Re: NSW Rail Observations - February 2017

Run W534 endud up overshooting westmead station by almost an entire train length.
Guard said it was "mechanical failure" but train went from track speed into emergency braking, no braking before the station was even attempted by the driver.

Private Operators December 2016

2 buses were on fire at the perimeter of Sydney Airport, looked like they were volgrens from 7news footage.

Were they carbridge vehicles? Blue emu carpark was mentioned as being the location.

Re: Use of Back Door on Buses

Busways drivers are also usually reluctant to open the back door unless it's at the final stop.

Head office just has the excuse of it being "drivers discretion".

This isn't good policy when you have 4 prams and a bus full of standees

Instead of programming "not in service" or "special" on the desto boards, why do drivers programme the destination on non revenue services?

Re: [Australian] Mike Baird buying new trains off the rack

Seems this would be the first Electric Double Deck train for Hyundai Rotem as the 3 types of DD trains they built were for the american companies that are diesel hauled.

They have only built single deck electrics.
