Re: NSW Future Rail Plan - NWRL/Metro/Harbour Crossing

I have done a search on this topic for the info needed but have come up blank.

When I rode the Explorer back from Broken Hill recently it had those covers fitted. They protect the coupling device in case of an animal strike.

Re: Private Observations - July to December 2018

Went past 772 Mamre Road, Kemps Creek this afternoon. Parked on the property were approx 12 white buses and coaches, couldn't identify any of them from the road.

Is this a new multi user yard?

[quote="gilberations"]I’ve heard that CDC NSW will be doing a rebranding, and the current acquisitions make sense to that. I would imagine they’re probably going to do something along the lines of CDC Sydney, CDC Queenbeyan, CDC Hunter, CDC Coffs and the likem

I read something about a charter to Broken Hill and the set not required after that. I guess it may be a way to work it back. Have forgotten the exact details.

Re: How old is too old for a rail replacement bus

The contracts for planned trackwork buses is 25 years of age, with an average age per closedown of 12 years. HOWEVER on emergency rail, there is no limit as this work is unplanned and most times at an inconvenient hour.
