I've got a zip file of the web site for *all* those timetables. I assume the zip itself (barely more than 1MB) was made available for download, as I wouldn't have gone and saved 709 files! :lol:

PM me if you want me to email it.

I recall many of the Central Coast trains would make additional stops at Concord West for people to walk from there to Olympic Park.

I assume the walking route from Concord West to Olympic Park no longer exists as it's never promoted for sporting events or the Royal Easter Show.

It's still there, but interchanging at Strathfield is "more convenient" these days...

It was a looong hike, treeless and exposed to the sun (or rain for that matter). The sheer number of people attending the Olympics justified it, but not now.
