new uniform, along with the selected CBD stations.
TfNSW in their logical way decided on this staggered Roll out, supposedly all will have the new uniforms be 1 July.

Would someone like to go to Milsons Point to take a picture, I've just seen workers now trying to put up the NEW Sydney Trains station sign (in Navy Blue with a top orange bar) on Platform 1.

If not, I'll verify in the evening as I saw that on a bus.

Reminds me of the old Telstra branding.

Looks similar to QR Citytrain when they redid the station signs.

Okay guys, let's have a look on these new signs at Milsons Point:

First, let's look at the existing signs. They are informative, clear and easily identified:

Now look at this:

Which look okay.

Now going further:

Mate, where should I exit the station?

Is there any connecting transport available?

In which direction can I access to the lift if I'm disabled?

I want to go to Luna Park. Where should I get off?

Simply, these new signs are NOT GOOD ENOUGH. It appears we are now even going backwards to the first generation heritage signs!

Glad it's only stickers over the existing signage. Just needs to be peeled off to reveal the more informative directional signage.

Having said that, the old signage was more difficult to "create". the "Way Out" had to be aligned the right way :shock:

The only problem is... Central just had its signage reviewed with "Exit A" etc.... :p

On the yellow sign: "For CityRail information"...

Shouldn't it be "For Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink information"?????????? :shock:
