It appears that, so far, these pens are only in the inner end compartments of power cars. Nothing to indicate their existence or locations.

Not many people would be prepared to use them unless they were seated in the same area, where they could keep watch over them.

I think November has been mentioned as the start date. Is there a new timetable coming out then?

There should be more sets available by then, so it would only be a technicality as to which is the "first".

Obviously coinciding with the Epping to Chatswood Rail Link shutdown.

In that video, I saw words on the internal desto on the Upper Deck that looked like they're typed up on a computer, Must be tiny LED lights.

Besides that, The tour inside a new B set would Be really interesting in that Video.

Is the new timetable just extending Epping terminators to Hornsby or a complete rewrite from scratch?

Sector 3A (Northern/Shore) rewrite. The train paths are already there - though there are some slight reductions in frequency (19 trains/hr to 18 trains/hr?) north of North Sydney in the PM peak I believe.

It is a reconfiguration (an update) with ECRL gone and Epping to Hornsby needing to be reconnected with its southern half. Although not just a simple extension of the Eppings in peak periods in line with plans for future timetables.

On what day, at what time and where will the first B1 passenger service run?
Australia brags about its political system, but their PM says one thing during the election; something else when (s)he takes office, something else at midterm and something else when (s)he leaves.

Some clues were given about 3 posts earlier.

Very hard to predict when B1 might be rostered in
