Re: What lessons do you think the pandemics tought you?

2. It is no use trying to buy cheap trains from overseas that won't last, some of you may notice that the Sydney metro trains are already falling apart, same thing with the waratahs.

It demonstrates the absurdity of having 2 incompatible rail systems, when duplicate tracks and platform facilities wouldn't be needed with a single system.

That Interline livery is the best livery -perhaps in Australia. They paid some firm to come up with it. I say money well spent. A shame their Leyland Nationals never got to receive it. The Interline blue front livery was introduced in 2004. The first buses to get panted in this version of the Inter...
