Carlingford and Rogans Hill lines were built as goods lines to take rural produce down to the city. They both started with a general intention to head towards Dural but neither made it.

Rogans Hill line also had a life as a tram line and part of this will be retraced by the new tramway, together with part of the Sydney Ferries Ltd tramway route eastwards through Camellia.

The real shame is that this line is becoming light rail when it should have been connected to Epping and Chatswood 10 years ago.

I think it could of been connected to Julia's proposed Epping Parramatta rail link witch was a promise that she made during the 2010 federal election campaign but nothing happened after the funding got diverted to the North West rail link

The way the press release is worded indicates that the guarantee is just for Eat Street/Church Street, meaning other sections may begin next year.
