Mixed Platform information

Postby lunchbox » Wed Aug 23, 2017 10:14 am

Would the ever-observant and knowledgeable users of this Board please identify for me the Sydney railway platforms which currently have BOTH electronic departure indicators ON THE PLATFORM, and the traditional sheet timetables, on the same (or adjacent) platform?
Be specific if you can, as to which platforms, and at which stations, are so equipped.

The only places where I can recall recently seeing old-type timetables, was at stations with NSW trains services, such as Berowra.

Off the top of my head I'm pretty sure St Peters still has the paper timetable on the platform, it only just recently got the electronic PIDs. On platform 3/4 not to sure if they installed PIDs on 1&2 it would be wasteful though.

Green Square has the timetable at the top the staircase to the respective platforms.

Went to St Peters today, can confirm it has both paper timetable and PIDS.

EDIT 1/9: PIDS have also been installed on platforms 3&4. Very pointless indeed.

Mount Colah, which is similar to St Peters in that it only recently had PIDS installed

For an update on Transport for NSW's policy on the display of sheet timetables on platforms, see my 14.9.17 post on the Perth thread of this site under "Quick Quiz - train timetables on platforms".
